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 for our Arthur Conan Doyle series of human readings, and to 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 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.

Free Online Audio Books: The Essential Guide One of my favorite things to do is curl up with a good book. However, with a long commute and a couple of young, energetic boys (ages 2 & 3) it’s rare that I get time to kick back and read. That’s why I love audio books so much – they allow me to enjoy books while I’m on the go. I typically listen to 3-4 audio books per month. Two of these audio books I get because I’m a member of Audible (the world’s largest provider of digital audio books). In the past I also downloaded the other 1-2 audio books from Audible, but eventually I got tired of paying extra for these and decided to see what free audio books were available online for download.
