In this paper, A Multi-source intelligent DJ (Mi-DJ) service is introduced. It is an audio program platform that integrates different media types, including audio and text format content. It acts like a DJ who plays personalized audio program to user whenever and wherever users need. The audio program is automatically generated, comprising several audio clips; all of them are from either existing audio files or text information, such as e-mail, calendar, news or user-preferred article. Our unique program generation technology makes user feel like listening to a well-organized program, instead of several separated audio files. The program can be organized dynamically, which realizes context-aware service based on location, userís schedule, or other user preference. With appropriate data management, text processing and speech synthesis technologies, Mi-DJ can be applied to many application scenarios. For example, it can be applied in language learning and tour guide.
