Hello everyone from Scotland!

I've listened to a lot of you over the past few years and thought that it's high time I get involved.

Looking forward to trying my hand at narration and hopefully contributing some decent work to match what I've heard so far.

All the best,

Stu

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.

Welcome. That "for more information or to volunteer" line at the beginning of every recording aid intended to snag you. It caught me 6 years ago.

Enjoy, Todd
