Re: Converting a library of audiobooks for blind people

Thanks for all the answers! Indeed - wav would have been my working (intermediate) format - I will go with flac now though compression/decompression takes some time. The main issue is to remove noise (audio cassette), cut off beginning and end (they contain technical information to handle the casset...

The typical audiobook contains 10-15 single mp3 files previously converted from the original analog Compact Cassettes. My idea is to convert all mp3 files to wav, merge th...

Some flac files not readable in Goldwave 6.09

From time to time I get some flac audio files that cannot be opened by Goldwave. I am not able to identify any systematic reason - but all of these files can be opened with Audacity or Adobe Audition 3.
