What is more correct — audiobook or audio book?
Industry professionals and regular end users both refer to this type of media as “audiobook”, not “audio book”. The Audio Publishers Association (APA) and AudioFile Magazine both use the word audiobook. … The word word “audiobook” is also found spelt as a single word in English dictionaries.
How can I play the audiobooks on my device?
The audiobooks available on our website can be played on any device, computer, phone or tablet as long as you are using a supported browser like Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Google Chrome and have an active internet connection.
You do not need any special software besides any of the above three supported browsers. Just ensure that you are running the latest version of your browser.
HELP! None of the audiobooks work!
Our website uses certain modern technologies (for speed, reliability and security) that may not be supported on some older devices. In some old iPads and Android tablets for instance, neither Apple nor Google provide up-to-date versions of their web browsers, Safari and Chrome respectively. In such cases, you can still enjoy all or most of our Islamic audiobooks through the following methods:
- Use Mozilla Firefox, an open source, privacy-respecting browser which is kept up-to-date even on old devices.
- Subscribe to our YouTube channel which has most of our audiobooks.
- Use the apps of our distribution partners such as Google Play Books, Apple Books, Kobo, Nook, Scribd, Audible, etc. on which our audiobooks should be available. These exclude audiobooks distributed/hosted by Islamic Audiobooks Central which were not published by us.
