Re: Questions about starting a project (split from another thread)

Re: Questions about starting a project (split from another thread)

Hi Tricia and Kara, or anyone else who sees this. I'm still planning a Chaucer project (see the earlier messages in this thread), but I'm not sure what to think about the copyright issues. The problem is that the old public domain editions of Chaucer are not very good and include a lot of textual er...

Re: Questions about starting a project (split from another thread)

Thank you very much, Tricia and Kara. :clap: I'll set up a small solo collection once I've wrapped up my current Librivox projects and given myself a little more time to practice. Meanwhile, anyone who's interested can hear some Middle English here: https://alanbaragona.wordpress.com/the-criyng-and-...

Re: Questions about starting a project (split from another thread)

Thanks for that detailed and very helpful response, Tricia! :D I think I'll do each individual poem or excerpt as a separate work. I guess the ones that are more than 72 minutes long or are broken up into more than one section will have to be treated as long solo projects with their own separate thr...

Questions about starting a project (split from another thread)

I wonder if whoever is keeping an eye on this forum might have the time to advise me on a project I have in mind. I'd like to do some short Chaucer poems and excerpts from his longer poems, all in Middle English with the original pronunciation. I have a Gutenberg link for the complete works: http://...

Re: [ghost stories] Ancient Tales and Folklore of Japan by RG Smith -ck

Thanks very much for the helpful comments, advice, and encouragement, Angelique! I'm not using hard copy -- don't know what I was shuffling papers for. :? Thank you for catching it! I found this guide to Japanese pronunciation useful: http://iprc.soest.hawaii.edu/users/furue/jp-pron.html But I think...

Re: [ghost stories] Ancient Tales and Folklore of Japan by RG Smith -ck

Thank you, Angelique! I've now used Normalize in Audacity to fix the problem. I had used Checker before sending the file the first time, but after seeing the word "Passed," I hadn't tried to interpret the specific values. Now I know to keep an eye on the DC bias, and I've changed the Checker validat...
