The Verge: Publishers are pissed about Amazon’s upcoming Audible Captions feature

The Verge: Publishers are pissed about Amazon’s upcoming Audible Captions feature. “Earlier this week, Audible revealed that it was working on a new feature for its audiobook app: Audible Captions, which will use machine learning to transcribe an audio recording for listeners, allowing them to read along with the narrator. While the Amazon-owned company claims it is designed as an educational feature, a number of publishers are demanding that their books be excluded, saying these captions are ‘unauthorized and brazen infringements of the rights of authors and publishers.'”
