Hi Christopher,

Currently in mainstream product data standards like ONIX for Books and DDex (for music recordings), audiobooks tend to be treated as a type of "book" product; although the overlap is pretty complete in this particular case.

In the case of ONIX for Books it's way easier to provide detailed information about the author of the underlying text than in other less book-specific schemas, for example, since an audiobook is normally basically a recording of a performance of a book, emphasis on "book".

I don't know how much work schema.org has done on this sort of overlap, but that's how it works in the industry.

Subject: Question concerning Audio Books

Hello, I am writing to ask if any of the current schemas support things such as audio books?

I am not sure if audio books count under the claim of Books, Music Recordings, etc, or if they are in need of their own, currently non-existing schema.

Any help on the matter would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Christopher Bright
