Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/pretty_angry.mp3 Bev, have at it. :) When I look at the waves and can't distinguish the sound from the words, I pretty much give up. I was just wondering what others do. Nan I played around with your file (I use the same technique as Phil) and I agree with Tricia....

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

You can upload the sample to the test folder and post the link here. I'm curious to hear it as I often fix small noises as you describe in my files. I take it as a challenge and spend way too much time on it. :P

Re: SOLO The Story of a Plush Bear by Laura Lee Hope - darv

You're welcome! Initially we need the link to confirm public domain status. But the text link is listed on our catalogue page and a lot of listeners like to read along. I usually download the epub to my android device or my e-reader and read it from there. I'll move us to Going Solo now that we're f...

Re: ~SOLO The Story of a Plush Bear by Laura Lee Hope - darv

We have a palindrome for a project number! :) I changed the text link to the introductory page of the book instead of the html page in gutenberg so that people can choose which format they prefer. Larry has been added as DPL. Thank you, Larry. If I've missed anything or you have any questions, pleas...

Re: Golden Name Day - test minute for review

Monika is correct. You have the proof to submit to gutenberg.org to get their clearance. We aren't disputing your facts. But the problem for Librivox is that you have the proof, we don't. If somebody questions our cataloguing of a certain item, we need proof-positive to point them to. For Librivox, ...

Re: Need recording advice from seasoned readers

Put me down for a 10:1 editing time:finished length. I wish I could get it down to 4 or 5! :)

And yes, that's finished length. Recording time is 3 times as long as finished length due to deliberate repeats and pauses to be edited out later.

Re: [solo] Bunker Bean by Harry Leon Wilson - darv

Joseph, Good start! :) As a soloist you are your own BC (Book Coordinator). It is your responsibility to fill in and maintain the MW. I see that you have done it before with your Winston Churchill project. Everything should work the same but if you have any problems or questions please post them her...
