You can't afford NOT to record.

According to a Pew tracking survey conducted throughout 2010, 84 percent of American undergraduates now own iPods or other MP3 players. The potential audience for audio textbooks has never been greater.

They'll learn. You'll earn.

The Audio Publishers Association's 2011 Sales Survey reveals that audiobook unit sales increased 10 percent over the previous year. As more Americans learn to multitask, audiobook sales will continue to grow.

The long and the short of it ... we tell to sell.

While Texts In Audio is known for its book-length projects, we also produce great-sounding commercials and voiceover work fast and affordably. Just call to let us know what you need.

    Services


    AUDIO NARRATION AND PRODUCTION

    Our name says it all. Texts In Audio converts texts into audio. We create faithful word-by-word narrations of completed books or galleys, and also customize projects—from abridging collegiate textbook chapters into audio study guides, to scripting and recording narrations that sync with your b-roll video footage.

    Our basic services include....


    ACADEMIC TEXTBOOKS AND STUDY GUIDES

    MAKING THE TOUGH STUFF EASY

    College, high school, and professional education depends upon textbooks and lectures─a combination of print and audio. Although textbook publishers still produce mostly print, students prefer listening over reading—and over 80 percent of college and high school students carry portable audio players.

    Textbooks in our audiobook format foster better reading comprehension and fluency, vocabulary development, and improved achievement. They also offer schools an immediate and affordable solution to accommodate students with vision impairments, dyslexia, and other learning disabilities.

    Minimum project cost: $600.


    FICTION AND MEMOIR AND ESSAYS

    OH MY!

    Tone changes often in these sorts of books, as do the voices of multiple characters. If you're worried about characterizations, accents, emotions, or other voice acting nuances, we invite you to try before you buy. Send us two or three pages of your most challenging material, and we'll send you a short 'audition' sample for free.

    SOUND LIKE A MILLION FOR A LOT LESS

    Our team has significant advertising and marketing experience creating, executing, and selling effective impressions within several multimedia genres including online news, magazine features, TV, radio, newspaper, direct response, and web series.

    CORPORATE PRESENTATIONS AND MATERIALS

    WE MAKE YOUR AWESOME COMPANY SOUND THAT WAY

    Whether it's training new employees, or pitching potential clients, businesses routinely repeat information. So do it well. By recording your best training tactics or scripted client pitch, you'll never forget to address critical points. We can record your presentation from a script, or help write it for you. Need a podcast? No problem. We can do that—with interviews. PR is in our bailiwick, too. We don't think of PR as just Public Relations. In competition PR means Personal Record. Let us help you set some.

    For pricing and terms, click here. Just like our audio fee structure, you pay only for what you receive. For the audio, it's $600 per delivered hour of playback. For writing, you pay for the length of the script. The remainder is due upon receipt of the completed project.

    Minimum project cost: $600.


    AUDIOBOOK DISTRIBUTION AND FULFILLMENT

    IF YOUR AUDIO IS PLAYING IN AN EMPTY FOREST…

    We deliver your audio project via CDs or digital files in your format of choice (MP3, AAC, WAV, etc.), or both. If you'd also like us to help you with distribution, we will identify budget-friendly vendors and handle arrangements such as pressing and packaging CDs, or partnering with audio download sites.
