Reading listeners : listening readers. A qualitative study of users of audio books (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate peoples experience when listening at audio books. During recent years the use of audio books has increased significantly. With that knowledge and the fact that this is an almost unexplored area within Library- and Information science our interest grew even stronger. The thesis is based on two different theories. To be able to place audio books in a context we have applied a media- consumption perspective by asking questions like when, where and how the media-consumption takes place. When analysing peoples experiences from the content of audio books we used Sten Furhammar’s model of reading. The question posed in this study is: What experience can audio books give to our respondents? We limited the examination by only including adult audio book listeners. To answer the question we interviewed audio book borrowers at a public library. The results of the examination shows that people often prefer to listen to audio books while doing something else. Some are using it because they have a dysfunction e.g. reduced sight. The audio book can give relaxation, help endure monotonous work or simply be used for amusement. For some it is even enriching and developing. We also concluded that the audio book listener confronts more choices than a reader of a written text does. An audio book user must not only find a technique that suites them and the situation but also find a narrator that attracts them.
