Re: ~GROUP Something Childish and Other Stories by Katherine Mansfield - ke

A couple of things to fix when you have time, please. I only ask for fixes of things that change the meaning of a sentence. at 2.30: "Oh, Heavens! Rosabel stirred suddenly and unfastened the two top buttons of her coat". It sounds more like you say 'fastened'. 7.10 "“I shall go straight home and pu...

Re: ~GROUP Something Childish and Other Stories by Katherine Mansfield - ke

I have finished Section 1 The Tiredness of Rosabel https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/somethingchildish_01_mansfield_128kb.mp3 13 minutes 28 seconds I think there's a bit of an echo but I honestly can't tell if I'm imagining it. Let me know if it should be fixed, I think I know what may have cau...

ps, Fractal, your display name was already in the system, so I assume another BC or admin already added it.
Ah, I wasn't sure if I would need to give my display name for each project.

Re: [OPEN] Short Science Fiction Collection 067-ag

It's taking longer than I expected. I've got to find a balance between perfectionist and shoddy, stutters and mis-speaks should always be repaired right? I am still fighting the urge to silence my breaths and adjust my pauses between phrases.

Re: [OPEN] Short Science Fiction Collection 067-ag

How do we read off chapter breaks in short stories? Just
"...and that was how this chapter ends

Chapter 2

This new chapter is way cool..."

There is no chapter title, I hadn't expected chapter breaks in a short story.

Re: Test From Phone

Oh heck, that looks like a great tool BUT it doesn't have a mobile app. No matter, I can just transfer any completed work over to my laptop and check it myself before any upload.

Re: Test From Phone

This is the same audiotrack, I used the app's tool to boost the audio what it said would be 6dB.

Test From Phone

I discovered an Audacity-like app for my phone and I was already using this Bluetooth headset as my computer's mic. I want to see if this works for my recordings because then I could record piecemeal whenever I have 5 minutes. It might be a bit quiet, I haven't found a decibel readout yet. This app ...

Re: How Faithful To The Text Are We?

Thanks, you both have really cleared this up for me. I forgot that we have everything proof listened to anyway so that makes me less nervous about my occasional unconscious modifying of a phrase.

Re: (Short Stories) Uncollected Short Stories of L.M. Montgomery by Lucy Maud Montgomery - m8b1

What kind of release does this eventually get? Is the collection waiting until all stories are completed and then they will be organized together or could I go ahead and send this link out?

Re: [OPEN] Short Science Fiction Collection 067-ag

I'm starting work on Genesis, by H. Beam Piper. Text here http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/18105/pg18105.txt

I'm about 5 minutes in so far but figured since I'm gonna take an extended break here I may as well claim the story up here.

How Faithful To The Text Are We?

I was wondering, as I did my recent read of The Chivers Light, do we 100% re-record any misspoken phrases so that what is recorded perfectly matches the text? I'm not suggesting that I am about to go artistic-license rewriting entire works, more the type of slip up I'm referring to could include thi...

Alright. File's up there.

I'm pretty sure this link is actually the same every time so long as the filename stays the same but... https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/uncollectedlmm_90_montgomery_128kb.mp3

Re: (Short Stories) Uncollected Short Stories of L.M. Montgomery by Lucy Maud Montgomery - m8b1

I made a last moment edit and deleted a second of silence at about 8 minutes. It will reduce the runtime to 11 and 25 but I'm not sure if there's something you do first before I should upload the file again.
