Listening to an audiobook and resume with ebook

posted by bzlister , 1010 days ago , show insights

Audiobooks are a great medium for enjoying a story when occupied by some other task, i.e. driving or cooking. Since most people can read much faster than the speed language is spoken at, reading text is the preferred method if one can apply their full attention. Why can't I listen to an audiobook while driving home, then pick up where I left off in the ebook?

Existing solutions for this experience require users to buy the audiobook and ebook separately on different platforms which do not sync with each other, meaning a lot of time spent flipping through pages in the ebook (the number of which is completely unknown as it is not information available when listening to the audiobook) to find where to resume reading.
