The Citizen's Almanac by U.S. Department of Homeland Security 2007.


Quote:
New citizens of the United States were given this pamphlet when they became citizens. The Citizens Almanac contains information on the history, people, and events that have brought us where we are today as a beacon of hope and freedom to the world. The Almanac has information on citizen's rights and responsibilities, the history of our anthems, court decisions, as well as other historical documents. ( Craig Campbell)



    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://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/005554911
    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: Word Perfect Proof Listening


      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!

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      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)
      • "The Citizen's Almanac" Section [number] [name of section] This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
        for example for Section 2 you would read for the Intro "The Citizen's Almanac" Section 2, The Rights and Responsibilities of US Citizens"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • Say:
        "The Citizen's Almanac: Fundamental Documents, Symbols, and Anthems of the United States, by U.S. Department of Homeland Security." Section 2

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Section #]"
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of The Citizen's Almanac: Fundamental Documents, Symbols, and Anthems of the United States, by U.S. Department of Homeland Security."

      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    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.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      citizensalmanac_##_usdepartmentofhomelandsecurity_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. citizensalmanac_01_usdepartmentofhomelandsecurity_128kb.mp3)

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloging stage.
      Transfer of files (completed recordings) [b]Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

I will set this up for you in a few minutes. Looks like a great read. :thumbs:
Edit: is this a solo or a group project? It appears to be a group but just want to be sure.

I notice this has a chapter on King's I Have A Dream speech. If it is the actual speech, you're probably going to run into trouble from his estate's lawyers, the same way Project Gutenberg did.

The reading has excerpts from the King speech. The project is a group project.

Thanks Phil
Craig.

It looks like The Citizen's Almanac is already recorded so I'll withdraw this project.

There is no harm in making another version, especially with diferent readers having the chance to read this great information.
But you may certainly withdraw. If you do, I may just offer it myself. In any case, let me know, eh? :D

OK, well then I will set it up as a group project. I did indeed record this because I felt so strongly about the documents and sentiments included. Very important stuff. Sorry to disappoint you and I hope you will volunteer to read a section or two. Image

It looks like the one you read before was 2014 - the one I linked to was 2007. I wonder how much it changed in 7 years.

Craig, have you decided to continue as the Book coordinator for this? That would be great. But if not that is fine too.

That is great Craig. Will you be Proof Listening or should we advertise for a DPL?
