Any more takers for pages? There are 11 yet unclaimed.

These are very short readings--perfect for testing out your equipment if you're a new volunteer, or for procrastinating on reading Treasure Island. :wink:

(Thanks to Squiddhartha, Brad, Alex & Kara for their quick work.)

if you don't get anymore volunteers for a while and you want to get it done fast, sign me up for a few more. They're soooo tiny!

My husband (grinning the whole while) was reading along with Alex's audio of International Episode and it was well-paced for reading and page-turning.

One thing that would be great, though this is something "down the road" to do in collabration with the OL programmers, is to link the audio files to the start of the chapters. As it stands now, if you read partway through a book then click Listen, it begins the audio from Chapter 1. Although page-perfect would be nice, getting it to start at the beginning of the current chapter would be a very good compromise.

Hi Kristen...

Well, that was easy -- here's my mom, Sally, reading "Books Accessible to All". She said it was fun!

Put Sureka (my wife) down for "Maintaining Quality". We should both be able to do our recordings by the middle of the week.
