Detailed description


As a reading supervisor / coach-in-training you will listen to voices from readers together with a professional coach. After you have been trained, you know what is involved when reading an audio book. You can select voices that are suitable for reading an audiobook. You are going to teach new young readers what you have learned and guide them through the recording. How do you make an audiobook with two main characters? How do you read a drawing? Every new reader will receive a general education that they will follow together with you and a coach. Of course you can think along about the content of this course.


You will start work on Saturday at our location in Rijswijk. We expect that you will be present for at least one day (in the morning from 10 a.m. to 1.15 p.m. or afternoon from 1 p.m. to 4.45 p.m.) to guide the readers.


• You are 17-30 years old.

• You are available for at least one part of the day (morning or afternoon) for 16 weeks.

• You enjoy teaching and guiding others.

• You can think creatively about how you could articulate images in books, for example.

• You have a good ear for a nice voice.


• You learn how an audio book is made.

• You will learn how to recognize good voices and what to look out for.

• You learn what a voice audit involves.

• You learn how to train and guide readers.

• You learn how to write an evaluation report.

• You learn to assess audio quality.

• You work together with coaches, audio engineers and reading heroes.

• You will receive a recognized certificate on request if you work for at least 50 hours.

• You receive a travel allowance if you do not have any public transport students.

• And of course the nice feeling that because of your effort someone with a visual or other reading disability can simply enjoy a book.

About Stichting Dedicon
Bij Dedicon vinden we dat iedereen mee moet kunnen doen in onze maatschappij, ook als je blind of slechtziend bent of een andere leesbeperking hebt. Vanuit die overtuiging maken we romans, schoolboeken, kranten, tijdschriften, afbeeldingen toegankelijk. Door ze bijvoorbeeld voor te lezen of in braille om te zetten. Of door er voelbare tekeningen van te maken.

Zo hebben we in 2018 2.523 edities van allerlei kranten en tijdschriften voorgelezen. En ook nog eens meer dan 2.300 romans en schoolboeken tot audioboek gemaakt! Daarnaast maken we ook hele andere bijzondere dingen. Zoals de eerste Donald Duck voor blinde kinderen en voelbare plattegronden van de Noord/Zuidlijn in Amsterdam.

Je snapt, dat kunnen we niet alleen. Daarom zijn we op zoek naar jou: voorleeshelden met een jonge stem waar jongeren met een leesbeperking graag naar luisteren. Ben jij tussen de 17 en 30 jaar en wil jij één van de ruim 300 ‘Onzichtbare helden’ worden? Kijk dan hier bij onze vacatures voor één van onze vrijwillige heldenfuncties.

Val je niet binnen deze leeftijdscategorie, maar wil je toch helpen? Kijk dan op voor de mogelijkheden.
