What if you could hear the books narrated by the voices of actors who are no

Hearing Sir Laurence Olivier's voice in business meetings may not give you the same thrill as watching the acclaimed English actor on stage or screen, but it can make it more interesting.

That's the vision of artificial intelligence startup ElevenLabs, which this week announced that fans of Hollywood icons like Judy Garland and James Dean can now be heard reading books, articles or other digital texts.

The company said it had reached agreements with Olivier, Garland, Dean and Burt Reynolds to add their voices to a library of AI-generated audio in ElevenLab's new Reader app. The product allows users to listen to the text on the phone, with the actors' voices available for individual streaming.
