Audiobook to Text App

Everytime I am listening to a good audiobook I have a great need to be able to save parts of the text in a format that I can revisit easily.

An app that can connects to the audiobook apps (e.g. Audible) and can get transform part of the audio clip to text format.

Probably little. [Updated] "Audiobooks are the fastest growing segment in publishing and everyone within the industry is very bullish about the future of the format.  There are a number of new start-ups that are making waves and retailers are beginning to release that audiobooks are worth investing in. The global audiobook industry is currently evaluated at 2.8 billion dollars and this is primarily due to the sheer amount of new titles that were produced in 2015. 43,000 new audiobooks were released this year, which is a slight increase from the 36,000 that came out in 2014 and a far cry from the 20,000 that were issued in 2013." by Michael Kozlowski
