Back in school, I was much better at reading out loud, teachers just always told me to slow down and put more color into my reading, as I sounded like a robot.
Wise teachers, Claudia! There you have the secret :wink:

Re: Making your reading sound Great

Hi lcastleb1

I've just checked the feedback you were given by Tony123 on 24th December.
Has something changed? If so, perhaps you would post another one minute test and explain your concerns.

Hi Vivian,

There are lots to choose from, and everyone will have their own favourite!
You might like to have a listen to the 'Microphone Showdown' recordings:

Re: ~[OPEN] Microphone Showdown 3 - RuthieG

Welcome Bubba,

Here's the link for your 'one minute test': viewforum.php?f=21

You'll receive lots of friendly advice there, but I will just say that I hope you'll learn to like the 'techy stuff' - it comes in very handy if
you want to record and edit! ;)

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

Does Audacity recognize your mic? It should show in the little box above. If not, go to
Control panel --> Hardware & Sound --> Manage Audio Devices --> Recording

Another hint - make sure you mic is plugged into computer before opening Audacity.

Hope this helps,

May I just add to gypsygirl's suggestion that your cursor needs to be in the centre of the red record bottom at the top first?

Re: Help us wish Bill a "Happy 102nd Birthday!

I read the article in full before posting. It appeared to be a fete accompli as there was no mention of an appeal.

Paragraph 7 begins 'Nelson's lawyer Randall Newman, who spoke to Ars Monday night shortly after the settlement was finalised, said ...'
That would have been 8th February 2016

Re: Librivox Shakespeare Podcast

Here I am :? At least, my recording is in Cori's folder, duration 2:22
Apologies for sounding like a reading rather than a conversation - I had a small window of time to record and edit, so both were a little rushed. Hope it's ok, but feel free to edit, discard, whatever.
