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.

Radio was chosen as medium because it communicates best the essential qualities of classical literature; namely, strong plots and vivid characters fashioned out of a use of language whose roots lie in oral tradition. The Globe produced four major series over the next decade, beginning with Don Quixote, and subsequently, Dead Souls, Madame Bovary, and last, 16 Stories by Anton Chekhov. Each dramatization was adapted by writer John Siscoe in collaboration with writer/director Jean Sherrard. Their scholarly advisors ranged from Roger Shattuck to Donald Fanger to Francis Steegmuller (the brilliant translator of a monumental Madame Bovary).
