Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
Leave 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning.
The Dreamers by Theodosia Garrison, read for librivox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, and/or your location.]
Then read the poem:
The gypsies passed her little gate—
She stopped her wheel to see,—
A brown-faced pair who walked the road,
Free as the wind is free;
And suddenly her tidy room
A prison seemed to be.

Her shining plates against the walls,
Her sunlit, sanded floor,
The brass-bound wedding chest that held
Her linen's snowy store,
The very wheel whose humming died,—
Seemed only chains she bore.

She watched the foot-free gypsies pass;
She never knew or guessed
The wistful dream that drew them close—
The longing in each breast
Some day to know a home like hers,
Wherein their hearts might rest.
At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.
Leave 5 seconds of silence at the end.

Welcome to LibriVox Faith, good reading, but you have a number of technical items that need correcting.
- the filename does not meet our requirements (instructions are in the opening post) (there is no way of knowing the file is yours) :wink:
- the file is in stereo, we need a mono recording
- we require a bitrate of 128 kbps, with a sampling rate of 44,100 Hz, yours is 256 kbps 48,000 Hz
- there are 5 seconds of opening silence, we need only 1/2 to 1 second

( we need all the technical stuff to be correct in order to catalog the projects at archive.org)

*the volume is good at 87.9 dB. You can check your volume and other specs using our Checker program - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume in decibels on the Information tab. For your information, we look for around 89 dB (87-91 is OK)


Please review all the instructions in the opening post and upload your reading again. :D
