Good evening from South Eastern Pennsylvania. I'm joining the Librivox community because I have always loved audiobooks and am now getting into narration myself. I am looking forward to working on my dramatic voice, technical skills, and e-nun-cia-tion! The work being done here is great, and it is a great thing to be a part of. Thanks very much!

Hello, Daniel!

Welcome to LibriVox! We're so happy to have you. :clap:

3 things I share in my welcome message are:
1) Checker Program. It checks all the tech specs of the recording. It will help you get PL ok in your one-minute test.
2) Replay Gain (https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Measuring_Volume_within_Audacity). if you're using Audacity.
3) A wiki with all the Instructional Videos (https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Instructional_Videos) that you might need in the future.

We're a friendly community so feel free to ask questions. Someone is sure to help you. :thumbs:
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D
