I leave my response though as the same thing is happening in it) - I guess I am stuck in a particular style working on one book. ____...

Re: Copyright Issues - Can I Narrate This Book?

Not at all. I can sense your just trying to help. My dyslexia is getting worse. I'll tell you guys what. You have my one minute test. If you like what you hear (and think I have potential) feel free to PM me. This past time was meant to be something I could use to assist my dyslexia. I also have got...

Re: Copyright Issues - Can I Narrate This Book?

Thus far I have had no response to my 1-minute test. I appreciate it takes time, but given the issue of copyright laws being different 'in Australia' having 1st been brought to my attention - I feel compelled to ask: ... is there an admin of LibriVOX or someone with an authority, that could let me k...

Copyright Issues - Can I Narrate This Book?

It's been brought to my attention because I live in Australia, that I may not be able to read the following book. Within You Is the Power (First Published - by Henry Thomas Hamblin - (19 March 1873 – 28 October 1958) I first found it here: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/search/?query=within+you+is...

Re: Am I up to standard?

Hi there LJB I used to own the Blue Yeti when I first tried my hand at this a few years ago. I know well what you mean about it's sensitivity. After researching many hours today and yesterday I am now in two minds about which mic I will get. Despite finding a very negative YouTube Review who complet...

Re: Am I up to standard?

I'll work on that microphone placement and use the one minute test to get things just right. I'm looking to get myself a USB Blue Yeti microphone in about 4 weeks time. For now I am just practicing my technique and still deciding on the best place to do my recordings as I have others in the house I ...

Am I up to standard?

I note the post entitled 'What if I Suck?' I'm glad I am not the only one that is worried about such a thing. I've heard some pretty talented narrators on librivox and it makes me wonder if i will be up to the task. I would really appreciate if anyone would be kind enough to check my 'sound cloud li...

Narration (parentheses?) To Speak or Not to Speak?

As a newbie, I am still struggling with how to handle parentheses? I am reading non fiction and whilst there is still expression within the text, I often come by a lot of parentheses words and phrases. Sometimes I think it's best to leave them out or at the very least, speak the parentheses words an...

Re: Seeking Help to Find Spiritual Books

Helena Blavotsky took much a similar approach in her belief that All religions were but a shadow of a greater spirituality. Though liked by some and disdained by many, I think her work might be the sort of thing you are looking for. In particular, her 4 volume work "The secret doctrine" which is av...

Re: Back Again - I'm keen - but still going to need help.

Thanks Tovarisch, 1. I'll go over the recommended protocols for recording once more. I found that very helpful last time. I have a good enough mic and setup to record with for now. 2. Thus far I have picked a book from the public Domain that is of interest for me. Non-Fiction Spiritual Book. 3. I ha...
