Guide to the good life for Renaissance Italians, Bell
of the 16th c. shows us Italy from a completely new perspective: through handbooks that only try to live a better life in the homes of the middle brewer Italians. In order to overcome a challenge such as the conception of a young man, the handbooks contain proposals such as a blood block to bind your husband's right buttocks. Bell's travel through books that scientists have long considered of little literary value gives us a fresh and unexpectedly funny scourge.
Making a Talking Book - RNIB
It has been 80 years since the RNIB' s founding of the Calling Book Service, and during this period it has provided literacy enjoyment for millions of visually impaired and visually impaired souls. How are audiobooks actually made? In the UK alone, the International Publishers' Associations estimate that 184,000 new or updated titles will have been published in 2013.
The RNIB has about 23,000 items in all - an amazing offering that is constantly expanding, but we can't quite keep up. Our book selection committee decides which of our collections to include. Every montly it gathers to choose about 50 items to include, taking into account what members of the book club have asked for and which ones are currently or otherwise loved in the press - for example, if they have been short-listed for a grand priz.
It is of course sometimes simple to find out when something is in demand: Harry Potter audiobooks were later released in audio book form at the same press release so that visually impaired and visually impaired people could watch them at the same times as their seeing colleagues. There is a big distinction when it comes to speaking a book, whether you understand the storyteller correctly or not.
The RNIB has 400 storytellers at its disposal, and after a quick study of the book we select the one who can best make it come to live. Not surprisingly, some of the factors by which you choose a storyteller are gender: Can you think of a Holden Caulfield or Bridget Jones woman? However, things like accents and the nature of the book are also important - the storyteller of "Pride and Prejudice" is probably not the one who wants to see the latest Jack Reacher.
As soon as the audition is over, it's almost recording in. However, first the storyteller has to get a feeling for the book. An audio book can literally spend 10 lessons or more, so it is not done in a session. Instead, the storyteller reads up to 140 pages per full page and repeats individual movements several often.
It' not possible to make a complete shot at once, so the shot is divided into small parts so that the producers can put together the best take to make a smooth audio enjoyment. Hardcover textbooks have clear chapter and page number segments, or you can store your space with a note.
The DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) offers audiobook users the possibility to move between pages, sections or even words and to bookmark them digitally. Produced at RNIB Peterborough, where 15 CD-R replication machines record audio book recordings on disks using tracks that members have already check out from the libraries and put the name of each book on the album.
Thanks to technical progress, audio book can now also be supplied on a flash drive, but our DAISY CD's are all made to order. When they return to the RNIB Peterborough offices, they are disassembled into granulates, which are then re-used for everything from flower pots to streetbeds. So, next in the backyard, look at the flower pot.
