'Ello, one and all.

I'm Simon, I'm from the South-East of the UK and I've a background in drama and speech training. Hopefully I can be a good contributor because quite frankly open-source audiobooks is an amazing idea and I should have come across this site much sooner.

The closest I've done to this before was making a few recordings of me reading some Dr Seuss stories for the children of a friend of mine.

Hi and welcome.
The best starting point is submitting a one minute test and the team there will guide you on getting your setup right. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test There is no need for an expensive mic... a decent USB mic can be bought for about $20 on Amazon. Of course, you can pay a lot more for a better one, but best to see if you enjoy recording before forking out :D

When you start, it is best to read a chapter or two of established projects, but once you are familiar with the site and the process, you can branch out to any Public Domain text that interests you.

Although translated to the US, I am also from S.E. England.

Lynne
