Using the program for the first time, I immediately noticed that UkeySoft Audible Converter prides itself on offering a speed that is three times higher than those provided by similar products. Even when converting large AAX files to MP3, it works 700 times faster thanks to unique operation technology.

Divide the file according to your preferences – by chapters, parts, or time – and enjoy listening to these fragments in sequential order.
