Myths and Legends Around the World - Collection 4 (recorded in English) by Various.

You get to choose what you want to read! (All recordings in English) So long as the source is Public Domain for you, any short story or chapter that tells of legends, heroes, myths, or ancient lore, is welcome. We are looking for representations of many different cultures within each collection. If you have questions of whether a source is Public Domain for you (remember that if you live outside the U.S., public domain laws may be more strict for you), I recommend asking about that in this project's discussion before you begin recording. Simply post the question with a link to the source you've found. :) Limit of 2 sections per reader in a given Myths & Legends collection. (Lynette Caulkins)
  • Please choose and record any short myth or legendary piece in the public domain. For clarification of what it means for a work to be "in the public domain," see this section of the LibriVox Wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Copyright_and_Public_Domain. Try to stay with works that run less than 60 minutes. You may read up to 2 selections per volume in this collection. You may use 2 sections for one myth/legend if that is needed. Multiple versions are welcome, so don't worry whether someone else has recorded your topic already; we're happy to hear the version you found, too. :)

    After 12 story recordings are submitted and approved, we will catalog the collection and make it available to the public.

    Here is a list of sources that still have chapters available: Potential Sources for Myths and Legends Around the World *Please note that you are absolutely welcome to use other public domain sources. (In fact, bonus points for finding a new source, particularly if it contains cultures not yet represented on the list!)

    BC Admin ===========================================

    Genres for the project: Short Stories; Fantastic Fiction/Myths, Legends & Fairy Tales; Culture & Heritage Fiction

    Keywords that describe the book: fairy tales, myths, Legends, folklore, heroes, lore

    ============================================
  • BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: viewtopic.php?p=6430#p6430

    Set your recording software to:
    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz

    Basic Recording Guide: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording

    1. RECORD:
    • At the BEGINNING say: "[Title of Work], by [Author Name]" "This is a Librivox recording. All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit Librivox.org. Repeat the [Title of Work]."
    • At the END, say: "End of [Title], by [Author Name]"
    • If you wish, you may also say: "Recorded by...your name."
    • Please leave .5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording. Add 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
    2. EDIT and SAVE your file:
    • Need noise-cleaning? See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    • Save or export your recording to an mp3 file at 128kbs. The uploader will add the .mp3 to the end of your file name when it uploads. Please use the format shown. Your file name should have this format before you upload it:

      mlaw004_titleofwork_authorlastname_yourinitials_128kb
      (example: mlaw004_daughtersun_fraser_lc_128kb)
    • Keep the file name short! Use just a word or two to identify the title. Omit "a," "the," etc. Don't put spaces between words. Keep everything lower case. Even your initials should be lower case. The only underscores should be the separations between the mlaw volume, title, author's last name, and your initials. There are only 4 underscores in a file name!
    • Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    3. UPLOAD your recording:
    • Upload your finished recording using the LibriVox uploader:
      http://librivox.org/login/uploader. When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - copy and post it to the current nonfiction thread. If you don't post that you've uploaded your recording, the nonfiction book coordinator won't know that you did it!
      Image
    • If you have trouble reading the image above, please send a private message to any admin.
    • To upload, you'll need to select the MC, which for the Myths and Legends Around the World - Collection 4 is: linny
      After your file is uploaded, it should have this format:
      https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/mlaw004_titleofwork_authorlastname_yourinitials_128kb.mp3
      Copy that link of your uploaded file before you leave that page.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.

    4. POST the following information in this thread:
    • Title of the work.
    • Author of the work.
    • A URL link to the source from which you read (etext URL). NOTE: If posting from Gutenberg, please provide the link to the download page instead of the view of the book, e.g. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/# (where # is the Gutenberg project number for the book).
    • The link to your recording file that you copied from the uploader.
    • Length in minutes. (mm:ss)
    • If this is your first Librivox recording, we will also need your name as you would like it to appear in the LibriVox catalog, and, if you have a web page and want it linked to your name in the catalog, the URL of the web page.
    5. PROOF LISTENING AND DEADLINE FOR EDITS on recordings you have submitted:
    • The level of proof listening for the nonfiction collection is "standard." We will only proof for technical specs, repeated words or passages that the reader likely intended to edit out, misreads that change the meaning of the text, and such. For a discussion of the levels of proof listening, please see this Wiki page: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Guide_for_Proof-listeners#Levels_of_Proof-listening
    • We ask that you complete any editing requested by the Dedicated Proof Listener within two weeks of the request, or, if you need more time, that you post in this thread to request an extension. There’s absolutely no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. Extensions are, however, at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. To be fair to the other readers, sections which cannot be edited in a timely manner may be deleted from the current volume of the Myths and Legends Around the World Collection, but they can always be included in a future volume when the edits are complete.

    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!

    Any questions?
    Please post below

Lynette,
I can MC for you. I'll be back soon with the MW.

I updated this sentence for you: To upload, you'll need to select the MC, which for the Myths and Legends Around the World - Collection 4 is: linny
After your file is uploaded, it should have this format:

Thanks so much, Linny :) And the sentence fixed already, even. Spoiling me. :9:

Since the readers choose their own stories, this should be ready to go straight to readers wanted.

I'll continue PL'ing these. Tricia taught me to enter each selection's metadata as we OK them, so I'll keep doing that unless you want to do it yourself?

Hi Lynette -

Just a note to mention you need to update the sample file name. Right now it's showing as, "mlaw003_titleofwork_authorlastname_yourinitials_128kb (example: mlaw003_daughtersun_fraser_lc_128kb)", rather than as mlaw004.....

I have a selection in the works and should be able to send it along in a few days.

Hi, Astrid!

Welcome to LibriVox :)

Your contributions to this collection will be greatly appreciated. There are a few things to note, though:

- This is a group project meant for several people to contribute to. As the directions in the main post for the collection explains, each person may submit up to two sections. - - Once you've done a few chapters in group projects, you can launch a solo project of your choice from the public domain, and you'll get to do all of the sections for that. :)

- Before you do any chapter recording, make sure you do the 1-Minute Test (which isn't really a test). You should have a welcome email from LibriVox that will have information about that. Post it to the Listeners & Editors Wanted board, where it will be addressed by folks with more tech savvy than I have. This makes sure your system is set up properly for your files to work with LibriVox and Archive. You'll want to do this step before taking the time on a full chapter.

- When you've done that step, and are ready to claim your first section for recording, let us know what name you want LibriVox to use for your Catalog Reader Page. (This is the name that will show on the finished audiobooks when the public is looking at them.) Some people use their real name, some use their forum working name, and some make up a different pen name.

Please continue! :9:

I put you over in short works since it's a collection. Let me know if you would rather books. Enjoy the project.

The Coming of Sir Galahad, and How Sir Galahad Won the Red-Cross Shield are both PL OK :thumbs: :thumbs:

Thank you so much, Max! And welcome to LibriVox - I hope you have fun with us. :)

Very nicely recorded. :) Ethne is PL OK :thumbs:

The only "glitch" is that I failed to edit one of the instructions on the main post so that files would be named using _004_ instead of 003. If you have time to rename the file and upload it with the _004_, that would be awesome. Otherwise, we'll fix it at a future point.

Thank you for the submission!
