Hi Andrea, Congratulations on your first read for LibriVox! :clap: We're pleased to have Eliot's essay here at the nonfiction collection. I had time this morning just to listen to the first minute or two of your recording, but your reading sounds very clear. :)

Our dedicated proof listener, HughGil, will check your recording over for technical details; looking at your specs myself, I noticed 73kb? Hugh, could you double check?

Again, thanks for your contribution; we hope it is the first of many to LibriVox!
Regards,
Sue

Andrea,

Sue is correct, that your file is at the wrong bitrate and sample rate.
Your file is ~73 kbps (variable) 48,000 Hz Mono

It needs to be 128 kbps constant, 44,100 Hz Mono

If you need help fixing this in Audacity, let us know.

It's called "Earthquakes" and is by the US Department of the Interior / The US Geological Survey from 1996.

I'm not in the US, so I'm not sure if I am allowed to read this to begin with. Besides, I have already contributed to this collection :wink: so may somebody else have fun with it!
If nobody else has chosen to take this on, I would like to record it. It should be an interesting addition to our collection, I would think.

Hi Roger, Thanks for "Earthquakes." The pictures that accompany the text are really terrifying! I think a lot of listeners will be interested in this read! :)

It's brief, but interesting and informative. Thanks go to Availle for locating this.

Hi Roger,

PL is okay. :thumbs:

Sad story. The picture of the freeway that collapsed is the 5, 14 interchange, this is part of my daily commute. It is now a memorial, known as the Clarence Wayne Dean memorial interchange. He was an LAPD motorcycle officer, on the morning of January 17th, several of the interchange bridged collapsed. He was on his way to work, it was before dawn, he could not stop in time and he drove his motorcycle off one of the collapsed bridges.

I have been through too many earthquakes, they are not fun.
