I listen to a decent amount of audiobooks and I’ll occasionally miss a one-off description of something important. I was wondering if there are projects to add a visual component to audiobooks? Official or fan-made it doesn’t matter. If it does exist what would I search for to find something like this?

Maybe a video with AI generated images and the listener is required to supply their own audiobook or something like that.

I feel like I have seen this done with the Bible several times.

Edit: It seems like the answer is no.

People have suggested movies, VNs, and point and click games but that’s more than what I am after. All I really want is something that accompanies the audio that can occasionally act as a quick reference. If you are still have trouble imagining what I am talking about think of an audio-only podcast that is uploaded to Youtube. They might add a photo in post to accompany what they are talking about but you can still enjoy it without the visual aspect.

I thought there might be a group of people on Youtube doing this with AI images or an audiobook publisher commissioning art to do this.

    I’m imagining a picture just pops up occasionally to help with visual. Whenever a new important character is introduced, whenever you arrive to a new place that has descriptions. If an important devise is introduced, it would really depend on the book but ideally you would only glance like once every couple dozen minutes if you wanted to. I already open a tab and Google to see what’s people interpretations are of stuff. This would just make it easier.

      That’s exactly it. I was reading At the Mountains of Madness for example and because the Elder Things were such odd creatures I had to look up a photo to put it all together.
