If you are like me, you probably wonder how audiobooks get recorded. Vox has done an investigative video on the process, which is probably a lot more detailed than you think.
Remember, they are recording hours, sometimes as high as 20-30 hours per book. They need to make this efficient. Further, reading the text in a monotone voice does nothing for audiobook sales, so inflection is important, which means you need to know the context of the whole section you are reading. Even more, if you do characters with different tones across a whole series, you’ll need to remember their weird names and intentional inflections.
