Re: audio book volume


If the audio files are MP3 then MP3Gain which is a free program, can
be used to increase the volume of the audio files.

Hi Brian,

The need to increase the volume of a book is quite rare; not enough to
warrant the purchase of new software.

It only happens with daisy audio from CELA.

The next time it happens I'll send a note to their help desk.

With the on-going problems on the new CELA website, a timely response to
such a request may take some time indeed.

Dear Monte & list:

You could normalize the audio files with Goldwave sound Editor or Total
Recorder with the AGC add-on. The AGC add-on is a bit expensive.

This lets you boost the average audio level of the sound files.

Hi TechTalkers,

CELA is the Canadian Equitable Library Association.

It is for canucks with print disabilities.

Sometimes when I download talking books in daisy format the volume is a bit
low even when I set the volume on my victor reader 2nd gen to high.

I don't want to attach speakers or use earphones.

Is there a program I can use to change some aspect of the book file/s to
make them louder?
