Re: Error in the Finnish disclaimer

As a new member, I would wish I could ask a simple question on the usual way to proceed without it being insinuated I was presumptuous. I'm only trying to help improve things. Seeing as there were typos in the existing disclaimer, I'm not too optimistic about there being enough Finns here for anyone...

Re: Error in the Finnish disclaimer

Free of copyright should be fine, emminiz. If you can provide a better Finnish translation of the disclaimer, we would be happy to add it in the wiki! Thank you! I liked KevinS's suggestion, so I'm doing a quick gallup of my circle to see which they find easier to understand, "free of copyright" or...

Re: Error in the Finnish disclaimer

Actually, "public property" and "public domain" are very close. In Russian, for instance, the literal meaning of the legal term is "societal property" or "societal asset", so it's probably something similar in other languages. My point is that it needs to be distinguished from "property of the stat...

Re: Error in the Finnish disclaimer

AFAICT, "in public domain", "public property" and "owned by the state" are not necessarily the same thing. Whatever it means in Finnish law may actually be different from what it means in the USA. LibriVox is the subject of the American law because the collection is stored in the US and is publishe...

Error in the Finnish disclaimer

Hey! I considered recording a piece in Finnish and caught a bit in the standard disclaimer that bothers me. The way it is currently, it effectively says that all Librivox recordings are public property, i.e. owned by the state ("äänitteet ovat julkista omaisuutta "). Overall, the Finnish disclaimer ...

Re: [ESSAYS] Hearts of Controversy by Alice Meynell -jo

Hi there, I've just PL'ed section 1. Very nicely read, there's only one little thing that may need re doing At 0:19 at the end of the intro, I didn’t hear One in "Chapter One Some thoughts of a Reader of Tennyson” Really everything else was very fine. Betty Oh, sorry about that! I thought at that p...

Hello Emminz, ...
Thank you, Adrian! Very helpful comments. I have been iterating on the setup today but haven't yet found that perfect combination. Tomorrow, I will try creating a blanket fort of sorts. I have certainly been staying too far from the microphone too.

1 Minute Test [OK]

Hey! I'm new to recording and would love any and all feedback. You can find the test file here: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_emminz.mp3
Can you hear the construction works on the background? I can't hear it myself, but if it is there, I will find a way to get rid of it.
