This project can be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/tolstoi-for-the-young-selected-tales-from-tolstoi-by-leo-tolstoy/

Tolstoi for the Young: Selected tales from Tolstoi by Leo Tolstoy (1828 - 1910). Translated by Mrs. R.S. Townsend ( - 0)
Seven stories by Leo Tolstoy selected with the idea of introducing younger people to his wonderful writings. Some of the stories are well known and others more obscure; some are long and others quite short but all are of course from the pen of the great graf Leo Tolstoy and faithfully translated by Mrs. R. S. Townsend. ( philip a chenevert)
    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/51708
    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!

    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Section [number] of Tolstoi for the Young: [Name of Story]. 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:
        "Tolstoi for the Young. Translated by Mrs. R.S. Townsend [Story Name]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Name of Story]"
      • 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 Tolstoi for the Young: Selected tales from Tolstoi, by Leo Tolstoy. Translated by Mrs. R.S. Townsend "

      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
      tolstoifortheyoungselectedtalesfromtolstoi_##_tolstoy.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. tolstoifortheyoungselectedtalesfromtolstoi_01_tolstoy.mp3)


      Please ignore ID3 tags - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
