Re: Alphabetized list of books?

I am used to hard copies, and yet, at the end of the day, a search engine and a page (or pages) full of clickable links on my screen beats hard copies hands down. Of course, I can't always scribble on those pages, or highlight pieces I like... And sharing them with somebody in a park doesn't always ...

Re: How many hours' worth of recorded material do I have at Librivox?

It's kinda funny, but I can't help thinking of more efficient (lazy) ways of doing it. For instance, if you have your mp3s someplace, then using Windows Media Player you can add them to a playlist, and it will count the running length for you, I believe. I bet that on MacOS there is a similar way...

Re: How many hours' worth of recorded material do I have at Librivox?

No, don't delete it. What if somebody figures out (and implements) an easy way for a member to put their name and get back the number with some other statistics? Perhaps this thread is where they'd brag of its availability... We have catalogue API, it gives back text information that can be parsed, ...

Re: Feedback from listeners

I don't know how to report but my audio books haven't had any new feedback for over a year. Is there a tech hitch. " New feedback"? Have they got any ? Then you're in the rare elite group. Let's hope that this necessity to stay at home will get more folks downloading and maybe even listening to our...

Re: Haven't recorded in a while....

I haven't used WavePad, but have used Audacity (and even use it still sometimes). What exactly can't you seem to figure out? Where is the stumbling point?

Re: changing volume

Start Audacity. Open the file where your recording is. Select the entire track (Ctrl+A). Go "Effect -> Amplify", enter the difference (8) into the "value", press OK. Save (Ctrl+S), then export like you did before. Also, read our wiki pages (the link is at the top of every forum page). There is more ...

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

I would still try other ways. Try saving it as something else (letting it making a copy), try exporting every format available to you (like WAV, for instance, that doesn't need compression). If you make a copy of that AUP and the corresponding folder, zip it up, then we could try doing what you need...

Re: French reader ready

Welcome, Jil!

It is good to have you here.

The next step for you is to submit your 1-minute test. Then, when it's approved, join a project that you like. If you prefer reading in French, your first choice might be the current multi-lingual short works collection... :)

Re: Volume Discrepancy - help please

It might be, and you probably want to look around your operating system's sound settings to see if you can trick it to yield to your control instead of taking over (if that's the case). On Windows, start settings, type "sound" into the search window, select "sound settings". On the right-hand side, ...

Re: Volume Discrepancy - help please

Two thoughts. First, Peter, it's a mic/interface in one, so if Valentina changes one, the other will have to be different as well. Also, because of that, it is likely due to some kind of "auto-level" or "auto-gain" or something like that; the driver adjusts the output according to its own "idea" of ...

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

Hello, Didn't read entire thread but searched through it-- I have an Audacity project (non-LV related; just cleaning up some old cassettes)- and when I try to export to MP3, Audacity starts to save it but then just quits, shuts down entirely. This doesn't happen with any other files, just this one....

I remembered, and I don't have anything material to add. Your setup seems to work fine. Thank you for sharing!
