For many things, there is no right or wrong; there may be a standard practice but sometimes it's down to the reader, or up to the Book coordinator if he/she wants to stipulate for consistency.

As for attributed quotes, yes, you say "quote... End quote" - unless you start to feel as if that's all you're saying and it's annoying (both to you and any potential listener) - a judgement call.

If there's no attribution, but maybe just something everybody say, just read it as is, without the quotes.

For lists, it's usual to read the numbers first, but if you don't, it doesn't matter too much ch.

A couple of other things that may crop up in non-fiction works:
Graphs: these are usually discussed in the text, so you can either skip over it, or say "there follows a graph showing..." But it's not your job to interpret the graph.

Tables:there's a lot of discussion about how to read tables . I would probably follow the guideline for graphs, but some people say you should read everything in the table. I'd say it's a case by case decision and you can decide yourself, or ask the BC.

Offensive language: yes, sometimes we come across offensive language, which perhaps wasn't offensive at the time it was written. This should be read as written unless the text says, for example, n- or d-, which it often does. We do not censor. If you come across something you're not comfortable reading, then we suggest you relinquish your claim to that section. You wouldn't be the first and someone else may be ok reading it.

I addressed footnotes in response to an earlier question

The biggest rule is THIS IS FUN 8-) so relax and enjoy!
Ok thanks for your answers. I'm good... I didn't mean to seem stressed! :) And I don't think there will be any objectionable words in any book by this author, so we're good there! :)

Hislovismighty, can you please get back to me on your catalog name? You're the only one I need one for. Thanks! (If you do not get back to me within two weeks, I will have to make your sections available for other volunteers. Thank you)

Dawn,

A couple things:
  • If you post the link in the listeners wanted section viewforum.php?f=21 you will get more experienced help.
  • Your file name should be test_[your name in lowercase]
  • I don't know what you are using, which when you post over in listeners wanted you should add that so that they can give more specified help. (i.e. I use Audacity to edit on a Windows computer using a USB mic.)
  • Your mp3 should be saved in mono not stereo.
  • Your volume is a little low. The acceptable range is 86–92 dB and yours is 75.2 dB.
It was good to hear your voice!

Oh yes thank you PurposefulAbnegation. I forgot to mention that you do need to post your test in the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum. Thanks!

That would be wonderful! Thank you TammyGlaser! I'll reserve your sections right away! But first, you need to complete a one minute test to make sure your tech specs are OK. Here are the instructions. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test When you're done please post a link to your test in the listeners wanted forum. I also need to know what you would like your catalog name to be. That's the part where you say "[Chapter Name] read by..." It can be your real name, your forum name, your nickname, or something completely different. Just know that it can't be changed because that's what gets read into the audio. I can also link you to a personal website or blog.

I just submitted Take 2 of my 1 min test to the listeners forum.
They wanted me to tweak a couple things, but I believe I was already OK-ed

https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_marybethingrace.mp3

Am I good to go, or do I need to wait for further approval? I didn't hear anything back from this forum about my first test.
Thanks

I just looked and it says your OKed! As long as you continue to apply the tweaks to your future recordings, you should be good to go! Have fun recording! :thumbs:

Hi aaronml! I will get that to you asap. Trying to determine whether I should post my name or not. :)

Thank you. However you need to post your test in the listeners and editors wanted forum, not here. You also need to upload it under "tests" and not Lynnet. If you scroll all the way down in the dropdown MC selection menu when you upload the test, you'll see the "tests" section. I hope that makes sense. Thank you, and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Now it's in my folder, it can stay there. Any admin can access it - it's just that I will have to clean the tests out of my folder at some point, whereas someone routinely deletes them from the tests folder :D
Help us finish:
Hinduism and Buddhism Volume 3 10+ sections remaining
My Danish Sweetheart 2 5 sections remaining
The Castle of Twilight 1 sections remaining
Prince and Heretic 10+ sections remaining

Did most everyone use their real name for the catalog?

I didn't. My uncle gives all his nieces and nephews nicknames at birth and I used that.
