Japanese Fairy Tales by Yei Theodora Ozaki (1871 - 1932).


A collection of Japanese Fairy Tales translated into English in 1908 by Yei Theodora Ozaki. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4018
  • 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!

Hi MaykoMae and welcome to LibriVox. I'd be happy to MC this solo for you.

Before you start, we highly recommend that you send in a short test recording to check that all the technical requirements are good.

http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

I see you have submitted a short poem to the short poetry collection. If you wish, you can use that as your test. I had a short listen and your reading is excellent. However, the volume is too low and there is sufficient background noise that simple amplification is not what I would recommend. Please post it or the recommended one minute test in Listeners Wanted where the folks who regularly check test recordings can have a listen and give you some more specific suggestions.

Meanwhile for this solo, please use this text link instead of the feedbooks.com link. Whenever possible, we prefer to use gutenberg links in the catalog.

This project is now set up in the database. Since this will be your first project as soloist/book coordinator(BC), you will need to set up a password for access to the workflow system so you can enter the information into the section compiler which then appears in the "Magic Window" in the top post. Here are some links to detailed instructions for logging into the system and setting a password the first time, as well as for entering and editing information in the section compiler.

First Time Logging in to the Workflow

Instructions for BCs and DPLs

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.

BCs - How to Update the Magic Window

Please also note I have added the _128kb to the filenames. ID3 tags will be added during cataloging so you don't need to add them to your files.

If you have any questions, let me know. I'll leave this thread here in the Launch Pad for a day or so longer before I move it to the Going Solo forum, to see if a DPL (Dedicated Prooflistener) volunteers. Looking forward to working with you.

Hi Mayko,

Are you still planning to record this book? Please post and let me know. If I don't hear from you, this project will be abandoned and deleted from the database as there are no sections recorded.

My apologies for the radio silence, my computer and was broken months ago and I was unable to fix it until recently. Given my current workload at this point, it does seem like a project of this size is unwise. I hope to revisit this sometime in the (probably distant) future but for now I think I will have to limit myself to shorter-term endeavors, so feel free to delete this project.
Once again, sorry for the lack of communication and for any inconvenience, and thanks for all your support!

Thanks for responding MaykoMae. I will put this on hold temporarily. Just PM me or any other admin to have the project reinstated on the forum. If you don't have time to get back to it in say 6 months or so, I will delete the database entry. At that point you will need to use the new project template to and start over from the beginning.
