Women of Achievement by Benjamin Griffith Brawley (1882 - 1939).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/women-of-achievement-by-benjamin-griffith-brawley/
Quote:
This volume contains biographies of Harriet Tubman, Nora Gordon, Meta Warrick Fuller, and two other brave women. (to be edited) ( kathrinee)






    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!): https://archive.org/stream/womenofachieveme00brawrich#page/n5/mode/2up
    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!

      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz

    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Section [number] of Women of Achievement. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "Women of Achievement, by Benjamin Griffith Brawley. [Chapter # (or preface, as the case may be), [Chapter title]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter]"
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    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 new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

Just clarifying..
Shouldn't we say Section at the beginning of intro and Chapter at the end as there are "chapters" in the book.

Also, I believe 128kb needs to be added to file name.

Sections 3 adn 5 are perfectly PL OK! Thank you :clap:

I just realized that I set up this book in an unneccessary complicated way (section numbers and chapter numbers don't correspond). Sorry about that.

Good reading in section 4 :)

A few PL notes:
4:30 - repeat "After six weeks... After six weeks of earnest work"
10:41 - repeat "Her girls have gone into many spheres of life and have regularly made themselves useful .. Her girls have gone into many spheres of life and have regularly made themselves useful"

Also, you might want to pass the recording through the noise cleaner once -- there is more background noise than I normally hear in your recordings :)

Good job, though!
