This position requires two volunteers: one to narrate the audiobook while the other manages the recording/monitoring process. Team members may work in both positions, allowing each to narrate an audiobook. When applying for this position it is expected that the applicant has a team member lined up to fulfill the team requirement.

There is a weekly time commitment of at least one hour required for each audio recording session. Also, teams will need to be willing to spend the amount of time needed to complete a book, as one book can take weeks or months to complete. Recording sessions would take place at the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis M-F between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm depending on schedule availability. Book titles are selected by the Indiana Voices Director.

Monitors must be comfortable with learning new technology and software. However, no prior experience is required and training will be provided. An audition is required for narrators.
