Hi and welcome to Librivox!
There are a few things to do before you get started.
You will need to complete a one minute test - this is to check your specs are up to Librivox standards, and if not, you'll be given hints on how to remedy that. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
Please post your test in the Listeners Wanted forum (see the dropdown at the bottom of the page) for the speediest response. Waiting for the OK may seem tedious, but can save time in the long run.
You will also need to be added to the catalog of readers. I will add you using your forum name, but if you prefer your real name or a pseudonym let me know. We can also link to a personal blog or website. If you click on your name in the Magic Window, you will see your own personal catalog page.
Be sure to read the first post - all the info you need is there, but if anything doesn't make sense, just ask. The wiki (see the top of the page) has bundles of info too.
Lynne

Hello,
I'm sorry but I am just going to relinquish The Kremona Violin story instead of asking for an extension. Maybe someone else would enjoy reading it who has more time than I do right now.
Thanks~

I have been trying to upload my 1 Minute test with the librivox username and password but I am getting no joy. I really do not know what to do anymore. I have no idea how to find the MC folder where I can then upload to get the link because when I click on their name it tells me to log in even though I logged in using the lv username.

Have you read these instructions? https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Newbie_Guide_to_Recording
Once you open the upload page, you will see a drop-down menu with all the MCs listed. Scroll down to near the bottom (just under the dotted line) and you will see 'tests' -- that is what you should select for your test.
If you continue to have problems, I suggest you ask for help here: viewforum.php?f=23

The light just came on in the early hours of the morning. I copied the link to the Listeners and Editors Wanted and am now awaiting feedback. Whew!

I am very sorry about this but may I please be released from reading section 1. I am new and it is quite lengthy. I think I should start smaller.

Not a problem. That is a good idea... I'd recommend around 1000 words for a first recording. You might also consider looking at children's works... the language and sentence structure tend to be less convoluted! Once you're comfortable with the whole process, you can tackle more challenging pieces 8-)
