Chapter and breaks for audio book

I am creating an audio book. I have all the tracks voiced. However, before laying them down, I am wondering how to separate them so if someone is listening to it, they can pick up at various points, either at a Chapter or in parts within the chapter - I could create bookmarks or sub-chapters. Similar to how you might see a book on cd look, where you can choose a section you last left off at.

 

I downloaded an audiobook once where there was no markers for where a person could pick up from, it was an awful way to experience an audio book.

Audiobooks that you can navigate require specialist software designed to do the job - 'normal' audio files don't have options like that at all. Yes, you can put markers into wav files in Audition, but those are essentially in a proprietary format (although a few other apps can read them as well), so you'd be very limited in what you can use to play them back and also navigate through them.

 

There are a couple of recommended formats for audiobooks - M4A and M4B. Most people use ACX to create the actual book from your files, but if you don't want to go down that route, look at AudFree which claims that it can convert whatever you've got to a suitable format. It's really a whole separate topic, the business of creating audiobooks, and there are loads of videos, etc about it - just google 'audiobook creation' or something like that, and you'll find it all.
