Re: Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, Vol 2 Songling Pu

My section is here: https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/strangestories2_001_pu_128kbps.mp3 It seems that my contribution is the last. Apologies for being tardy with this - I promise to be prompter and more efficient in the future. I am still a relative newbie here so I hope my recording is technic...

I'm new-ish to Librivox, having previously read just a couple of the weekly poems. Did I exceed a dea...

Re: [Weekly Poem] To His Coy Mistress_v2 by Andrew Marvell -

Here is mine, at 02:39 https://librivox.org/uploads/aradlaw/coymistress_marvell_njg_128kb.mp3 I made an executive decision to say "through" (which to me just sounds more natural) than "thorough" (which I think is technically correct). I may have got "winged" wrong though, missing the extra syllable ...

Help! I'm new!

Hello everyone, I hope you can help me. I want to make my first test recording and submit it. I have seen it suggested that a good place to start is "weekly poetry". Is this "weekly poetry" different to general requests for poems and short works to be read? Also, what about "fortnightly poetry", whi...

Re: New volunteer from London, UK.

Kathrine,

I have just encountered another difficulty.

When I click on the uploader link http://librivox.org/login/uploader it requests my username and password. If I enter these exactly as I do for this forum I get an incorrect login message.

Nick.

Re: New volunteer from London, UK.

Hello Kathrine, thanks for your reply. My next step is, I think, to make a 1-minute test recording, so I might be asking for some advice pretty soon!
