Project Gutenberg brings free audiobooks to the global community with AI-generated book narration

The oldest digital library and a leading distributor of free eBooks, Project Gutenberg wanted to make its collection more accessible to a broader community of members, including people who have visual impairments and those around the world who might not have access to traditional libraries. To achieve this goal, the organization collaborated with Microsoft on an AI-driven solution to create audiobooks at scale, creating nearly 5,000 new audio books.
