Birds and Nature, Vol. XII, No 2, September 1902 .

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/birds-and-nature-vol-xii-no-2-september-1902-by-various/

"Birds and Nature" was a monthly publication of the Nature Study Publishing Company of Chicago. It includes short poems, anecdotes and factual descriptions of birds, animals and other natural subjects with accompanying color plates. The magazine was published from 1897-1907 under the various titles, "Birds," "Birds and all Nature," "Nature and Art" and "Birds and Nature." - Summary by J. M. Smallheer
    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? For this project, we ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1 month 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 one month, your sections may be 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 one month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/47882 (Note: the PG page identifies this incorrectly as July 1902. When you click through to the text, you will see it is actually the September issue)
    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!

    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 latest versions of Audacity are recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    birdsandnaturesept1902_##_various_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. birdsandnaturesept1902_01_various_128kb.mp3)

    (NOTE: Do not add ID3 tags. These will be added automatically during cataloging)

I noticed that I sped up a bit towards the end (which is what happens as soon as I stop focusing on my talking speed...), if it's too much, let me know?

Welcome Phil. Section 2 and 3 are yours. Any instructions needed are in the first post in the thread. :) As for what name to use in the catalog, that is really up to you. Your catalog name can be changed, but it will only change it on the LibriVox site, not anywhere else our files end up or on the CD cover that gets made when a project is cataloged. You can choose to use your forum name, real name or some other pseudonym for the catalog. Just let me know what you decide. :)
