The Vicomte De Bragelonne by Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870)

All files can be found on our catalogue page here: http://librivox.org/the-vicomte-de-bragelonne-by-alexandre-dumas/
The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later (French: Le Vicomte de Bragelonne ou Dix ans plus tard) is the last of the Musketeer novels, sequel to the novels The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After. It is usually divided into three or four volumes and this first volume contains chapters 1-75. (Temporary and explainatory summary by Diana Majlinger)
  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?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. 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. The target completion date for this project is 1st October 2011.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/2609
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: Standard

    Note: This book, being a French one, contains quite a few French words and names. Usually if you write "[word] pronunciation" in Google search, you can find it. Forvo is a great site too, there are plenty of pronunciations, recorded by native speakers. If a word is not recorded yet, you can add it with its language and somebody will record it [you need to register to add words].
    However, Nadine [neckertb] has kindly agreed to help. If you need to hear the words to pronounce them, PM her the words and she'll record them and upload. If you require this, please read through your chapter(s) and send her the words you have problem with [and not just one word per PM when some French word occurs]. Please take into account that she's a volunteer too, so you may need to wait some time. She's mainly online in the evening [European time].
    Here's the pronunciation of "The Vicomte De Bragelonne by Alexandre Dumas." http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/dii/Bragelonne.mp3
    Abbreviations before names:
    M. is Monsieur
    Mme is Madame
    Mgr is Monseigneur

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

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of The Vicomte De Bragelonne. - 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:
      " The Vicomte De Bragelonne, by Alexandre Dumas. [Chapter number+title]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of 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 The Vicomte De Bragelonne, by Alexandre Dumas."

    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 constant background noise (hiss/buzz), 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

Hi,

When you are ready with the proof listening, I am willing to be a listener, even a dpl (Except two weeks in october/november, I am almost available every day to listen, I can also pay attention to the French pronounciation)

Welcome Valentine :)

That's great! I'll add you as DPL if you'd like [the proof-listener or the dedicated proof-listener [DPL] does the proof listening :)].

As for the pronunciation, we're not very strict about that here, on LibriVox. Asking for help is only a possibility, but it's not obigatory.

This post may be useful too :) http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=318667#318667
