About

Do you have an interest in reviewing and editing audio production? We need your help in getting audio books and magazines out to those with temporary or permanent disabilities that prevent them from being able to read traditional printed books.

Volunteers will review and edit studio recorded books and magazines using digital audio recording software. They will make notes of errors in narration or deviation from printed text so that the narrator can go back and fix. They will also edit recording as needed to minimize background noise and create a high quality product.

The Idaho Commission for Libraries staff and volunteers will provide training for this position, but will need volunteers who feel comfortable working with computers and software, have an ear to detect unwanted noises on the recording, and are able to commit to volunteer for at least 6 months.

Idaho Commission for Libraries' volunteers get access to thousands of great audio books, can join in ongoing learning opportunities and participate in staff and volunteer festivities throughout the year.

We offer a flexible volunteer schedule Monday - Friday 8AM - 5PM.

If you are interested in being a narrator, this job is for you too! We ask that all narrators begin as reviewers for training purposes.
