Stories by Foreign Authors - Russian by Various ( - ).


All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/stories-by-foreign-authors-russian-by-various/
A collection of short stories written by Russian authors and translated into English. Includes stories by Turgevev, Tolstoi, Poushkin and Gogol. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5741
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

I'd like to try Section 4, Gogol's "St. John's Eve". ---if anyone has suggestions about any on-line resources for pronouncing Russian names/words, either audibly or phonetically, they'd be appreciated!

I haven't tried it for anything Russian but I've used Forvo.com to find pronunciations for several other languages, including French, Gaelic and Latin. I can't always find the exact word I want but I can usually find enough similar to get close. I like the site because it usually has place names and famous person's names as well as common first or last names in addition to regular words.

Thank you for volunteering. We have some Russian speaking librivoxers so if you post in the "help Wanted" forum -- there is a thread dedicated to pronunciation help. Although I've not used it for Russian, a good resource is howjasay.com
