Beacon Lights of History, Volume 3: Ancient Achievements by John Lord (1810 - 1894).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/beacon-lights-of-history-vol-3-by-john-lord/

Quote:
The third book in the Beacon Lights of History series, Lord discusses achievements such as the formation of laws, the development of the fine arts, ancient science, and key people such as Cicero and Cleopatra. (KHand)


  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10484

  2. 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 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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin
    Genres for the project: *Non-fiction/History /Antiquity
    Keywords that describe the book: history, Greek, Roman, military history, paganism, arts

    ============================================

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Section [number] of Beacon Lights of History, Volume 3: Ancient Achievements. 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:
      "Beacon Lights of History, Volume 3: Ancient Achievements, by John Lord. [Section title]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Section [number] of Beacon Lights of History, Volume 3: Ancient Achievements by John Lord. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Section title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Section]"
    • 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 Beacon Lights of History, Volume 3: Ancient Achievements, by John Lord. "

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

  4. Example filename beaconlightsofhistoryvolume3_##_lord_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. beaconlightsofhistoryvolume3_01_lord_128kb.mp3)

  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
