Hi and welcome to Librivox!blenner wrote:Can I claim 80. Columbus and 51. Shakespeare's fairies please?
There are a few things to do before you get started.
Have you completed a one minute test? If you have, well and good. If not, it is highly recommended - this is to check your specs are up to Librivox standards, and if not, you'll be given hints on how to remedy that. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test These poems are short enough that you could use one as your test rather than the quotation given -- just state that you are using a poem from a project. Once it is perfected, you can then just submit it here and save yourself some work (OK, not that much, but some )
Please post your test in the Listeners Wanted forum (see the dropdown at the bottom of the page) for the speediest response. Waiting for the OK may seem tedious, but can save time in the long run.
You will also need to be added to the catalog of readers. I will add you using your forum name, but if you prefer your real name or a pseudonym let me know. We can also link to a personal blog or website. If you click on your name in the Magic Window, you will see your own personal catalog page.
Be sure to read the first post - all the info you need is there, but if anything doesn't make sense, just ask. The wiki (see the top of the page) has bundles of info too.
Edit: I have assigned 80, Columbus to you. Shakespeare's Fairies is #56, and has already been assigned. Look for sections with a blue background, that say "open" in the right-hand column.
