Listen button powered by


This plugin allows you to add the SoundGecko ‘Listen’ button to each post of your WordPress blog that when clicked allows readers to hear your post read out.

This plugin benefits your site by expanding its distribution to a broader audience and making it more accessible to readers.

You can see an example on the i started something blog.

You can automatically insert the buttons below or above your blog posts or you can use the template tag to insert the links wherever you like.

You can change the size, text, placement and whether it appears on pages in addition to posts.

To use the template tag, add the tag inside the WordPress loop:


  • Users can easily begin listening to your content and download as an MP3
  • Configure the plugin as best suits your needs
  • Add the listen button
