Enjoy Education With Audio Books

 

An audio book is a recording of commercially available printed material. It is an alternative form of books. The education systems are constantly innovating and modifying the way lessons are taught. The challenges of physically handicapped (like blindness) people are now minimised with the emergence of new education strategies. Audio book is one of them. These are actually books that are read aloud and recorded. Through this kind of book, an illiterate person can also enjoy the content and get the knowledge. Audio books are generally distributed on CDs, cassette tapes, downloadable digital formats and most recently, some digital formats.

Authors and publishers now recognise the advantages of transforming published book into audio books. Some book publishers even predicted that these format of books would exceed the sales of paperback books or e-books one day. Why this is so, is understandable when you consider the benefits of these books. The main advantages are,- (1) For many people, listening to an audio book is more entertaining and exciting than reading a printed book. (2) Downloading these books are quick and easy. (3) For the book publishers, recordings can be duplicated easily and downloadable books will never run out of stock. (4) These books are affordable Many audio book clubs provide audio book download and rental service at low cost. (5) The parents can listen together with their kids and have fun. An audio book can be the best alternative of a bedtime story.

Publishers and producers use compact disc, cassette tapes, or the online portal as medium of audio book. Currently, CDs have dominated the audio book format. It is so because CDs are now on the paradigm when it comes to audio technology. The cassette tape format currently takes about 40% of the audio books sold and purchased through the market, according to the estimates. But the fastest growing segment of format type for audio book is the downloadable type. The downloadable books are the most convenient format because the book is stored online or virtually.

Sometimes, audio books manufacturers also hire famous celebrities to read out the contents. This is based on thinking that several people would appreciate it more and would be more interesting. Finally, aside from being academically useful, it can also be used to teach people.
