The Audio Books Project

From Project Gutenberg, the first producer of free ebooks: The Audio Books Project

Project Gutenberg (PG) makes audio eBooks available for some of the same great literature that is available in plain text. The listings are divided into two categories: Human-read and computer-generated audio books. (Note: The computer-generated voices used in these books are similar to those on automated systems used by the blind, as well as some telephone automation systems. PG is no longer creating new machine-generated books, but is working on methods to automatically create them on demand (that is, by choosing options, then getting the file within a short time). )
