Hey there, welcome to RadioNewsAI! 🎉
So you've signed up and are all ready to dive in, but not quite sure where to start? No worries, here’s a straightforward guide to assist you.
Let's start by creating a newscaster - think of it as the format for your news broadcasts.
Head to the "Newscasters" section and click "+ Add Newscaster". Choose your language, select a voice that suits your preference (you can change it later if needed), and opt for a template to begin with. Don't worry, this is just a starting point you’ll be able to modify the newscaster at any point moving forward.
Depending on the template you select, you might be prompted to add a source to the news, weather, or traffic sections of your newscaster. If this is your first setup, it’s likely you don't have any sources in your account yet. But not to worry, you can create your first source during this step.
When it comes to news, a source can either be an RSS feed or you can manually craft stories by creating a manual source. For weather and traffic source types, we offer a built-in option that automatically fetches weather and traffic data for your specified location.
You can explore more about sources here.
If you don’t have an available RSS feed, or if you'd prefer to explore without establishing a feed, a "manual source" might be your best bet. It allows you to add stories manually. Simply navigate to the "Stories" section from the left sidebar and click the "+ Add" button in the upper right corner.
If you haven’t created a manual source yet, one will be automatically generated here. If you have existing (multiple) manual sources, you can select your preferred source at this juncture. This function essentially categorizes the story into this source, allowing you to utilize the "manual source" just like any other regular source in a newscaster.
Congrats, you've set up the basics of your first newscaster! For the following steps:
Enjoy exploring RadioNewsAI and creating your custom newscasts!
