Re: TEST The Old Woman by Joseph Campbell OK

Hi Nanbear! Welcome to Librivox! That is a very good recording! It passed all the technical things we look for and when I listened to it you have a very soothing voice! The only tiny piece of feedback is watch the time and the beginning of your recording - we allow a .5 to 1 second silence prior to ...

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

I did listen to Google Translate (which I find not the best in terms o...

Re: Please listen, 1 minute test

Hi Max! Well I have good news and bad news - The good news is it is a mono recording now! The bad news is that the noise level has risen.... If you look at the recording in the Audacity window you can see instead of a straight line (especially at the beginning and end) a more fuzzy line. If you clic...

Re: Test Recording FRENCH

Thanks Zach -

Her recording was just fine for the first one done by a new Librivox reader.
