Terrific recording, the care with which you read all those names is amazing.

I will finally have time to fix the things that need fixing this week. I'm sorry it has taken so long. Lots of family issues.
I should be able to start repairs on Tuesday

Thanks Dabbler.

This is my first narration for Librivox. I should do ok on pronunciation. I have a degree in ancient history and have read a lot of Roman.

Hi, Paul, and welcome to LibriVox

I assigned you section 29, thank you for claiming. Please let me know under what name/pseudonym you would like to appear in the catalog; we can also link to a personal blog/website, if you wish.

Also, it might be a good idea to do a little test, to make sure your settings are ok. You can record the first minute or so of your section and upload it to my folder, using the instructions in the first post of this thread. Then post the link here, and I can check it. It's just to make sure you have all the technical aspects correctly set - it's not fun to record a long section, just to learn it has to be done all over again!

Thanks,
Leni

Leni,

I will do a short stint and send it along. As you say, why do a long section in vain?

I thank you for your help and advice.

My online pseudonym is calleydog, after a sheltie I once had. I do also have a blog which I wouldn't mind having noted:
