I love to read, and am looking for opportunities to contribute my voice to this wonderful community. I think of the millions of people who are not able to read, but can follow classics and other works in the public domain through your site.

I intend to volunteer to read, but am a little nervous about the technical aspects of editing the sound.

Hi Tom and welcome.
Don't worry about not being tech savvy... few of us are when we start. 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

We have loads of tools and information about editing and volume. You can take things as slowly as you want. You mention the classics: making them available to the non-reading public (or those who like to multi-task) is a great goal but they do tend to be more challenging to read. I'd recommend looking at the Readers Wanted forums (see the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page) and select a shortish section (say around 1000 words). A hint here: children's works tend to be easier to read, so you're not worrying about too many things at once. And please don't be afraid to ask questions -- I've not come across anyone here who bites 8-) -- we were all new once.
