Main article: Audiobook
To create an audiobook, the text of a work is read by a person - as a rule, by a professional actor or a group of such - or (less often) by a speech synthesizer, after which it is recorded on some audio medium. Certain noise or musical accompaniment can also be added to the text. Audiobooks have both advantages (for example, the ability to perceive information by people who, for one reason or another, are not capable of reading), and disadvantages (in particular, a sound file is much more volume than the text itself).
