Hello again, Yoko san

Once you finish your one minute test, you can start recordings.
My advice is to record a weekly poetry. You will learn the LibriVox system.
Then let's start Japanese recordings.
There are several Japanese books at gutenberg.org.

My buddy Rob has been telling me for years that I should begin my study of the Japanese language -- who knows, listening to your share at Librivox may be just the motivation I need. Welcome!

Masa san
Thank you for your link.It would be helpful to understand how to record and upload.
But l do not think I will record neither poetry or story in English. I would like to do something Japanese work. Anyway thank your advice.

I have anther concern if I would try one minute test, I have to record some words in English!!
It is hard for me. I am not good at English pronunciation!!! This is my weakness.

By the way I heard one of your work "kazaetatinu".l like it.

Yoko-san,

the test does not judge you on your English at all. We just need to know that your microphone and recording setup is good, and that you can make recordings that we can use. Don't worry about pronunciation!
Cheers,
Ava.

It was 5 years ago. But I did my one-minute test in Japanese. Feel free to record the one-minute test in Japanese.

Morning Yoko san,

Take it easy. There isn't an official translation in Japanese. I translated the Peter Piper by myself.
You can just translate it.

Cheers,
Masa

You know a difficult expression.
Here's the link.

The English text is
"People were pleased to find that Peter Piper had picked a couple pages for fable fans at LibriVox. Thankful that this was Thursday the thirtieth, the Piper anticipated forum fun and a wonderful weekend of recording! This is a test by YOURNAME. Had it been an actual LibriVox contribution, it would have been a Public Domain text, previously published and probably interesting." (Leave the mic running for 3-5 seconds at the end, where you don't say anything.)

Cheers,
Masa
