We need your help in getting audio books produced and out to those with temporary or permanent disabilities that prevent them from being able to read traditional printed books.
Volunteers will review 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 manipulate 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.
The volunteer work will begin at the Idaho Commission for Libraries, so the volunteer will need to work sometime between Monday - Friday, 8AM - 4:30PM. Once the volunteer feels comfortable working on their own, they can work from home.
