X-Ray for Audiobooks is a feature concept I developed at Audible.
The concept behind X-ray for Audiobooks is to solve one of the major short comings of listening to books. Unlike text, its difficult to locate and contextualize a character, quote or significant concept in the flow of an Audiobook, all you have to work with is a timeline.
Loosing the context of a complex story is annoying. It forces the user to go back and re-listen to parts to understand what’s happening.
I also envisioned this being a game-changing feature for students (who like me) have to deal with learning differences like Dyslexia. Research has shown that information is easier retained when its presented to multiple senses. X-Ray for Audiobooks was a whole new take on what listening and learning could be like.
