Audiobooks are great for us when we find ourselves with moments where we're awake, but have other things to do with our hands. Listening to an audiobook is a great way to multitask during those times of the day and add a little culture to us.
Where do you get those audiobooks? From Audible.com? Since it is the biggest seller of spoken audio entertainment, information, and educational programming and owns the largest amount of digital audiobooks, including AA and AAX formats. But you should also be aware that the AA or AAX audiobooks are protected by Audible's DRM policy, which prevents you from transferring the audiobooks to other devices, though you are the owner of those audiobooks. So is there any way to get the DRM off from the AA audiobooks and convert them to regular formats, like MP3, AAC or WAV?
Well, yes, there are indeed such kind of software, usually called Audible Audiobook Converter or AA DRM remover, that can help you to remove Audible DRM protection and convert AA audiobook to plain MP3, AAC or other audio formats. Here you can get NoteBurner Audiobook Converter, one of the best audiobook DRM removal tool for Mac OS.
