Hi Mark and Michael, section 11 is ready: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/poems_11_venevitinov_128kb.mp3 03:40 Hi, Lena. Section 13 is PL OK!

Re: [SOLO/RUSSIAN] Вехи. Сборник статей о русской интеллигенции (Vekhi)-mas

Thank you, Mark! This is perfect.

Насчет "учителями" я был не уверен, и прочел так, как было указано в орфоэпическом словаре Гридиной и др., который только что купил в электронном виде на Google Books. Очень полезная книжечка. С остальными замечаниями согласен. Section 2 is ready for spot PL.

Re: Tagore's Kabuliwala in Hindi

Can an audio version of this Kabuliwala (Hindi translation) be done? https://archive.org/details/Kabuliwala-Hindi-RabindranathTagore/page/n5/mode/2up As schrm explained above, we generally can't use texts published less than 95 years ago (after 1924) due to public domain rules. Earlier publications...

non, on n'entend rien de distrayant. J'adore ce poème et ta façon de le réciter est exceptionnelle :9: J'ai l'impression que les vers me pénètrent comme la pluie ou le brouillard, c'est un très bel effet.
Merci, Sonia ! Je suis ravi d'avoir pu rendre service à ce beau poème. :9:

Great progress! Mark, could you post short acknowledgement messages like "thanks" for new recordings? I don't want to jump ahead of you and start PLing before a recording is queued for PL in the MW, so it would help to get a separate notification when that happens. Thanks! :)

Bonsoir, Sonia. Voici la section 30:

On a eu, nous aussi, de la pluie et de la pluie ce soir, et pas mal de tonnerre, mais je ne crois pas qu'on peut l'entendre sur l'enregistrement.

Re: Is a 19th Century facsimile in the PD?

The 1862 edition is also available through Google Books for free download:

I'm not sure if it's accessible outside the US. Let me know if you'd like me to send you the PDF.

Re: [OPEN][History]World's Story 12: The United States - kit

As someone who also needs to get to reading his claims, I feel compelled to put in a word. :) I think the broader question is whether we should follow capitalization "rules" (perhaps guidelines would be a better word) that reflect current practice or those from our sources, which mostly belong to th...

Re: [ITALIAN / Science] Dialogo dei massimi sistemi by Galilei - availle

Thanks for the close listen Pier! I'm happy to hear that. :9: Sure, since it looks like word-perfect PL notes may be manageable in size even for my reading, I'd like to know about such minor discrepancies, and if I decide to leave some of them unchanged, I'll let you know which ones. It will be a fu...

I was going to ask Pier for feedback on the first page of my section via PM, but then I thought it might be better to post it here, so other non-Italian readers who might come by, could see that I've asked for constructive criticism of my pronunciation from the start and not be taken aback by future...

Re: Hello from Dallas

Hello, DeBug and welcome to LibriVox! I see that you got a PL OK on your first recording from the first try, and that's faster progress than most of us were able to manage when we began here! :thumbs: I look forward to being soothed by your readings. :D
