Re: Can I use my phone to record?

You could use an iPhone to record, edit, master (i.e., apply compression, limiter, etc.) and export as a 128kb MP3 using TwistedWave, which I think costs like $5 for iPhone and iPad.

Re: SOLO - The Railway Children-ans

Re: Need recording advice from seasoned readers

I don't do much editing, so it's a lot faster for me. I guess around 1.5 hours of editing for a 1-hour recording. Maybe 2 hours if it's a really complicated text and I make a ton of errors. When I make an error while recording, I snap my fingers to leave a big spike in the recording, then re-read th...

Re: Questions about my audiobook player - PalmABooks 2 integration with LibriVox

And please make it very clear to your users that your app is not a LibriVox creation, and that they must ask YOU for help and support, not us. Thank you!

Re: Github

I am the admin she spoke to. In her intro email she mentioned that she would like to have our code on github. My reply was this: Great! Yeah, there has been discussion in the admin forum about putting the code on github. I don't know what became of that plan -- not my area of expertise! If you post ...

Re: August Libriversaries

Librivox is 13 years old this month. Hard to believe. I remember the day it was born. We thought it'd be amazing if we ever recorded 100 books, and now we have over 12,000. Thank you, everyone. You are librivox!

Re: Reading sections of novels

Like Tricia, I just jump in. I think it's fun to try to puzzle out what's going on while I'm recording, and I get bored if I pre-read.

And I, too, enjoy the charming little variations that occur in group recordings :)

My suggestion is that your voice will best match what you are most interested in and excited by! What kind of books do you like to read for yourself?
YES. Please don't feel you need to read a book that matches your dialect, age, or gender. Read something that seems like fun to you! :9:
