I live in California and I found Librivox looking for ways to contribute my voice to the world. I'm currently finishing up my Masters in Education and enjoy working with children of all ages. I believe this is a great thing to give back and provide something that everything should use. Thank you for inviting me and I look forward to working with you all.

Hi and welcome. We are certainly all children back here, some older than others, playing and telling stories all the time!

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 Not an audition, just a way of making sure your equipment is set up right before you make a big recording. 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 (I use a small hand held data recorder myself and don't record on my computer.)

The videos at the top of this forum are very helpful - Phil does a great job with them. And we have a couple other useful topics stickied above as well.

When you start, it is best to read a chapter or two on established projects or take on a short role in one of our plays (I have been caught up in the plays - see my signature line), but once you are familiar with the site and the process, you can branch out to any Public Domain text that interests you.

Thanks, Todd
