I don't know if this is the best forum for this, but here goes: I am looking for an audiobook of the Old Testament, Catholic translation of course.  The Ignatius translation (RSV-Catholic edition) is available only in the New Testament, and the only other full audiobook available is the New American Bible (not my first choice).  Any suggestions or recommendations for a full Catholic Bible, or at least Old Testament, on audiobook?   
I see over 20 views to this post and not one reply with recommendations -- not encouraging!  Do I interpret this silence to mean that there are no good, traditional Catholic Bible audiobooks out there? 
I can't think of any which feature the DR, but found this. Hope it helps... if anybody knows of a DR audiobook, I'd be interested.
Try this (look for Douay-Rheims Complete Audio Bible):

Thanks QVP! Pity it's only on cassette though.
I don't know about this site, but "speaking bibles" seem to be interesting:

Thank you, Quo Vadis Petre, for pointing me in the right direction. (Yes, I am one of the few folks who still owns an audiocassette player.) I was hoping there existed either the Ignatius or Jerusalem Bible in audio format, but I never held out hope for the Douay-Rheims. Much appreciated. I have ordered and will see soon enough, or rather I should say hear.

Thank you, Evey -- I was aware of the New American Bible CD recording but, like you apparently, was hoping for something more along the lines of the Douay-Rheims.  Fortunately Quo Vadis Petre came to the rescue for both of us.

For those computer savvy, you can set up your computer to record digitally casette recordings with either Nero or freeware digital audio editors/recorders like Audacity.

I'm not that good with computers but thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I'll give it a go... and if all else fails, take the cassettes into our AV dept and cross my fingers.
