What is an audiobook?
An audiobook is a production of recorded audio that is designed to be read by the reader, rather than being heard by an audience.

Audiobooks are narrated and are read by a professional voice actor, musician, or a recording of the author. Professional voice actors record the audio, which is synced to the text of your manuscript. The finished product is then either distributed digitally or released in a CD format.
