Finally I got micro and setup running. Please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal web site/blog. Also, if this is your first recording, you may want to send (to the LibriVox Uploader - see first post "Transfer of Fi...

¡Bravo arturo! The last one brings me memories from Pedro Páramo. Les cuento. I'm currently on holidays, without laptop and only with a couple of mobile devices that won't record beyond 8Mhz. In a couple of weeks I will arrive back home, I'll get a proper mic and I will start contributing spoken wor...

We don't put constraints on the poetry collections. But if you need help picking something, give me some clues... are you more interested in classical poetry or more contemporary stuff? European or Latin American? If I know what you're interested in, I can point you to some different websites. Déja...

It will be a pleasure to read the section 35 (LXI and LXII).

If I have success and time perhaps I will be able to continue with a neighbor section. We'll see.

A USB mic plugged to a mobile phone or an Internet tablet? I'm not sure that it will work as plug and play. Perhaps with some tweaking.

What is wrong with the headset jack? (I guess I must read more FAQ before running to the shop).

Hi gipsygirl, nice voice! I find the topic too wide to get decided on anything. I looked at the Gutenberg link but there were all sorts of texts in Spanish and the only ones I recognized as short poems were the Rimas from Becquer.

Thanks for the warm welcome. It looks like my first contributions are going to be some poems from Becquer, the paradigm of the romantic poet in the Spanish literature. I tested with my phone and tablet but the sound quality using the factory micros was not good enough. I'll get a proper microphone p...

Catalan native speaker

Hi, I just discovered this impressive project today and I'm happy to help. Catalan and Spanish are my mother tongues. I'm currently living in Helsinki and my only chances to speak in Catalan rely on my two kids and a couple of colleagues at work. I work on free software for mobile devices at http://...
