Ontario Public School Geography by (the) Ontario Dept. of Education ( 1922 ) .

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/ontario-public-school-geography-2/
This Ontario Public School textbook, published in 1922, contains some fascinating facts of a world which no longer exists. It seems politically-incorrect in some of it's descriptions by modern day standards. (Summary by David Lawrence)
  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? May 30, 2014
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. 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.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Please use the text linked in the Magic Window for each section
    Source text: http://archive.org/details/ontariopublicsch00onta
  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

    Please don't download or listen to 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!

  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)
    • "Section [number] of Ontario Public School Geography. - 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:
      " Ontario Public School Geography , by the Ontario Dept. of Education . [Section]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • 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 Ontario Public School Geography , by Ontario Dept. of Education . "

    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.

    * To insure accuracy you may wish to copy/paste the following filename and ID3 tag info. :wink:

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    onpubgeography_##_ontdeptedu_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. onpubgeography_04_ontdeptedu_128kb.mp3) (*note the new filename format!)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Section title] (e.g. 04 - Food from the Soil)
    Artist: Ontario Dept. of Education
    Album: Ontario Public School Geography

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:

    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Hi David

I guess that that is a subtle message to remind me that I'm 'Flying The Flag' for the British sections?

So, no pressure then?!! :wink:

Cheers

Steve

Thanks, David. This looks like an interesting project, quite different from most. If things go well I could see myself requesting additional chapters down the road (if you want me to, that is!).

Take care,

Greg
