Project Gutenberg releases 5,000 free audiobooks using neural text-to-speech technology

Summary: Project Gutenberg has released over 5,000 free audiobooks using neural text-to-speech technology. These audiobooks, which include classic literature and public-domain material, were created by scanning books with text-to-speech software that sounds natural and can accurately parse formatting. Users can access these audiobooks on platforms like the Internet Archive, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts. This open-source approach aims to make literature more accessible, particularly benefiting readers who are visually impaired or learning a new language. The project solves issues such as parsing different digital book formats and distinguishing relevant text from extraneous material.
