Over the time, figures show released that downloads have greatly increased this market, a format that first achieved popularity with the invention of the cassette and extended beyond childhood the experience of being read to.
Producing audio books consist of a narrator sitting in a recording booth reading the text, while a studio engineer and a director record and direct the performance. Audiobooks are distributed on CDs, MP3 CDs, and downloadable digital formats.

They are considered a valuable learning tool because of their format. Unlike traditional ones or a video program, people can learn from an audiobook while doing other tasks, although it should be noted that this can detract from the primary task, assuming the learning is not the main activity.

Many people listen as well just to relax or as they drift off into sleep.

Melvin Jerome “Mel” Blanc is regarded as one of the most influential people in the voice-acting industry. He was an American voice actor and comedian, best remembered for his work with Warner Bros as the voice of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Woody Woodpecker, Speedy Gonzales, Tom and Jerry and hundreds of others.
Blanc was the first person to play Toucan Sam in Froot Loops commercials, using a slightly cartoonist version of his natural voice.
Blanc is regarded as one of, if not the, most prolific voice actor in the history of the industry.
He was the first voice actor to get credit in the ending credits and ushered in a new era for voice actors, where they were regarded as a significant part of the creative process, rather than easy-to-replace finishing touches.
Many episodes of the short-lived The Mel Blanc Show are now available on YouTube
