Before you start to use this software, there is background knowledge that you should know. You can’t convert .aa or .aax file directly with some format convert software since the file is protected. So you need to either record the Audible content as MP3 file.

  2. I’ve used it for over a year. A 10 hour book would take about 6 hours to convert. I tried AAx to MP3 an 12 hour book took less than 13 minutes.
