The audiobook market is currently held back by availability and cost of titles, as well as preference for narrators with different voices. The subscription model and AI voice narration will solve these issues — but we need audio rights licensing reform to make it happen.
In this solo show:
- Streaming and subscription models
- AI voices will narrate mass-market audio content with human narrators producing artisan audio experiences
- Audio licensing will expand for different levels of listener experience
- Authors and publishers will sell directly from their own platforms to superfans who want to support creators
This is the second in my AI episodes based on my new book, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Virtual Worlds: The Impact of Converging Technologies On Authors and the Publishing Industry.
