AudioQ (Round 5)

Portugal Project type: large Cofina Media


AudioQ is collaborative project of Cofina Media and Priberam that aims to build a suite of journalistic products in the voice services space by bringing real-time, conversational news experience to consumers, namely through the creation of a series of podcasts with Narrated News, featuring a daily morning and evening audio news briefing, and custom voice-based Q&A apps for Portuguese news content.

The solution

With the emergence of voice assistants and smart home devices, voice searches and voice first interactions are quickly rising, but the number of Portuguese audio-based journalistic products that currently exists is very limited. AudioQ will support the establishment of a new editorial initiative at Cofina. It will produce newsworthy journalistic digital products based on audio content in the Portuguese language covering topics ranging from breaking news, sports, economy, events, fashion, lifestyle and local news.
