Hello mc_weiss.. and welcome to LibriVox!

I'll sign you up for both sections of Nehemiah. Thanks for helping out!

If you're new to recording, it may be a good idea to send me a short sample first (say, of just Chapter 1), to make sure everything's okay with your setup. But if you're comfortable with recording, just dive right in.

As for pronunciation, you can check out this site to find help for most of them, with the pronunciations spelled out phonetically (e.g. "AY-bruh-ham" for Abraham). Here's the site:
Bible Words - Phonetic Pronunciation. It's quite handy, and easy to use.

And if you have any other questions about any part of the process, whether recording, or editing, or sending your file, or anything else, don't hesitate to ask. See you around!
I remember how, in college, I got that part-time job as a circus clown, and how the children would laugh and laugh at me. I vowed, then and there, that I would get revenge.

I hope this doesn't offend anybody (I don't think it will, but I could be wrong), but it's related to our topic, and, in my eyes, very amusing and cute:

LOLCat Bible translation

Genesis is fun, and has an audio version. Ecclesiastes is also fun.

I really like how literal it is. For example:
7 Seaz can has streemz, nevur fullz. Streemz go bak where comez frum.

8 All tingz has DO NOT WANT, more den werdz sez. Lolrus never sez "enuf bucket, kthnx" or kitteh sez "dats good, enuff cheezburger."

9 Has happen? Gunna be agin. Nuthing new undur teh sunz.

10 Kitteh can not sez "OMFGZ sumthing new!" Been hear b4, lawng ago, hear b4 our timez.

11 New kittahz 4gitz old kittahz, new kittahz 4gitd bai even newer kittahz.
7. All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full. To the place where the rivers flow, there they flow again.

8. All things are full of weariness beyond uttering. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

9. That which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

10. Is there a thing of which it may be said, "Behold, this is new?" It has been long ago, in the ages which were before us.

11. There is no memory of the former; neither shall there be any memory of the latter that are to come, among those that shall come after.
If you have no idea what this is, I guess you can start here:

I'm not sure how strict we're being here about "no off-topic discussion," but if admins/BC/MC decide to strike this post, I won't be the least bit offended.

Section 31 is completed. I hope :-) Let me know if I made any mistakes with any of the millions of details. I welcome any comments/crits/corrections.

Section: 31

Length: 43:30

File size: 40,784 KB (41.76 MB according to the LV uploader)

URL: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/km/worldenglishbible_031_judges.mp3

Attribution: Great Plains



Question: What is the "Bit Rate Mode"? When I go to export the Audacity 1.3.3 file as an MP3, I clicked on "Options", and I got the "Specify MP3 Options" dialog box. The Bit Rate Mode options are "Preset", "Variable", "Average", and "Constant". The default option is "Constant", so I used that one. But should I have used one of the other options?

Here's Section 115 (Zechariah), and it's kind of a big one: 34.89 MB.

Oh my God....I just realized that I uploaded my file to the wrong person......I am so sorry. I sent it to "lm" when I should have sent it to "km". I think my eyes are bad or something.

Again, my sincerest apologies..... :oops: :x :roll:

Thank you for your section, Great Plains. As far as I can see, everything's correct - the file name, the ID3 tags, the intros and outros - all perfect. I appreciate your attention to detail.

I listened to about 10 minutes of your recording, and it was obvious that you put a lot of effort into it. It came out sounding great - you read at a good pace, with plenty of expression and an understanding of the text (and you did a good job with the voice acting, which is optional, by the way). This was a long file, and I'm sure, since you're still new, that it took you quite a while. But I think others will appreciate the narrative a lot more because of your effort. Thanks again!

You were right to use "Constant" bit rate. I'm not an expert on this, but I'm pretty sure that "Bit Rate Mode" means how the program transforms audio information into computer data. Different Bit Rate Modes would be used for different purposes. For example, a spoken recording of a book has a lot less audio information than a recording of an orchestra playing, with all its musical nuances. If you had a recording with both an orchestra playing and someone speaking in it, you'd want to use Variable, because it'd be able to vary the sound quality over time, making the recording lower quality when it was just the person speaking (to save space, since sound quality is not as important) and higher quality when it was the orchestra playing (since high quality is important). Since we're not doing anything complicated like that, constant bit rate is all we need.

Thanks again, Lissa_Maylee!

Yea, the sections in this project are bigger than usual, to make it a little easier to catalog when it's done (more sections means more work for the cataloger). This is still a huge project though.

Don't worry; that's an easy mistake to make. I have got a folder on there, since I'm a new Admin, but I started this project before I became one. And plus I'm the one you're mostly interacting with. But do go ahead and upload it to the km folder. Thanks!

EDIT: No need to worry about uploading the file to km. I went ahead and did it, since the uploader was going particularly fast tonight.

Hi! I have now submitted about eight short works and would like to try a longer piece and I love Bible stories. Can I have Section 040 - First Book of Kings Chapters 1 - 6?
