Re: How to record without a pc

Twisted Wave is a recording/editing app for iOS that should do the job. I tested it a little bit and it seems to work ok. You can't adjust the input volume on an iPhone (you can on an iPad) due to some kind of... something. I asked the Twisted Wave tech support people about i and they explained and ...

Re: How much do you need to know the work?

Not to beat a dead horse, here, but I just thought of something. Someone who reads a print book (or sees a play) doesn't know what happens next, doesn't know character motivations, story arcs, etc., -- the reader learns these things as the story unfolds and manages just fine -- so does it matter if ...

Re: How much do you need to know the work?

I read without prep. Always. No matter what. I enjoy the surprise of finding out what I will say next while I'm recording.

(Also I get bored easily :wink: )

Re: constant repetition of public domain message

One of the newbies I whose forum account I recently activated said she discovered us because the narrator of the book she was listening to invited her to join us at the beginning of every chapter. What a lovely way to think about it!

When I record, I always have the first post up on my computer so I can read it exactly as the BC said to read it so as to get it right.
Me too, and I've been doing this since 2005 :lol:

Chapter 5 notes:

At 1:24, the text has "the bent and venerable Major and Mrs. Ward; lawyer Riverson,". Reading has mayor instead of Major. (Tom's town wasn't big enough to have two mayors.)
Oops! Good catch. Fixed:

Re: GROUP: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain - philc

Hey would you change the link to the text to be the main page for that book? It's kinda irritating to be sent to the html version if a reader wants plaintext or kindle. And the database should have the main page listed, not the html page. This is the correct url: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/74 T...
