Quick Publishing is the first publisher to use Lessac Technologies to create audio books of some of their titles. Lessac has developed a new automated method for producing near human quality expressive speech from plain text. The synthetic voice has been taught to recognize punctuation (such as question marks). That, along with other techniques, allow it to reproduce the natural rhythm and tone of a human voice.
So far the following Quick Publishing titles are available as audio books. You can hear samples of the audio and also order the books from Lessac Technologies by clicking this link.
