13. Evolution of audio books - LibriVox

One day (12 Feb) I talk about the latest e-book with text-to-speech, and the next it is free audiobooks with human voices. So where is the evolution? Well, I checked out this system by finding out if it contained Darwin's Voyage of the Beagle. And it does. (Darwin's birthday is 12 February.)

To be more precise, I can listen to The Voyage chapter by chapter on my computer (with an American accent) or download the whole 629 Meg book for listening too later.
