Queue, Thank you for your submissions. And, Weclome to Librivox. They sound good, especially for a first reading. The volume is good and your reading is nice and clear :) If you don't mind a little advice for future recordings, though... there were quite a few "plosives" in both recordings (loud puf...

No no Starlite, we're not saying they have to volunteer. We're saying, how do we entice them to volunteer :) *Hopefully* if we raise enough hoopla about the anniversary and all that Librivox has accomplished in just the first year, it will inspire more people to get involved. :D I know it was menti...

Thanks to everyone who've made submissions so far. :) I have updated the first post to reflect that we'd love to receive the "happy birthday, Librivox" recording in as many languages as possible. But I guess it bears repeating here, for those who won't notice that I updated the first post in the fir...

Ok, it's been a good 9 years since I've "formally" studied french, so my spoken French/pronunciation has become....well, not great. Not to mention I'm generally not huge on poetry. But I love the french language and did so want to try something other than English, so here's my attempt: http://www.yo...

I have now uploaded "tiktok and the nome king" to kri's uploader. (filename is littlewizardstories_03_baum.mp3, but it added a ton of weird characters before the actual filename.) Again, if someone wants to proof-listen, feel free. I'm mainly concerned about background noise and making sure there ar...

I would like to claim part 13 , if I may. I have 2 pronunciation questions regarding the text. The first is, how the heck is "Buyse" pronounced? (Bysee?) The second regards a specific section of the text, which is about something containing "songs, receipts, prayers and charms..." I've read elsewher...
