Re: ~[GROUP/MISC] The Anzac Book by various - tg

I'll have a go at reading section 4. Couple of questions - do I read the editor's note first then move onto the main text? Should I read all abbreviations as-are? (e.g. H.M./His Majesty, C-in-C/Commander in Chief) I'm guessing it's safer to keep abbreviations as-are just to avoid any possible mistak...

Re-uploaded a fixed file.

Surprisingly got away with just deleting the extra syllable I derped into "prevention"!

Re: [OPEN][Short stories]The Black Cat Vol. 01 No. 03 December 1895 - kit

Thanks for the feedback, feel a bit silly that I forgot to delete the repetition when I was editing the file! Should the disclaimer at the beginning be all of the following? "Section 5 of The Black Cat Vol. 01 No. 03 December 1895. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the pub...

Re: ~[GROUP/MISC] The Anzac Book by various - tg

Thank you both for the tips, I looked at the waveform zero align thing and it seems to work better than the trial and error I had going on before! The new clip length is 9:37. Can I take on sections 7 and 8? P.S. You have 8 as Untitled, but it has an almost illegible title of "Our Fathers" in the he...

Re: ~[GROUP/MISC] The Anzac Book by various - tg

Thanks, I did do one noise reduction pass (think I used default settings in Audacity's noise reduction except for raising sensitivity from 12 to 16). I have tried to clean it up a little more here, including the clicks, hopefully. One thing I've found is that sometimes deleting bits of audio introdu...

Re: ~[GROUP/MISC] The Anzac Book by various - tg

Wonderful to have you aboard. I will reserve Section 3 for you, but I must first ask about your display name. We have two names at LibriVox: the forum name and the display name. I use KevinS for both, but you can decide to use any name---including your real name---for our public catalog. Please let...

Hello from London, England

Hi, I'm a freelance translator from London and I joined with the intention of working up to reading a particular public domain book not already in the library.

In the meantime, I'll see if I can make a meaningful contribution with some short readings after getting test audio feedback.

Cheers :)
