Re: [OPEN] Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz; translated by Helena Frank (1872-1954 - mas

That was a perfect and beautiful recording MaraBella! All you need to do now is trim the end to 5 seconds as all recordings need only 5 seconds at the end and then it will be PL OK. So please do that and re-post the link and time and I will check it and then mark it PL OK! What a long recording for...

Hi, thanks for all your hard work! Here's section 5, "Married": https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_05_peretz_128kb.mp3 50:23 (Note: There are 10 seconds of silence at the end because it's over 30 minutes. Let me know if you want me to cut it back to 5!) Edit: I had to fin...

Hi! Here's section 9. So sorry this took so long! I kept waiting for my allergies to clear up and then... life caught up with me. So I'm just embracing the nasality for now, to get these done! https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_09_peretz_128kb.mp3 32:27 I'll try to get se...

Re: [OPEN] Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz; translated by Helena Frank (1872-1954 - mas

Mara, If you include a footnote, the standard way to to that is as Elsie has indicated, say "footnote", read the footnote, and then say "end footnote." Do not add any translations of your own. If the footnote contains something that's in another language, either leave it out, or read it as is. We d...

I would just have you trust your judgement on what to include. If you want to, you can distinguish the footnotes from the text by saying “footnote” “end footnote”.
Awesome! I will do that - distinguishing that way is brilliant.

Thanks!

Hi, Elsie and MaryAnn! I have a question about footnotes. This work is full of them, and most of them are clarifications of cultural significance that can be inferred (for example - and you can click on the number to see the text they apply to - http://www.gutenberg.org/files/37242/37242-h/37242-h.h...

Re: [CHINA/LIT] The Dream of the Red Chamber II by Cao - availle

Ok, sorry this took so long! I had to redo a bunch because I recorded when I had a cold... and I think that threw the sound balance off :( but hopefully it will still be ok!

:D Thank you so much! (Definitely let me know if it ever gets distracting, though - I know what I like to listen to in audiobooks, but I truly have next to no idea what I'm doing from my end! :oops:) Speaking of not knowing how this all works, I'm not sure if I should just sign up to read from the s...

Re: [CHINA/LIT] The Dream of the Red Chamber II by Cao - availle

Thing is that it's hard enough to find readers, and the pronunciation guide is already MASSIVE. :shock: So I don't want to prescribe anything beyond the absolutely necessary. I'm sure most people who are unfamiliar with the names here would look them up somehow or make an educated guess... I just d...

Hello! Here is part 28. I was starting to get perfectionistic with it :oops: so lest I start rerecording the whole thing over again, let me just put this up here and see what the DPL has to tell me. :lol: ("Please do less character voices" is a completely acceptable required edit, btw. :oops:) https...

Re: One Minute Test

I didn't install the checker program! I will do that now, thank you. EDIT: Okay, I rerecorded, this time with no amplification, so it passed Checker (I didn't understand the dB thing before, haha!), and with more of the noise reduced. (I also tried reading with my head tilted upwards because my own ...
