Vinzi: A Story of the Swiss Alps by Johanna Spyri (1827 - 1901). Translated by Elisabeth P. Stork (1888 - 1968)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/vinzi-a-story-of-the-swiss-alps-by-johanna-spyri/

At 12 years old, Vinzi's only desire is to study his beloved music. But his father wants to make a farmer of him, and is displeased whenever he finds Vinzi yielding to his musical inclination. Mother and sister look on wistfully as circumstances go beyond their control, but throughout, they trust to the protection of their Father in Heaven.

This is another book by Johanna Spyri, author of Heidi. Here too, against the backdrop of the beautiful Swiss alps, she intertwines love, sincerity, and the freshness of youth to present a captivating story for young and old alike. (Rosebud)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/59941
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Soloist: Anita (Anitazz)
DPL: Rosebud

Kevin/Ann/Rosebud: I think this is right. I didn't know how to answer the question on whether there was a separate file for the forward. I answered "no", but a forward is being included and will be it's own section. Please let me know if I need to make any corrections. Should I try to put together the MW?

By answering 'yes' to "Is there a separate forward?" the MC knows to create a Section 00. If icequeen picks this project up, she will know what to do.

The nice thing about being a soloist is that you don't need to list word counts. I don't know if the work has chapter titles, but I would fill these in as soon as a MW is created by the MC. It keeps one focused, I think, and helps avoid mistakes

I think it's just a matter of waiting now.

Good job, Anita! :) Looking forward to the project!

Yes! The first post is perfect! Great job! Now comes the homework. What I need for you to do, Anita, is to get into the MW for the first time. Here is this doc, https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ , which tell you what to do. Let me know when you have accessed your MW, or are having any problems. If there are any problems, they are very easy to solve.

If you look at your original post, I have done what Rosebud has done in the first thread. I have shortened the file name down to vinzi_##, this will make your life infinitely easier. What the template generator spits out is not required to be used in that way. I have seen file names that are ten miles long, because the full title is ten miles long. But, those file names can be modified to something much more user friendly. I have also changed the first section to a 0 section for the forward. Normally, yes, you should click the yes if you are including the preface/forward, but it is super easy for me to fix so not a big deal. You will find that as a soloist, the ways things are done is not as strict as a group project. You just need to be consistent through the whole project.

But, on with your homework, it should be an easy assignment. Once that is done, then you get to fill in your MW.

Very nice! You even caught me on the one thing I did not do, sweet! I think we are safe to move on to Going Solo!

Probably my IT background helped a bit, though the instructions are pretty clear.... Might as well ask my next question: When I am ready to upload a reading, do I do it the "classic" way? Upload and post info in the thread, or am I supposed to update the MW directly. If the latter, is there anything magical about doing that? Thanks!

Ann can tell you how to do it, but to answer your direct question- yes, you do the latter. There will be 3 columns for you to operate each time: the duration, the file link, and the PL status. Then if you just post in the thread that you’ve uploaded something, I’ll be alerted to it.

Exactly what Rosebud said! The one thing you don't have to do anymore is to use the normal login information that you would have used as a normal reader. You can access the uploader through the workflow system. That first page has the button that will take you directly to the uploader itself. Upload your file to my folder, copy the link, then come here to your MW. Once you are in your MW, double click on the first box under the column "Listen URL." A box will open up inside that box, right click to paste the link and press Enter. Your link will appear in the box and there will be a clickable "Link" that shows up on the right side of the section. Also, if you could put the run time for that section in the "Notes" box for that section, that will be very helpful to me. Just like in group projects, we need those times to make sure that the internet didn't eat the tail off a file. Once you do that, then post to alert Rosebud that there is a section ready for her to listen to. I will also check this thread at least once a day, just to make sure things are running smoothly. You're doing great so far!

PL OK :clap:

I had a question on the spelling... I thought it was written as Foreword in the book? Not a big deal, just wondered. :)

Sheeesh!!! Believe it or not, that's the second correction to "Foreword" I needed to make! What gets me is that I don't think I ever really noticed that the foreword (of a book) ended in "word".... sometimes words just make so much sense. (This bugs me, my obliviousness, because I'm really pretty good at spotting those things... I love words!) Thanks for pointing it out... I just learned something new!
