Hi there,
I got the OK for my 1 minute read and am ready to record! I'm interested in Sections 48 and 49 to start. Are they still available?
Thanks,
Lisa

Question: Is it kosher to record several sections together in one file with just one start and end disclaimer for the batch, or is it preferred to stick to the section divisions as I've been doing?
Thank you. I will mark these as "Ready for Spot Check".

Answer to your questions: Nope. Each section in any LibriVox project has a section number and this number will be used in the file name. This is how the project/book will be posted at our hosting site (Internet Archive) and they use the file name to put it in the right 'slot' otherwise things get all messed up. So each section needs it's own opening and closing disclaimer so that the listener knows where they are in the book and the reader knows they are putting this into the public domain. We know that it can seem very tedious and overly repetitive to say the disclaimer over and over for each section, especially if they are short, (sigh! I gotta say that again??!) but we have found it the best way. I have recorded over a thousand sections and still read the disclaimer exactly as the BC wants it read right off the screen each and every time. But then I have a tendency to skid sideways sometimes and forget important stuff. Keep asking if anything seems baffling. :thumbs:

Phil, I noticed that Lisa57 requested 48 and 49 before I did. Do you want to reassign those to her? I can pick some other ones.

Oh my goodness I completely overlooked that claim Thank you so much. Yes I will assign them to her and please do pick some others. :oops:

EDIT: What happened to your forum name? I don't remember 'hela' and I can't remove you with that name. It was hlancaster before .... Did you ask for a change? Or did I do it by mistake?

I am not sure if this is written somewhere and I missed it but I was wondering how to handle the numbered references. Do we read or make reference to them in any way?

Excellent question. I'm not sure what you are referring to but the answer is probably ignore them. There are some big numbers on the side of the text which you should definitely ignore. Please tell me which section has the references you are talking about. As a side note, LibriVox generally does not record footnotes since they are not part of the text but this is optional and each case is decided as it comes up.

Greetings!

I am new to recording on Librivox, and I would like to help with this project. I have made a 1-minute recording uploaded. Should I also post it here? Thanks!
