The Audio Books Project

The Audio Books Project
Project Gutenberg makes audio eBooks available for some of the same great literature available in plain text. Our listings are divided into two categories: Human-read and computer-generated audio books. These files can be very large, so are not well suited for people using a modem or other low-speed connection. Human-read Audio Books Thanks to AudioBooksForFree.com for our Arthur Conan Doyle series of human readings, and to LiteralSystems.org for work on new readings by volunteers. We are also working with Librivox, a similar effort to get people volunteering to read. We are still adding new audio eBooks read by people, primarily through work by LiteralSystems.org and Librivox. Browse our list of human-read audio books. Readings by Computers The computer-generated voices used in these books are similar to those on automated systems used by the blind, as well as some telephone automation systems. Most of these titles were generated by Mike Eschman, but a few were made by other people.

Best Websites for Free Audiobooks Audiobooks can bring together the best of both worlds: The joys of a good story and the convenience of easy listening. They also often serve as a great way to pass time whether you’re cooking up your favorite dish or out for a long drive. While audiobooks may lack the feel and sweet smell of a traditional book, a well done voiceover can do more than make up for the loss of aesthetics. It can be an engaging ride that is both worthwhile and convenient on-the-go. But alas, audiobooks don’t always come cheap. View topic - Attention New Members Greetings bibliophiles all!
