Enjoy Text-Synchronized Audio Books
Some people prefer audio over text and maybe you’re one of them!
An audiobook combines all of the features of the written text and the audio recordings of the text, in a single structured format.
ABooks are narrated by the Authors or by professional narrators (who are mostly actors); which gives our ABooks a natural, authentic, entertaining, and immersive appeal. By synchronizing the text and audio, you have the choice of reading the text and listening to the recordings independently or simultaneously. As the audio is played, the corresponding text is highlighted. This can be very helpful when learning new language, or for people who would like to improve their reading.
Audio books are great for multitasking. They are also a good solution for readers on the move (while commuting to work, walking or jogging). Or switch to Audio mode when you are simply too tired to read.

eBooks purchased on ABooks Community are in ePub3 format:
EPUB is an e-book file format that uses the “.epub” file extension. The term is short for electronic publication and is sometimes styled ePub. EPUB is supported by many e-readers, and compatible software is available for most smartphones, tablets, and computers. EPUB is a technical standard published by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). It became an official standard of the IDPF in September 2007, superseding the older Open eBook standard.
The Book Industry Study Group endorses EPUB 3 as the format of choice for packaging content and has stated that the global book publishing industry should rally around a single standard. The EPUB format is implemented as an archive file consisting of XHTML files carrying the content, along with images and other supporting files. EPUB is the most widely supported vendor-independent XML-based (as opposed to PDF) e-book format; that is, it is supported by almost all hardware readers, except for Kindle.
An ABook combines all of the features of the written text and the audio recordings of the text, in a single structured format. By synchronising the text and audio, you have the choice of reading the text and listening to the recordings independently or simultaneously. As the audio is played, the corresponding text is highlighted. They are great for multitasking (while doing housework for example) and they are also a good solution for readers on the move (while commuting to work, walking or jogging) or when you are simply too tired to read.
Our audio books are narrated by the Authors, or by professional narrators (who are mostly actors); which gives our ABooks a natural, authentic, entertaining, and immersive appeal.
Suddenly, the story is even more alive than it was on the page!
An audiobook (or a talking book) is a recording of a book or other work being read out loud. The term “talking book” came into being in the 1930s with government programs designed for blind readers, while the term “audiobook” came into use during the 1970s when audiocassettes began to replace records. In 1994, the Audio Publishers Association established the term “audiobook” as the industry standard. With the spread of the Internet to consumers in the 1990s, faster download speeds with broadband technologies, new compressed audio formats and portable media players, the popularity of audiobooks increased significantly during the late 1990s and 2000s.
Producing an audiobook consists of a narrator sitting in a recording booth reading the text, while a studio engineer and a director record and direct the performance. If a mistake is made the recording is stopped and the narrator reads it again. With recent advancements in recording technology, many audiobooks are also now recorded in home studios by narrators working independently.
Audio Books purchased on our website do not include the text version. Please purchase the ABook digital format to benefit from Text-synchronization features.
Scanned (Images) PDF
Scanned (Images) Portable Document Format are created by scanning a paper document in order to create an electronic version of document. The scanner takes an image of a paper document and then stores it as an electronic PDF file, rather than electronically identifying each character on a page. Hence, the content of a scanned PDF cannot be searched, selected or edited.
Though Scanned (Images) PDF don’t offer the advanced reading options of other formats, they are a great option for book preservation and conservation, in an effort to address book deterioration due to natural ageing or damages.
We take copyright issues very seriously and want to ensure our Authors don’t infringe upon the rights of others.
Please do not hesitate to send an email to Legal@ABooks.co if your intellectual property has been published on our site without your authorization and we will take immediate action.
