Sorry to be dense, but what do you mean? Are you wanting to contribute something to this project? You are free to do so, just as long as it is in a language other than the current version of English, and it is short. If you are wanting a Magic Window for another project, this is not the place to ask for it. That would be in the Launch Pad forum, where you have posted other projects.

Hello,

sorry, you are not ignored, but probably your post got overlooked in the thread. I read through the posts and found it now, and since I just had a bit of time, I was listening to your recording. The poem proper is quite nicely read, also at a slow pace which is excellent for me to follow, as I don't speak Spanish, but understand enough to follow a text. :)

There are a few notes you need to adjust to, to make this recording up to the Librivox standard however.

first the technical bits:

> the format is at 93 kbps (variable), but we need it to be 128 kbs (constant). If you are using the Audacity program, this can be tweaked in there. Here is the wikipage to help you with the step-by-step: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Audacity_1-2-3 (section "Configure")

> your recording is really not loud enough. We aim for 89 dB, and accept anything between 86 and 92 dB. Yours is only 69.8 dB, I really had to crank up the volume to hear anything ;)
You can also amplify in Audacity. Highlight your entire recording, then go to Effects and then Amplify. You can put in +20 in the slot and push "ok". That should bring you to the required 89 dB.

> after that you could check if you need a bit of noisecleaning as the background noise will also be amplified by 20 dB. You can do that by sampling a bit of noise at the end of the recording, then go to Effects, then Noise Reduction and press first "get noise profile". Then highlight the entire recording, go again to Effects - Noise Reduction and then push OK. Audacity will do the rest. You can read this up here for more detail: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noise_Cleaning

> the upload link is a bit different than what is required too:
msw017_[work's title]_[author's last name]_[your initials]_128kb
the author is de unamuno, but you wrote de umano. also don’t upload it to the “xx-non-project” folder but to “icequeen”, the MC for this project. You find her in the scroll-down menu in the uploader.

Now to the text source:

> for the source text we always try to find a site which clearly marks that the text is public domain. Project Gutenberg or Archive.org are good sites to find texts. In this case I found the text here: https://archive.org/details/poesiasdemigueld00unam on page 25.

and about your recording proper:

> the Intro disclaimer is a bit different than our standard. You don’t need to say “seccion numero uno” because it might not be the first section in the MW. The required disclaimer is always written in the very first post in each project. Here it is:
"[Work title], by [author], read in [language] for LibriVox.org by [your name]".
and at the end say: "End of [Title]. This recording is in the public domain".

> between 0:11 and 0:20 seconds, you seem to be discussing together :hmm: I did not understand what was being said, but this is probably not the poem, so could you cut that part out please ?

> you seem to be two different readers if I get this correctly. The second reader seems to be farther away from the microphone, because that one is even less audible than the first. Try to sit really close to each other.
Also we would probably need both readers to make a LV account, so they can be credited properly. Who is the other reader, can you tell us, if she has already an account of her own ?

Ok, this is basically it, if you could correct all these bits I pointed out and reupload, then we can PL once again. I think the text itself was read flawlessly, but I would like to listen to it again when it’s a bit louder to be sure.

Thanks for the contribution in any case, it’s a very beautiful poem. :9:

I'm deeply sorry I overlooked your post! Your recording is in the Magic Window now. Here is your reader page: https://librivox.org/reader/11486
or you can just click on your user name in the Magic Window (MW).
On your reader page (also Reader section details) you can find the projects in which you take/took part and see which chapters you need to/had recorded, which are proof-listened (PLed) OK and which have PL notes.


Thanks, Kitty, for PLing!

Hello mariemdover!
I think we can't use the link you provided. Are there any other sited which let people use the PD books in commercial purposes as well? 'Cause LibriVox's audio files might be used in commercial purposes.

Antoher digital library is this: http://old.clarin.com.ar/pbda/cuentos/matadero/matadero.htm

I can't find anywhere in the site a note stating wether they allow commercial use or not. All it says is that all the works published in this online library are in the public domain:
OBRAS QUE CONTIENE EL PROYECTO
Reproduce aquellas obras que pertenecen al corpus de la literatura argentina y que, por imperio de la Ley 11.723, han pasado al dominio público. El mencionado texto legal impone tal dominio, ya que las obras se encuentran protegidas por el derecho de propiedad intelectual hasta 70 años desde de la muerte de su autor (contados desde el
1 de enero del año siguiente de su fallecimiento).

Se publica on line el texto íntegro de la obra siguiendo, para ello, rigurosos procesos de control y edición. Se respetan, dentro de lo prudente, las características de las versiones originales.
Si alguna forma ortográfica arcaica o en desuso se transformara para facilitar la lectura, se aclarará oportunamente.

Here's another one from Monmouth College's (IL) website: http://department.monm.edu/span326/rosas/

Again, I can't say whether they allow free commercial use or not.
