Format and compatibility for Online Distributors

What are the audio requirements if I want to submit my audio book to online audio book Marketplaces?

Audio book self-publishing is a bit of labyrinth when it comes to formats and choices. QNS can produce your audio book in the following formats:

  • MP3
  • Downloadable audio file for your website
  • Chapter files for serialising on local radio stations or your website
  • DAISY – specifically for use in DAISY players used by people with vision impairments

The requirements will change depending on which distributors want to sell your book for you. Don’t worry – we will walk you through it as you go.

Scorched by Annette Henderson

Shark Arm Unhooked by Breanda Cross
