I'm hearing of ways to create audiobooks using machine learning. A quick google revelas two standout services - https://deepzen.io and https://www.getspeechify.com/. I'd be very interested in knowing if anyone used them and what was the experience? What did the final product sound like?

Audible does not allow audiobooks that are not narrated by a human. I don't know the rules for the other services, but Audible is by far the largest one.

Ah, thanks for that...did not know that...there goes my plans to make millions :)
While we're on the topic, what do most people do to create audiobooks from existing books? Partner with voice artists and split royalties?

probably but you lose a lot of money splitting royalties if it's a good-selling audiobook

advise you to pay the narrator upfront for production & keep all the royalties for yourself
