summary Audiobooks or talking books are becoming very popular. They used to be recorded only in specialised production centres for use by people with visual impairments. Since several years ago, many commercial publishers have found an interested public which appreciates listening to these books for leisure. In this contribution, which is a follow up to my ELPUB2008 paper "A new electronic publishing trend: Audiobooks for leisure and studying", I will focus on the delicate balance between commercially published books and the role of specialised production centres. Also issues of cataloguing metadata for audiobooks are discussed.
