LibriVox est un rêve, une expérience et une question: est-il possible de rassembler suffisamment de volontaires sur le net pour insuffler la vie à des oeuvres libres de droit??

Les bénévoles de LibriVox enregistrent des chapitres de livres tombés dans le domaine public avant de rendre les fichiers audio disponibles en ligne. LibriVox est un projet open source entièrement bénévole, dont le contenu est à libre accès et libre de droits.

La plupart de nos textes viennent de Project Gutenberg et nos fichiers sont hébergés sur Internet Archive.


Notre objectif est de convertir tous les libres tombés dans le domaine public en livres audio disponibles gratuitement sur Internet.

Fundamental Principles

We have five core values, which help guide us in achieving our objective:

  1. Librivox is a non-commercial, non-profit and ad-free project
  2. Librivox donates its recordings to the public domain
  3. Librivox is powered by volunteers
  4. Librivox maintains a loose and open structure
  5. Librivox welcomes all volunteers from across the globe
