audiobookVolunteer_320x240Indiana Voices is seeking volunteers to assist in recording audiobooks by monitoring the recording process while following along in a print version of the text, providing pronunciation corrections and quality control. Volunteers need to be detail-oriented, familiar with basic computer use, able to learn the recording software, and have a good “ear” for pronunciation. Prior experience with recording equipment is a plus.

This position is flexible, with shifts available Monday through Friday,8:00 am to 4:30 pm. However, the monitor must be available to work as a team with the reader for at least one hour per week at a consistent time.

Indiana Voices is also seeking volunteers to “proofread” new audiobooks by listening to the work in its entirety, comparing the recording to the printed work, and marking discrepancies, mispronunciations, and other errors. Volunteers must be detail-oriented and have a good “ear” for proofreading.

This position allows volunteers to work at the Indiana State Library or from home. For in-library proofreaders, shifts are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. At home volunteers can set their own hours, although completed projects must be returned in a timely manner.
