How To Download A Related PDF On Audible

Hey, there!

Audiobooks are aural beasts. Some of the things you read on paper don’t make sense when you’re listening.

Like “the photo below…” or “like the drawing on page 73…” or “Look at the chart above…”

But…did you know that if an audiobook’s content would be a little more clear to the listener if they could see the photo, the drawing or the chart, the audiobook publisher can create what Audible calls a “related PDF” (it used to be called a “companion PDF”) that you can download right along with the audiobook itself?


And if they did, here’s how to download that PDF.

The button to download the related PDF (for any audiobook that has one) is displayed in the entry for the book in your Library on Audible. Log in at Audible.com, and go here (or just drop down the Library menu to My Books):


There, search for the audiobook in your Library for which you want to find the related PDF.

In the case of one of my audiobooks, Secrets of Screen Acting, the entry will look like this on Audible.com:

Roll your mouse over the entry, and an Expand button will appear:

Click on Expand, and you’ll see a set of buttons on the right hand side of the entry. One of them is Download Related PDF.

Click on that button, and your related PDF will be displayed, and you can then download the file with your browser’s download function.

Not all books have a related PDF (if not, there won’t be a Download Related PDF button), but that’s how to find it for the ones that do.

Hope that helps!

    Is this is something that the publisher has to create and not the narrator?
    When there are photos or references made to charts or drawing in a manuscript, do I create this PDF or should I tell the publisher about this option?

      As a student in my ACX Master Class, all will be revealed in Week 5. The short answer is either can create it, but only the RH can submit it to ACX.
