Calibre Audio receives no government funding and we rely on the generosity of people like you to fund our running costs. Every year we need to raise almost £1.5 million to deliver our audiobook service and would not be able to do this without the generosity of the individuals, trusts and companies who support us. We really couldn’t do this without you.

Each time I listen to a book I think of all the kind people who make the service possible. Without them my life would be impossible. Sheila from Wiltshire.

Audio Checkers

Do you enjoy listening to audiobooks or know someone who does?

Calibre Audio Library is looking for volunteers to check their recordings before they go into the library. You will need to be able to listen to audiobooks on MP3 CD and be able to accurately report the location of any errors using the digital display on your listening device (e.g. a computer or a CD player with the feature).

It is also important that checkers can complete a checking form and relate back to us any problems on the recording.

Distance from Calibre is not an issue as we are able to send the recordings free of postage using ‘Articles for the Blind’ labels.

Please contact Denise James, our Editorial Coordinator, on 01296 432 339 if you would like to become involved.

Whatever you choose to do, thank you. You will make a difference and we really do appreciate all your support!
