Amazon and the publishers objecting to its new Audible Captions feature have reached a settlement in their copyright-infringement argument.

The Digital Reader, citing a letter that Publishers Weekly shared, says the parties have asked a judge to let them submit settlement documents to the court by January 21.

So we don’t know what conclusion they came to over whether Audible Captions was in fact infringing on copyrights, but we should learn shortly.

Audible Captions was put on hold after Simon & Schuster, the Association of American Publishers, the Authors Guild, and other industry heavyweights objected to it.

The feature displays up to twenty words of an audiobook's text on a device screen, only while the audiobook is being played.
