There. I finally managed to register.
I love reading and am especially fond of poems and them being recited. I enjoy reading to other people, but have to admit that my current audience consists mainly of my two children. As a german native speaker, I am going to volunteer for german projects preferably. Of course I am looking forward to try myself as a reader, but I think of prooflistening as well (and, well, just look around, get accustomed, and see what kind of help I can offer).

Hello, Laubfrosch. :clap: Welcome to Librivox. I am a little familiar with the duties of the Proof-Listener. But I haven't tried it myself yet. So, I looked it up. Here's a Guide for Proof-listeners.

If you decided to become a reader as well (I hope you will), here are other links to help get started. :thumbs:

The first thing you should start with is to install Audacity and Checker. The second step is to record and then upload your one-minute test. Please check the following links:
