Speech synthesis, based on artificial intelligence, makes it possible to generate spoken text from written text.

This is another hard blow for the media industry and regional information in Outaouais. The Médialo company suspends the activities of its newspapers in the region, i.e., L'Info Petite-Nation, L'Info de la Vallée, L'Info de la Basse-Lièvre and L'Envol MRC des Collines.

On the newspapers' respective websites, the Medialo company informs readers that despite the loyalty you have shown us over the last few years, printed newspapers and the updating of websites in Outaouais will be temporarily suspended from from February 7, 2024.

This difficult decision was taken due to the lack of financial profitability of our publications in this geographical area and great difficulty in recruiting, we can read in the note addressed to readers.

The company – headquartered in Saint-Hubert, a suburb of Montreal – says it is aware of the importance of offering quality and local information, but it must ensure the sustainability of its activities.

She specifies that she hopes to be able to resume the distribution of her printed newspapers and the updating of her websites as soon as possible.
