Let me just give you guys an example of what I mean, because I think its warranted.

Librivox has this production of the Federalist Papers. There are parts of this that could surely use a lot of improvement.

I think the proper way this should be handled (though it would be more work) would be that three Freepers - one person is Madison, one person is Hamilton, and one person is Jay.

Three well-placed Freepers could knock this out of the park doing it this way. And realistically, you don't actually need me to do it. But I would be happy to lend expertise to anyone who wanted it in whatever way necessary.

I mean, a one-person Federalist Papers would also be an improvement to someone with a great voice and the dedication to that much content.

ON THAT note, I'd like to add a preference.

As born again Christians, we read the Bible, but there are times the act of reading is cumbersome or in some way not feasable so we have resorted to audio versions.

First of all, we're KJV only folks so that limits(?) our listening choices and we've listened to different expressions of audiobook.

Our preference, after a few years of listening around comes back to Alexander Scourby .... the very first audio I ever heard back in the 80's.

The dramatized examples, though well choreographed, are not SO professionally done that our modern day video (we DO love the movies) ears just don't smoothly accept the words being spoken ..... There's a real reason why the movies have professional character actor determiners (CSA) ... because there apparently IS a science to what people see and hear and how the two are co-ordinated as a visual/audio presentation.

Anyway, I appreciate this post and add MY two cents' worth to the contribution.

ALSO .... I favor a male voice over a female voice .... whether that's just me or not, I don't know .... I DO know MY voice is a little high (imo) to be a comfortable audio that folks would like to hear.

For the record, Alexander Scourby is the only voice that does justice to the scriptures .... he's going the same historical way as J. Vernon McGee.
