Hi all - I'm a complete newbie to audiobook narration. I recently moved with my husband from Maryland to Ohio. I used to work in government finance (a hoot, I assure you). I'm working on transitioning to a new career and I'm excited to add narration to my journey! So far, I've auditioned for a handful of books on ACX. No takers yet, but I'm not giving up! I'm excited to soak up knowledge from volunteers on this forum :D

Hello Aline (supposing that is your name)

a warm welcome to our forum. I guess audiobook narration is a bit more fun than government finance, although I have no idea :lol: There can be excitement in everything.

A good idea is to start with a one-minute test to check your technical settings. Our setting-requirements at librivox are a bit different from ACX, so make sure you change them in your editing program before you upload the test in here: viewforum.php?f=21

Once you get the official OK, you can start participating in any project on offer here. We cater for all tastes: poems, fiction, non-fiction (probably even about government finance ;) ), English, or any other language, and even drama. You'll be spoilt for choice.

Have fun on board.

Sonia
