This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/flowers-and-ferns-in-their-haunts-by-mabel-osgood-wright/

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

There's a short introduction, then 11 titled chapters followed by an Index/Glossary. I've recorded the intro and first two chapters (she wrote well so it's a nice read) but unsure if I should record the Glossary as it's just American and Latin names of the plants. What do you think?

alright, youre all set.

as to the glossary, i personally would leave it out. you are welcome to read it though, if you feel like it. i can always add that 12th section to the magic window if you change your mind :)

one little thing i notice in your template is that the file name is rather long. i personally am a fan of short file names, so if you want, you can shorten it to flowersandferns_##_wright.mp3. but thats just a suggestion.

let me know if you need anything else!

I can DPL this for you if you'd like. It seems like it'd be very nice to listen to.

Okay, I'll not read the Latin names but I will need an extra field for Chapter 12 - XII. Aftermath. Thanks for taking this on. I've added the rest of the chapter headings. I've also shortened the file name as you suggest because (karma) that's what I've been using already. :)

Section 00 is PL OK

Section 01- Bellona, did you mistakenly upload the wrong file? The first 14 minutes dont have a single mistake, but from 14:30-24:01 there are a large amounts of repeats and stumbles, including a few "Whews!" :wink: .

Yes, I did, sorry! Currently uploading proper file. I think I got most of the flubs but there are a few towards the end I had trouble with, one involving slabs on a road. I'm reading from a rich-text version of the book and it has a few typos.

I can give the new section a listen on MOnday!

I hate when I upload the wrong one. I believe I once subjected Carolin to me screaming at my dogs as they suddenly tore through the house. Whoops!
