The Indiana Voices program records audio versions of Indiana-related books and magazines and makes the recordings available to the blind and visually impaired through the Talking Books and Braille Library. Indiana 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.
