I was delighted to find your site. A passionate lover of books, I admire the work you are doing here and hope to contribute. I am familiarizing myself with the process and would welcome any advice or guidance.

Hello Hana san,

Welcome to LibriVox. I hope you enjoy it here.

Do you know Japanese or Korean?
'Hana' means 'flower' in Japanese.
'Hana' means 'one' in Korean.

Your next step is one minute test.

Cheers,
Masa

Hi Hana
Welcome to our communities of book fans :)
The test Masa san mentioned is described in detail here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test You'll also find there the tech specs which we want all the files to adhere to, as well as the info on how to upload the thing.
Once your test file has been OKed, you can record whatever you want, as long as it can be demonstrated to be in the Public Domain in the US (that is published before 1923).

Have fun :)
Come help us record The Deluge THE DELUGE IS BACK!
Want to hear some PREPARATION TIPS before you press "record"? Listen to THIS and THIS

Many thanks to all who posted such warm welcomes! The tips, links and hints are much appreciated. I successfully uploaded my 1 minute test with your help.

And regretfully, Masa - I speak only English. But thank you for the translation of my name. I did not know that.

With warm regards,
Hana
