How do I add a title that's an audiobook? IMDB Help says audiobooks are an eligible category for titles, but I'm unable to add one.

How do I add a title that's an audiobook? This IMDB Help page says audiobooks are an eligible category for titles

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/adding-a-new-title/GNXTSSVTJTFCRZGN?ref_=helpsrall#

That Help page shows "Eligible Title Types:" as:

Movies Podcasts (including radio shows released as a podcast)
TV / Streaming series Online videos
TV specials / Movies Video games
DVD / Blu-ray extras Sporting / award events
Documentaries Audiobooks
Commercials Music videos

so it should be possible to create a title for an audiobook. But when I go to this page to create a new title

https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/edit?update=title&ref_=helpms_ch_t_newtitle_ra

I have to select a "Type," and there is no "Type" for audiobook!

There are only six types with radio buttons to click on:

 

So even though it's theoretically possible to create a title for an audiobook, is it really impossible to do so?

I'm an award-winning author and I'm a full member of SFWA, with two audiobooks that have sold on Amazon, and I'd really like to get these audiobooks listed on IMDB.

You would have to select an existing category. This post suggests Video. Then you should probably add audiobook as a keyword.

@Peter_pbn​ Clunky, but probably will be a type of its own in the near future, as podcasts were upgraded to, recently.
