Is it true Amazon would not accept AI voiceover audio books?

I think it's fine for less than 60 seconds, but anything longer and it becomes less natural. Not even uncanny valley less natural either.

If I paid for an audio book with that vo, I'd demand a refund and wouldn't buy from that author again. I might not be able to identify it as text to voice, but it would definitely cause me to stop listening.

Yes.  re: ACX/Audible

"Your submitted audiobook must be narrated by a human.
Text-to-speech recordings are not allowed. Audible listeners choose audiobooks for the performance of the material, as well as the story. To meet that expectation, your audiobook must be recorded by a human."

I know, because I read this yesterday.  :)

Cheers,
R.C.
