What is "Audiobooks with Audacity?"
Audiobooks with Audacity is a self-paced, online course that shows you how to record, edit, and master professional quality audiobooks to ACX specifications, using the free software program, Audacity.
Why I created this course
I believe that anyone CAN get paid to create audiobooks, but getting started can be a little tricky, especially when it comes to meeting the ACX requirements (which you MUST be able to do if you want to sell audiobooks on Audible.)
When I first started, there were no courses or books that showed you exactly what you needed to do, especially if you were using Audacity to record and edit your audiobook. I wasted months messing around with effects, trying to figure things out, and having books rejected by ACX because I didn't know what I was doing.
It was embarrassing and I almost gave up.
After months of research and testing, I FINALLY discovered a process that worked!
I also found a free tool that let me check my audio so that I could be sure that it met the ACX requirements BEFORE I submitted my books. This allowed me to work faster. Suddenly, I could finish more books in a shorter period of time. That meant that I earned more income and grew my portfolio, which gave me even more credibility as a new narrator and the confidence to raise my rates.
I teach this exact process inside of Audiobooks with Audacity. I also share loads of tools, advice and resources that I wish someone would have shared with me when I was getting started.
