Hi :D

My name is Susan. Sue is also fine. I'm very pleased to be here and look forward to working with you. I reside in Portland Maine, USA and right now we are having a hard time getting into Spring.

I am not entirely new to recorded reading I did some work for the Iris Network which is our states organization for the blind. I used to read on the radio a bit and read the Saturday paper to the residents of the Apartment house they have. They were a great group of people. I'm not the best reader but I am enthusiastic and I work hard.

Enough about me I hope some of you will knock on my door(so to speak) and introduce yourselves to me.

Now I have to get on with that one minute recording for a sound check, I believe.

Best regards,

Sue

Welcome to Librivox, Sue! The Wiki is a great place to start. You’ll find most of the information you’ll need about Librivox there. If not, feel free to ask.

For your sound check, please post to the Listeners & Editors Wanted forum.

Dive right in and have fun!

Hello, Susan! We welcome you to LibriVox. We're always glad to see new volunteers! :thumbs:

Before you start recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to this wiki page to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum. :wink:

If you don't want to record, you can proof listen (PL)! Proof-listening is the process of listening to a recording in order to catch recording mistakes, and verify that the file meets the technical requirements. All recordings are "prooflistened" to catch repeats, big stumbles or long pauses. A Proof-Listener is the volunteer who does the proof-listening, and will report back any errors in the file. Please visit Guide For Proof Listeners for more information. We're always looking for more Proof-Listeners! :)

We hope you have a positive experience here at LibriVox. Please ask if you have any questions at all!
Thank you! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I don't know, Sue, sounds like you're a pretty great reader to me. :) Enthusiasm and hard work makes the best readers. ;) Glad to have you here. :)

I've had a death in the family and won't be around Librivox much for the next while. I'll be back ... when I'm back. I appreciate your patience in the meanwhile. :)
