Audiobook Speed Calculator

The “Audiobook Speed Calculator” is a user-friendly tool designed to help you determine the total playing time of an audiobook based on the desired playback speed. With this calculator, you can input the duration of the audiobook and specify the playback speed, and it will automatically calculate the adjusted total time.

How To Calculate Audiobook Speed

To calculate the audiobook speed, you need to know the total duration of the audiobook and the desired playback speed. Follow these steps to calculate it:

  1. Obtain the total duration of the audiobook:
    • Convert the hours, minutes, and seconds of the audiobook duration into seconds.
    • For example, if the duration is 2 hours, 30 minutes, and 45 seconds, the total duration in seconds would be (2 * 3600) + (30 * 60) + 45 = 9045 seconds.
  2. Determine the desired playback speed:
    • The playback speed represents how fast or slow the audiobook will be played. It is usually expressed as a decimal value.
    • For example, a playback speed of 1.25 means playing the audiobook 25% faster than the original speed.
  3. Calculate the total time at the desired playback speed:
    • Divide the total duration of the audiobook (in seconds) by the playback speed.
    • For example, if the total duration is 9045 seconds and the playback speed is 1.25, the calculated total time would be 9045 / 1.25 = 7236 seconds.
  4. Convert the calculated total time back into hours, minutes, and seconds if needed:
    • If you want the result in the format of hours, minutes, and seconds, convert the calculated total time back into that format.
    • For example, if the calculated total time is 7236 seconds, it would be equivalent to 2 hours, 0 minutes, and 36 seconds.

That’s how you can calculate the audiobook speed. Using the “Audiobook Speed Calculator” tool provided earlier will automate these calculations for you based on the input values you provide.
