Oh, A Gentleman in Moscow is on my TBR pile -- I'll move it up to the top. Thanks for helping me prioritise, Mary! :D

Re: Reading sections of novels

Chiming in as a third 'jumper-in'. :D I always check the first post to see if there's a pronunciation guide, and if I'm an early volunteer in the project then I might ask in the thread too (especially if the author's name or hero/ine seem like they might have variants.) But I don't do more than that...

Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

You will probably be redirected to your 'local' Audible, so may need to choose the option to go on to the US, or else try opening the links in a different browser (or anonymous tab.) https://www.audible.com/pd/Classics/Black-Beauty-Audiobook/B078SJBV7X (me) (or on .uk - https://www.audible.co.uk/pd/...

Re: African American authors

I am new here and I am very found on history of slavery, there is a special author I am looking about her biography and books, is Octavia Butler, someone can suggest me one of her books? I'd highly recommend asking at your local library if they have Kindred . Many libraries use Overdrive, which giv...

Re: Request for more LGBT content

That's been brought up a few times, Tony -- so far, no-one's found a PD text for it. I've read it, but in a 'modern version' printing, not of any use here.

Re: Finnish Librivoxers

I wonder if your friend was thinking about recording books or newspapers for the blind? That can be quite niche and I can imagine those organisations might have professional requirements, even where it's a voluntary activity. As an 'organisation', LibriVox doesn't have those limitations. :D

Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

I s'pose another question is *exactly* what a Public Domain licence allows. I know it means people can sell the recording, edit it into their own music and videos, listen to it in any country where the death dates are legal ... but I'm not sure it means that someone can lie about who recorded it (co...

Re: Free plans for a drawing camera

It seems like it would help -- drawing is about choosing what to draw, in part, which would be an important aspect of this. There's also the basic confidence-building of being able to see how simple lines on a page combine into a picture/design. Helping people to see what IS there, rather than what ...

That looks like a fascinating project (not that I have the hardware skills/tools to make it work.)

Re: Newbie with a Question

Recording works okay I think, but editing is likely to be a pain. I've not looked for a couple of years though -- TwistedWave was the best option back then, but hopefully there are more choices now. Experiment! :D

Re: How many countries have you traveled to?

Hm, 11, I think ... Wales, Scotland, France, Greece, Denmark, Portugal, Netherlands, USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia. It's way past time I visited Ireland, and I'd also love to go to Vietnam and Morocco, though they're part of a much longer list, of course.
