Calling all Book lovers!

At Learning Ally, volunteers create audiobooks for students with learning differences; our member students may be blind or have a vision impairment, or have a learning difference like dyslexia.

If you like listening to audiobooks, enjoy learning new things, or have a great voice, this is the volunteer opportunity for you!


ALL VOLUNTEERS SUPPORT US VIRTUALLY.



We have a training course that all volunteers go through, and not everyone will become a reader. We’re looking for friendly voices that can read aloud with fluency, which is critical to comprehension for students with learning differences.

For some subjects and textbooks, especially at the high school and college level, our narrators may need subject area expertise.


The quality of our books is our priority, so in order to become readers, volunteers will need to submit an audition. That is why completing the training is very important as it provides key elements for a successful audition.


If you feel that you do not want to complete the training to become a reader, please see below other volunteering opportunities :


Listeners

Do you love audiobooks? You could be a good \"Listener\" for Learning Ally and help us deliver a positive audiobook experience for students. You can listen to juvenile and popular fiction or use your subject area expertise to listen to textbooks. You'll provide feedback to narrators, highlight issues with fluency and tone, mispronunciations, and audio quality.


Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance (QA) is the final step in the process of creating an audiobook. In a nutshell, it means playing our books back just like our students will, and checking for anything that interferes with an enjoyable reading experience.
