Hello Everyone,

I am new here and a bit nervous to start. I want to read French poetry and maybe short texts. I am in the process of getting a microphone and hopefully I will be all set up for next week end.

Hello, Valendra. Welcome to LibriVox. I was nervous when I first started. But don't be. It will feel like home in no time. :wink:

To get started you need to install both Audacity and Checker. The second step is to record and then upload your one-minute test. Please check the following links:
