Audiobook Calculator – Estimate Listening Time

This tool helps you estimate the total listening time for your audiobook based on the number of words and your chosen narration speed.

How to Use the Audiobook Calculator

This calculator helps you estimate how many days it will take to complete an audiobook based on your input parameters.

Steps to Use:

  1. Enter the total number of words in the audiobook.
  2. Enter the narration speed in words per minute (wpm).
  3. Enter the number of minutes you plan to listen each day.
  4. Click on the “Calculate” button to see the result.

How It Calculates the Results:

The calculator computes the total listening time by dividing the total words in the book by the narration speed:

Total Minutes = Total Words / Narration Speed

It then estimates the number of days required to finish the book by dividing the total minutes by the daily listening time:

Total Days = Total Minutes / Minutes Per Day


This calculator provides an estimate based on average reading speeds and daily listening times. Actual times may vary based on factors such as individual narration speed variation, pauses, and changes in daily listening habits.
