    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 would 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. 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? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/26658 Please use the links to the prepared text in the MW! (It contains all the necessary text for the section + intro and end of recording phrase.)
    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!

      START of recording (Intro) (The respective intro for the section is part of the linked file given in the MW.)
      • "Section [number] of Celebrated Travels and Travellers, volume 3. 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], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "Celebrated Travels and Travellers, volume 3. The Great Explorers and Travellers of the 19th Century, by Jules Verne. [section title]"

      • 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 Celebrated Travels and Travellers, volume 3. The Great Explorers and Travellers of the 19th Century, by Jules Verne. Translated by N. D'Anvers"

      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

      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 has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      celebratedtravels3_##_verne_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. celebratedtravels3_01_verne_128kb.mp3)
    9. Example ID3 V2 tags (Not required for this project)
      (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!
      Artist: Jules Verne
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: Celebrated travels and travellers, vol 3

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

Oh, why not? ;) MW is set up.

I added the _128kb to the file names. I'm not sure how this project is set up, but you might want to edit the intros/outros a bit to make them more clear to the listener.

And whatever you put in the section titles in the MW will be what goes in the ID tags, so ID tags aren't required by the readers. :)

Piotrek, are you DPL'ing, or were you just subscribing to the thread?

:D Thank you very much Tricia for MCing volume three also. Great! :clap: Thanks for the MW and the correction of the file name pattern.
I used a mobile device to post the new project and got totally lost. :? :lol:

The MW is filled up. We're up and running.
A DPL would be great. Thanks for adding the ~, Tricia! :)

Many thanks and greetings
Kajo

Ah, I've been looking forward to this! :thumbs:

I'll try to restrain myself and only read two chapters. Which make up sections 17 - 24, if you please, please? :oops:
Cheers,
Ava.

I'm glad you'll have me :wink:

I've quickly glanced at the text. There is a short introductory table of contents at the beginning of every chapter, but you have left it out in the google docs for chapter 3/section 17. Was that on purpose or an oversight?
Cheers,
Ava.

I'm very glad, too. :thumbs: Oops, that's not quite right, nor wrong :mrgreen: . My text division was faulty, so it was not copied into the resulting file. It's fixed now. Thanks for finding and pointing out. :clap:

I won't be PLing this time, so please don't put me in the MW.

I'd like to claim section 36-42, please.
