Re: One Minute Test

Hi Crafty! Welcome to Librivox! That is great you are bilingual - I could not hear very much of an accent in your reading at all! That said I live in a very Asian oriented city and I am used to hearing an Asian accent :) Your actual recording was very good. The fact that you also explored Amplify al...

Re: One Minute Test OK

Hi Caspian! Welcome to Librivox! That is a great recording you did and as you know, it passed the Checker so you are ready to record for Librivox! Just a quick tip to answer your concern about being at the max for your mic and possibly being at the max for Amplify too - I often run into that also an...

Re: One minute test-advice welcome

Hi Takaeha - Your recording is actually very good - you have an excellent voice with great enunciation! I do not think your s sounds are that bad at all! As you thought though there are some technical issues with the recording which are fairly simple to fix. First, the recording has some background ...

Re: 1 Minute Test-Please advise OK

Very good Lauren! You passed! Yeah! :clap: The only small thing I would warn you of as you go on now to record for Librivox is to watch your P's. They are getting more explosive now that the recording is louder (or I just noticed them now that the recording is louder - not sure which!) This can be s...

Re: 1 Minute Test-Please advise

Hi Lauren! Welcome to Librivox! I am glad you came along to join us! You were right, your recording is a bit on the low volume side but that is very easy to fix. There are also 2 other technical issues which need to be fixed at the same time which are very easy to do too! First, we need to amplify y...

Re: One Minute Test OK

Hi Weaver of Tales! That recording passed! Yahoo! You are now free to go ahead and browse the vast forums of Librivox and pick sections from books to record! I just have one little note for you as in a test environment it is hard to judge this so I am just passing it on - when you go out to record f...

Re: [MANNERS] Marion Harland's Complete Etiquette -ck

Hi Gloria - The following are what Google Translate indicates are the correct pronunciation in English and differ from your pronunciation - 5:28 - Canapé - Say Canada, now say the beginning - "Cana" and add "PAY". I heard Can APE. 6:48 - Chutney - Say CHUT (like Shut but with a CH sound) then "ney" ...

Re: [MANNERS] Marion Harland's Complete Etiquette -ck

Hi Gloria - I seemed to have lost my notes from when I compared your recording of the words to Google Translate. If you will give me a couple of hours this morning (as I am a few time zones behind you :) ) to refresh my memory of which words I found differently pronounced from Google Translate I wil...

Almost all settings are correct except two small things which are your volume and background noise. At Librivox we need to record between a target range of (86–92 dB) and this reco...
