Two Old Faiths: Essays on the Religions of the Hindus and the Mohammedans by J. Murray Mitchell (1815 - 1904) and Sir William Muir.


This book contains two essays, one by each of the listed authors. They describe the two religions of Hinduism and Islam, their history, and their contrast with Christianity. This book was part of the curriculum for the C.L.S.C. (the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle) in the early 1900s"
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16996
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Have I missed anything in my SOLO post? What is the next step. I believe MC will place the magic window. Correct me if I got that wrong.

Thanks,

You missed nothing, on a quick glance. And yes, the next step is for an MC to come along. Sometimes it takes a few days.

I'll set this up after supper, in an hour or so. :)

OK, this is set up. A couple notes:

- You had J. Mitchell Murray as the author; it's actually J. Murray Mitchell. :) I've fixed all instances of the name.

- I've shortened the suggested file name.

- We'll need some sort of summary/intro before we go to the catalog. Just glancing at the text, maybe something like, "This book contains two essays, one by each of the listed authors. They describe the two religions of Hinduism and Islam, their history, and their contrast with Christianity. This book was part of the curriculum for the C.L.S.C. (the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle) in the early 1900s." :?:


As you're the soloist, you're in charge of updating the Magic Window.

Detailed Instructions for accessing the Magic Window can be found in the document linked here: Instructions for Soloists

Video showing how to use the Magic Window (read the above document first - it has the information on how to log in for the first time, which this does not have):
Magic Windows / Section Compiler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOP4tcr1kl8

I've entered a couple chapter titles for you as an example. You can fill in the rest, or change the ones I entered if you like something better. :)

When you upload a chapter, put the file duration (mm:ss) in the Notes field and the uploaded URL into the Listen URL field, and mark it from Assigned to Ready for PL. And post in the thread so your proof-listener (whoever it ends up being) knows you uploaded a new section. :)

Scientila...

If you are looking for a dedicated proof listener (DPL) I'd be interested in this project.

Many thanks,

Philip

I've added you in, Philip. I assume Scientila won't object - she's new, and probably doesn't have another DPL lined up.

Thanks! :)

Hi,

I wanted to add the recording link to Magic window and When I clicked on BC admin, I get the message as no permission.

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/twooldfaiths_01_mitchell_128kb.mp3

This is the First section and would like to get some feedback. It's a small section and I don't mind recording it again.

Thanks,
Scientila

Scientila:

I see Tricia has already posted the link with the information on how to access the Magic Window. I'll try to PL this section Saturday afternoon.

Congratulations on completing your first recording! I look forward to hearing it.

Many thanks,

Philip

Did you set up your login for the Magic Window? It isn't the same as your forum login (unless you make it that way deliberately).

If you were logged into the uploader using the generic LV login, you'd need to logout of that first before setting up your personal login that would work in the MW. (The uploader and MW are all part of the "workflow" which would use the same login/password.)

Hope this makes sense!

Scientila:

Thank you for allowing me to DPL for you. I have listened to your first section and have noted some small minor corrections which need to be made before I can mark it PL-OK.

The "tech specs" on the file were perfect.

The beginning silence of 5 seconds needs to be reduced to between .5-1 second.

The ending silence is 3.5 seconds and needs to be 5 seconds.

These are in place (especially the ending one) to insure your reading does not get cut off.

At 0:40 there is a loud click in your reading. This click needs to be eliminated.

One last thing--whenever you upload a file be sure to post its running length. Tricia will need that for cataloging purposes.

Very well read and an excellent first submission. I'm looking forward to hearing more.

Many thanks,

Philip

Yeah...That was it. Now I'm able to access the MW. Thanks for the help.

Philip,

Thank you for Listening to it. I have corrected the seconds at the beginning and at the end. Tried my best on the click sound. Not sure if I did a good job there.

Also I noticed that, after period when I start a sentence with "A" or "The"...My voice is too low. Not sure if it's a disconnect to listener or if this is natural.

Thanks again. I have uploaded the edited link to the MW.
