Update 4 added 10/7/23:
Earlier this week, Findaway finally removed the Machine Language clause from the Distribution Agreement.
As I wrote in 2021, taking steps to remove the human voice and replace it with a synthesized one destroys the art form.
I certainly do not want or intend to participate in any attempt to create artificial voices meant to replace human narrators.
However, I unknowingly may have done that very thing by choosing to distribute audiobooks through FindawayVoices.com. Today, I took action to revoke Findaway’s license to Apple to use my audiobooks for machine learning.
