Can I read The Brown Pelican?

Thanks,

I see you have an "OK" on your test recording so you are welcome to record for this project.
I do need to know, however, exactly how you would like to be listed in the LiibrVox catalog -- real name, pseudonym or any nickname you wish. This is how you will be credited for all of your LV work.

Also, it is a lot easier for us if you include the Section number from the Magic Window when making a request.

Anyway, welcome aboard!
You have Section 22 to record.

Thank you! I will use section number next time. I would like to be credited as Lily Kuntz. Here is section 22:

Hello, section 9, please; I've already asked to claim it, but a test was needed before starting claiming a task.
Here is a link to my test:

Just letting you know: Chapter 1 in the text is missing pages 8 and 9. Can you give me another source?

How did I not see that? :shock:

There is also another scan on Archive that seems to be intact.

I'm going to change the link in the header.

Thanks, Jo, for finding the Hathitrust scan too.

I didn't know what the apology was for . . . . but, it's cute and I think we'll leave it. :lol:

Chapter 3 was beautifully read - you have a nice and clear voice. I did, however, pick up a lot of background noise throughout. Running it through the Checker app showed it was over 44dB. A run through the noise reduction feature in Audacity or equivalent in whatever program you are using will clean that up nicely (I tested it). You also have a little too much silence, about 0.5 seconds, at the start, it should be between 0.5 and 1 second in length.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing more of your recordings. :D

Hi all! I am new to LibriVox :")
Could I get section 14 and 15 please?
(I actually jumped the gun a little and recorded section 14 already while I was waiting for my account registration to be approved by mods, and then saw in the threads above that the 1 minute test was required first. Since I already have 14 recorded, should I just upload that? Or go back and record the 1 minute test and wait for that to be ok'd?)
