I just noted this site:

http://www.interactiveselfstudy.com/

It provides "audio-text synchronized books", which are audio books played by a specially developed software program that uses the text of the book for navigation and also shows translations of the separate sentences to other languages.

A rather cool idea, and it appears that they are beginning to use Librivox books in combination with their software!

Currently "White Fang" and "Taming a Bicycle" (Mark Twain) are available.

If this has already been mentioned somewhere, feel free to ignore. However, I think it is great to see Librivox recordings being used in other projects like this!

Now this is why we put our recordings in the public domain. It's great to see others using our stuff for great purposes!!
