Why people listen to Amazon Audible rather than read?
Great for people with impaired sight
It goes without saying that this is probably one of the biggest reasons people turn to audio for their reading. Virtually all genres are available on audio and most new books are now also published in this format.
Time saving & convenience
An absolute time saver for when you’re doing things around the house or garden when you don’t have to think too much about what you’re doing. Simple things such as washing the dishes or folding clothes or even just relaxing on the sofa with eyes closed.
Consume more books
As a result of not having to sit down to read you will get through more books in a year than you would reading a physical book.
Better retention (for some people)
Some people learn by sight better than by sound and some people are the complete opposite, so audio books can help this latter group. This is especially good for anyone learning a language, because you can pause and repeat the sentence as you learn.
Amazon Audible allows you to alter the speed of the narration to either 1.5x or 2x speed, which can also aid in speeding up your thinking – 1.5x is perfect for most people.
