Audiobook. Although paper books are still the main form of reading, the number of people listening to audio books is increasing. In fact, audiobook are growing in all formats. At the same time as this growth, the methods for producing audio books are also evolving rapidly.
The most common audio books are stories from novels. Fact books, often called non-fiction, are not as common. Creating audiobook from non-fiction books can be very difficult, as non-fiction books can contain illustrative images and tables, and these images and tables simply do not work properly in spoken language. Similarly, reading a fact book can sometimes feel a little boring and lack history. This means that the audiobook version of the factbook must have narrative elements such as accents, sound illustrations and reflected syllables for the audience to understand.

When it comes to creating audiobook, most people think it has something to do with recording reading. This is also correct, but only half the truth. In addition, you should prepare first, then edit, proofread, adjust and publish. Everything takes time.
Before you start reading the book, remember that people who listen to the book want you to have the same voice throughout the book. When reading, the reading about the pronunciation should have the same tone, but not sure. Our voice depends, for example, on whether we feel stressed and many other factors. If you choose to read your own story, you will build a natural reputation.

Audiobook are best for stories, so if possible, depending on how the fact books are written, it may be wise to read fact books as stories. It can be written in form and is already narrative, which of course makes it a story. But it can also be written from a point of view, and then you have to consider and decide if the story format is appropriate or if the story should be made more neutral, which can be a bit boring.
