Ways to Volunteer
You can help the Dubai Audiobook Library grow by scanning or retyping (transcribing) a printed bookand then adding those files to Library. You will need a computer and word processing software. If you would like to scan printed books, you will need to have access to a scanner and Optical Character Recognition software. Above all, you will need a love of reading and the desire to help others.
After the scanned or retyped books are added to the Library, other volunteers will proofread them. They will review the text for errorsand format the books so that they be read using phones, computers, digital braille devices, and more. A computer with internet access, word processing software, and a talent fordetailed work are all you need. People of all ages, students and professionals are encouraged to proofread books.
