Booktrack aims to change the way we read

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, August 6, 2015

Booktrack aims to change the way we read.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    In the category of everything old is new again…comes a Web site called Booktrack.  It lets readers re-create the experience of old time radio…in the digital era.  Co-founder and CEO Paul Cameron…

“Booktrack is a synchronized sound track while you read a story.  So it’s not an audio book.  It’s a combination of music, ambient audio and sound effects and it automatically synchronizes to your reading speed to match what’s happening in the scene of the story.”

Start reading the Wizard of Oz….and it can sound like this….

(sound)

Many books…in the public domain…are free and you can have fun creating your own sound tracks too….and share them with others.    The site again is Booktrack.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
