We can use any audio recorder that can record audio streams of the computer. In this tip, we use Moo0 Voice Recorder because the program works perfectly for this purpose and is easy to use.
Once we get the two apps installed, we can now open them at the same time. We start the recording with Moo0 Voice Recorder first.
Make sure that MP3 format is select as output format of the recording.
As soon as the recording starts, we can start playing the Audibooks with Audible for PC app. Let the recorder and the Audible player still the playback ends. You can also click Stop! button to stop the recording at any time you want.
This workaround is really easy and free but it would take you hours for recording long audiobooks.
