Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz (1852 - 1915). Translated by Helena Frank (1872 - 1954)

Volunteers outside the USA: Helena Frank died in 1954. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
A collection of short stories written originally in Yiddish and later translated into English. These stories, published under censorship in Russia from 1875 to 1900, provide an illuminating portrayal of the harsh life conditions for Russian Jews. ( Elsie Selwyn)
  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/37242
    .
  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

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

  8. AFTER recording
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    storiesandpictures_##_peretz_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. storiesandpictures_01_peretz_128kb.mp3)
    .
  9. Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    Transfer of files (completed recordings) 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.

:D Thank you so much! (Definitely let me know if it ever gets distracting, though - I know what I like to listen to in audiobooks, but I truly have next to no idea what I'm doing from my end! :oops:)

Speaking of not knowing how this all works, I'm not sure if I should just sign up to read from the start in a chunk, or wait and hope we get some different voices for the different stories! :hmm: For now I'll claim sections 5 and 9, and see what happens. :)

Alright! I’ll put those claims in the MW. You can claim as much or as little as you want. I’m sure someone else will come around and claim eventually :D

Hello,
Please review audio recording for Section 7: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_07_peretz_128kb.mp3 Time: 04:24
By the way, I am from Northern Ireland, but I am presently recording in Benidorm, Spain. Are there restrictions to copyright law?
I look forward to hearing back from you.
Kind regards,
Chad
