Greetings from Mumbai! I recently joined the Librivox forum where I hope to collaborate with several of you by helping to record some of the more interesting and impactful literary works. My journey in this space began approximately 25 years ago when I started to read for the blind students in Mumbai. Given my work commitments, I was unable to do this in person and hence volunteered to record textbooks whenever time permitted. The gratitude of those students is something I shall always cherish. By joining the Librivox community, I hope to be able to contribute to the learning and enjoyment of people worldwide. Sanjay.

Hello, Sanjay, and welcome to this community! What a beautiful part of the world you come from! :D

It's great to see you bring such commitment and valuable experience to this project. There are many things going on here all the time, so I'm sure you'll find many projects you'll want to participate in.

After you've submitted your one-minute test and it's OK, you'll be good to go (This is not an audition: it's just to check that you'll be working with Librivox technical specifications). You 'll be able to claim sections in different kinds of collaborative projects or record solo.

This is a friendly site. If you have any questions, feel free to post in the forums and other members will reply.

I'm sure you'll make wonderful contributions to Librivox!

Have a great time here. Happy recordings! :clap: :clap: :clap:
