This is worrisome news…I love the audio stories via Audible, especially narrators like R.C. Bray and John Lee. I sincerely hope other narrators won’t lose their jobs. I understand why it is happening but sigh.

In November, Amazon announced a tool that lets authors transform their eBooks into narrated audiobooks using a new synthetic speech AI. Since then, over 40,000 audiobooks have been produced on Audible using this technology, some in as little as 52 minutes. source: The Neuron reports
