Listening Books depends on the generous help our readers give, on a voluntary basis, to record our educational audiobooks. Our Sound Learning project records titles which cannot be sourced in the commercial market. The titles support the National Curriculum and are extremely valuable to our young listeners who are studying. Our readers give up their spare time during the day to come in and record for us simply because they love books and because they want to make a contribution to our service.
Listening Books would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers, past and present – without them, our library stock would be much less varied and interesting.
We mainly use trained actors but we will consider working with anyone who has the appropriate experience and can spare the time. To volunteer please submit a sample of your work for consideration on CD or email MP3 clips to firstname.lastname@example.org. Ideally the recording should contain at least two examples of your voice, reading different book genres (e.g. fiction, non-fiction, children's).
We are currently recruiting for a volunteer reader to help us record textbooks and other non-fiction titles. Please follow this link to find out more.
