Create audio content with speed and ease using DeepZen’s digital voice solutions.
Welcome to DeepZen’s Publisher Portal
DeepZen’s publisher portal enables you to conveniently manage all your audiobook projects in one place, quickly and cost-effectively. We offer a range of service options depending on your needs and budget.
We recommend the managed service for fiction titles. This is an end to end service which includes a pronunciation check, proofing review by DZ editors, customer quality review and 2 corrections stages, post-processing and mastering ready for distribution. The turn-around for this service is 1 to 2 weeks. The cost per finished hour is $129.00/ £99.00.
The automated service is more appropriate for non-fiction genres. After you’ve uploaded your ePub, we provide a full pronunciation check, make any necessary pronunciation corrections and then convert your ePub into audio. We post-process and master your audiobook to industry standard specifications so the title is ready for distribution. The cost is $69.00/ £49.00 per finished hour and we deliver files within 3 to 5 days.
