Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert. Translated by Eleanor Marx-Aveling.

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/madame-bovary-by-gustave-flaubert/
  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’d 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?
    Target completion date of this project: October 2008 – but try to send your recordings as soon as you can. 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.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/2413
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!


    (BC admin)
  6. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Part [number], Chapter [number] of Madame Bovary. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"
    • Say:
      "Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert. Translated by Eleanor Marx-Aveling. Part [number], Chapter [number]."
    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of Part [number], Chapter [number]."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert. Translated by Eleanor Marx-Aveling."
    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some background noise, you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    madamebovary_##_flaubert.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. madamebovary_01_flaubert.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/WhatIsID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Section title as given in the magic window] - e.g. 01 - Part I, Chapter 1
    Artist: Gustave Flaubert (translator: Eleanor Marx-Aveling)
    Album: Madame Bovary

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
      http://upload.librivox.org
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
      You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: ec - earthcalling
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.
    I'll need the following information from you when you submit a recording:
    • your name/pseudonym as you want to appear in the LibriVox catalog, and your website URL if you like. These are only necessary if this is your first LibriVox recording.
    • the file size of your .mp3 file/duration of the recording.
Any questions?
Please post below or PM me. :)

OK, done. So as not to confuse the passer-by, I'll delete our recent posts....

Now I'll do the database entry and set up the magic window.

Thank you k! I've added you as 'alternate BC', so you have access to the BC parts of the database.

-- I've entered the first 2 titles, using the same format as in the contents page of the e-text. Can you carry on with the rest?

We're all ready for readers!

I've added the titles and word counts (to check there are no chapters that need to be split - there aren't), and signed myself up for the next 2 chapters.

Great, thanks!

I noticed that there are some footnotes in the text - places where there are asterixes and definitions of certain words. I'm assuming that we'll all be reading these as part of the text? As if the footnote were simply in parentheses after the word in question? If not, let me know...
