Today’s video break: LibriVox

Thousands of free audiobooks, multiple languages, a vibrant volunteer community. If you haven’t explored LibriVox, take  time to watch this wonderful three-minute introductory tutorial by Dan Capistan. There will be an entire series of videos posted on YouTube, walking interested listeners and readers through downloading and creating recordings of public domain titles. You can find the second video here, describing how to set up your in-home recording studio with recommended software & hardware. If you’d like to learn more from LibriVox founder Hugh McGuire, check out my interview with him in this  “Inside the Audiobook Studio” post.
