    Dear KayRay:

    I’m researching an article for GelfMagazine about the Kindle. With its automated read-aloud feature, it may impact the audiobook community. I’d appreciate your insight…if you’re interested in participating, please email be at

    Hi Benjamin,

    No matter how good the Kindle’s text-to-speech is, I seriously doubt if it will be, for many listeners, an acceptable substitute our for free, human-read audiobooks — and in any case LibriVox volunteers are usually so passionate about making their recordings that they will make them whether or not they have an audience.

    We’re not allowed to record anything that’s under copyright, so the Kindle feature will be a real benefit for those readers who can’t afford (or even find) audiobooks of copyrighted works!
