“Every Single Day” is available through WhisperSync for Voice!
It only took … a year.
WhisperSync for Voice is my preferred method of listening to audiobooks. Finally, after a year and I have no idea how or why, my best-selling book “Every Single Day” is finally available through the service.
In case you don’t know about it, WhisperSync for Voice is an add-on tool or product that links together with a Kindle reader. It syncs the text and the audio perfectly and even highlights the words as the narrator reads them aloud. It doesn’t work on regular Kindle readers because they can’t do audio so this is something for your phone.
One of the main reasons I like it so much is that I can listen to my book on audio, which is my preferred way of reading, but then I can instantly switch back to the text version highlight a section and, for example share that section of text. Of course, since I’m now in the regular Kindle app, I can also highlight, make notes, and bookmark. One of my challenges with audio apps is the ability to share snippets of audio. I think it’s possible and I have done it on occasion, but now that I think about it the fact that I can’t remember if I did it or not it probably means that it was difficult enough to not do it very often and clearly I don’t use the service even if it does exist.
I wish I could tell you especially if you’re a dear author reading along here, how Amazon decides whether or not your book qualifies for WhisperSync for Voice but alas I truly do not know how it works. I’ve written to them, I’ve asked around, and there are some guidelines (for example, obviously, make sure the audio matches up exactly with the text) but even then many of my books are not in the program and it remains a mystery to me.
If patience is the name of the game it’s a good thing I have a lot of that.
If you’d like to experience “Every Single Day” on WhisperSync for voice, it’s now available. Note that you have to buy the Kindle version and the audio version, but another benefit is the audio is often cheaper this way.
