Re: Audiobooks outdo films in emotional engagement

No big surprise here either. In a book or even audiobook, you can use your own imagination to fit the characters, the setup, facial expressions... You still have to do some "work" to enjoy the story, definitely more so than with movies. I love Lord of the Rings, and the movies are great I think. Sti...

Here are my roles: The Girl of Act 1: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/signofthegreedypig_girl_1_128kb.mp3 And the voice in the Crowd from act 2.

I checked, you should be able to login to the Magic Window? Careful with the passwords - the MW requires an extra login/password for the "workflow", which you need to make first. It is (or: should be) different than the password for the forum. The uploader is a part of the "workflow", just like the ...

Re: ~ [PHILOSOPHY/JAPANESE] 悦ばしき知識 (Yorokobashiki Chishiki) by Nietzsche - ava

There is a lot of things LV can afford ;-) If you want to record in a second, third, fourth... language, the criterium is to "be understandable for a native speaker". That's all. I know many Japanese speaking English, and I understand them perfectly - no need to worry! Many people on LV record in se...

You can always ask for "constructive criticism" for your recordings which would include such things as you describe. Note that we don't have many people on here who speak Japanese. It will be difficult for you to find a proof listener (PL) who could give you such hints. I would suggest to read some ...
