This is in the MW Ready for PL

You forgot to put the file length, so I just ran it through Checker and is 8:38

Thanks!
Oh, sorry! I was following the checklist on post #1. I noticed this book's posting is missing instructions I saw on another recording I did:

Code: Select all

Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
Transfer of files (completed recordings) [b]Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
Perhaps you can add that to this post as a reminder? :)

Thanks,

Rob

Thank you!

You should always post the file length with this. I guess that got omitted from the page one instructions. Anyway, this one is 4:51. I've put it in the MW Ready for PL.

Larry,

Added that bit back to the first post. I always do some clean up on what the template generator provides, and I guess in this case I cut out too much when I was removing the section on the [no longer required] metadata.

Can I start right at the end, please: 113. In Memoriam, 114. Lord! What Is Man That Thou Art Mindful of Him!, 115. The Rhyme of the Ox-wagon and 116. The Cape of Good Hope

Thanks for joining us, Sonia! I've assigned those sections to you.
This is new to me, too, which is one of the reasons I selected this volume of poetry. I think it will be a great addition to the LV catalog. :D

Welcome, Ian!

The first thing to do is read all of the FAQ pages on volunteering. That will give you a good overview of how LibriVox works. Make sure you have your recording set up and all of the specs set, then complete your one-minute test as outlined in your welcome message. That is just a check to make sure that your recording meets LibriVox technical specs. Then select a poem that you would like to record. Post the request here, along with the name you would like to use for the LV catalog. Many of us use our real name, but you may use your screen name or other pseudonym if you like.

Let me know if you have further questions.

All the best,
Larry
