Northwest Novels Audiobooks (TTS)

Post by sicsemper »

Hi all,

I've made a project of producing a text-to-speech audiobook of "The Brigade" and uploading it to Bitchute here: https://www.bitchute.com/playlist/hB1vvYSFVXaZ/
It's no substitute for a human read audiobook, but perhaps it will do until someone with expertise tackles that project. TTS is also easier to listen to at higher speed, if you like to do that.

I'm planning to do all five novels in this way.

Thanks! And welcome!

One of us had tried something similar, but he wasn't able to get a result he liked and it took too much editing to produce anything truly listen-able. The raw results were somewhat comparable to what you have produced.

Have we corresponded in the past? How did you become a White Nationalist? How did you find the Party? Have you been sent any introductory material?

Thanks and take care.

Yes we've corresponded, I've posted a constitutional question I've had before.

I don't think I've ever not been a white nationalist since I've been politically aware. It was always taught to me by my family that there are inherent differences between the races and that communism is evil. I attended a senior military college where my buddies and I engaged in a lot of political discussion, especially questioning the official historical narratives. Recognizing a government lie naturally leads to the question of why our trusted rulers need to lie, which leads to introspection on the proper functioning of government and what constitutes a nation. Between the options of globalism, "civic" nationalism, and true nationalism, the obvious answer is nationalism. I'm white, so I'm a white nationalist. I wish for every ethnic group to have the same right of self determination.
I don't think that testimony is very exciting and I don't think WN is radical.

I probably was pointed towards the NF on an imageboard. I haven't been sent anything, is there anything I need? I prefer electronic copies of books if that's what it is.

I've done the same now for "A Distant Thunder", here:
https://www.bitchute.com/playlist/mhAeaAzueEd5/

I've also uploaded the mp3 files for both of these to archive.org, where it's easier to download.
The Brigade:

A Distant Thunder:

I've listened to all of "The Brigade" this way and found it very pleasant. You forget about the robotic cadence of the voice pretty quickly, especially since the story is so thrilling. I hope someone else finds these useful.

There are free alternatives to get a book converted to audiobook that is read by a live man or woman. Find and reach out to a blind person, and sign them up for the free program at the closest "library for the blind". They can then submit the books to be read, as long as the one submitting them is actually blind and has a library card. The books are read by volunteers, mostly retired people, and the quality is usually pretty good. Submitted several books for a blind lady I used to read to, but only one that came back was "Comrades" by Thomas Dixon, Jr. . Amazing how prophetic that book turned out to be.

Of course, alternative is to find retired teachers, speakers or generally retired people to volunteer to read them because they think it is a good idea to make these works more available as audiobooks. Even if they aren't done as professional as a commercial audiobook, it is way better than A.I. computer generated ones from text.
