Hi,

I decided I would learn latin by reading aloud Latin texts along with the French translation. I don't know if it will sound good enough for LibriVox. I use a Creative to record my voice. This is the only device I have for recording and I'm not willing to buy a new one for now. Maybe you could tell me. The link is right here :

Hi,
would you perhaps like to help us in the translation of the Librivox Website into french? Or perhaps some important help-pages for starters? How about it?
--------------------

About your question: Will it sound good enough? It certainly will. You know, we almost have no quality-requirements for the recordings here, in as much as we accept the most amateurish readings, as well as the most professional recordings. It's all fine, as long as its done with heart. And you can feel it. :wink:
The text you record has to be in the public domain and the file you send better be a 128kbit mp3 (because otherwise the process is prone for errors). If your "creative" (Muvo?) can't do it, we certainly like to help.

Welcome to Librivox,
Stephan
