Dodo's Daughter by E. F. Benson (1867 - 1940).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/dodos-daughter-by-e-f-benson/


This is an abandoned solo project, lovingly brought back as a group project!

The second in the "Dodo" sequence of novels. (Summary by Crowgirl)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/40762
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, 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 website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

This is my first time doing a book like this. If we have questions on pronouncing names and such, should we listen to the previous chapters to make sure we are consistent? I know you normally don't do that for fear of overloading servers, but I wasn't sure in this case.

Thanks!

I don't have a problem with you listening to a section or two in order the match the pronunciation of names with the other sections. But, I also don't normally say anything about a name not being pronounced "correctly," unless it is a city name and it was totally butchered (that happened only once!). Because we have a worldwide volunteer base, some people will not pronounce a word the same as we would pronounce it here. I think it adds to a project, to have a difference in pronunciation, different accents, etc. Basically, what I am saying is, don't worry about pronunciation too much because I'm not worried about it!
