Thank you for your interest in this project.
We do, however, request that our new readers first complete a one-minute test recording to check out all of your technical specifications and any reading issues.

New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!

Among the useful information there you will find instructions for completing your test recording. Once you have the "OK" on that, post again here and you are free to record for this project. Let us know how you would like to be credited in the LibriVox catalog - real name, pseudonym or other nickname.

Since I need fast turn around on these orphan sections, I'll keep this open until you have the above completed and I hear back from you.

Greetings -

Well, we have some work to do with this one.

The actual reading part is OK. No problem there.

There are 57 seconds of silence before the actual reading begins that needs to be removed.

And, the volume level comes in at 78.8 dB compared to our lower limit of 86 dB. It will need to be boosted; hopefully without any distortion of the audio.

Hang in there. Like a good number of things, LibriVox has a bit of a learning curve. Once mastered, it gets easier and easier to get recordings right.

Thanks much. Feel free to ask for assistance in fixing your recording.
