In a way, someone has beaten me to it - Evelyn Kaye followed Isabella's unbeaten tracks in 1998 and wrote a book. But there's no film yet. So I will be making the film. I need to decide how to frame it, but I'm researching and studying and hoping that something will come to me. I'm now planning to d...

I have been myself on the Internet from way before the days of paranoia - going on 15 years, I guess. I can't hide my tracks at this point, so I just continue on with obvious connections between my real name and several various nicknames. I'll be easily found if someone ever has evil intentions towa...

Please be advised before your contribute audio files, text summaries, graphics, forum postings, etc., that anyone may use anything you contribute to Librivox... Nikolle, that is a little bit misleading. Materials in the catalog are in the public domain. Audio files, summaries and explanatory text, ...

another aspect of avoiding plosives is careful enunciation Great idea. That could easily be another column on its own. Could you/would you expand on your pronunciation techniques? How do you do "gently say words"? If you can describe how to do it in 150 words (send me a PM if you like), I'll add an...

jimmowatt & kri, thanks! I will edit these into our first two Buzz & Hmmm columns.

If anyone else wants to contribute on the same topics, that's great. Just like our recordings, there's room for more than one version.

Aha! so your problem isn't so much the form size as it is your browser's lame spell checker. Maybe that can be fixed, too. :)

...the entry field in the Message body of my LibriVox forums posts... Yes, the message body form size is quite irritating, isn't it? Unfortunately, a change means going in and tweaking the phpBB code. I've done that for other sites once or twice and hope never to have to touch it ever again. It's a...

Buzz & Hmmmm: weekly tips! contributors wanted

I'm putting together a new weekly "tips and hints" column for LibriVox called Buzz & Hmmmm . It will focus on how to improve recordings, reading performances, editing, sound quality and all the thousands of other points that LibriVox volunteers encounter. But I'm only organizing. I need your help! H...

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I consider everything I do for LibriVox in the public domain - certainly anything related to the recordings, including summaries. I whipped up some t-shirt designs, which another LibriVoxer modified slightly and now sells for a profit. That's fine; I need neither credi...

It'll move slowly, but it'll be done eventually - and I can always open it up to a collaborative project if I get fed up... I kind of hope you get fed up with it (or opt to take a partner as a duet). :) I've decided that I'd like to retrace Isabella Bird's footsteps this autumn. I know generally wh...
