Sea Stories for Wonder Eyes by Mrs. A. S. Hardy (1846 - 1928).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/sea-stories-for-wonder-eyes-by-mary-earle-hardy/
Water is fascinating! Which child is not delighted by the sea shore, by rivers, even by puddles in the street? This little book explains to children that a river can cut through rock to weave its way to the sea, how sand is made, and how fish can breathe underwater. Grown-ups may learn some new things, too! ( Carolin)
    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/details/seastoriesforwon00hard
    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)
      • "Chapter [number] of Sea Stories for Wonder Eyes. 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:
        "Sea Stories for Wonder Eyes, by Mrs. A. S. Hardy. [Chapter]"

      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]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of Sea Stories for Wonder Eyes, by Mrs. A. S. Hardy. "

      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 latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      seastories_##_hardy_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. seastories_01_hardy_128kb.mp3)
    9. Example ID3 V2 tags (just leave these blank!)

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
      Transfer of files (completed recordings) 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.
      • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader

Hi cris, welcome to librivox and to this project!

You are welcome to participate in this project. I have signed you up, your personal catalog page is here https://librivox.org/reader/13097 :)

Ten sections is a bit much for a first claim, although these sections are short. I have now signed you up for the first five sections. Once you have submitted these, you are very welcome to claim more! Is that okay?

Thanks also for getting started with the test recording :thumbs: someone will give you feedback shortly. Once you have the okay on your test, you can get started on recording. Thank you!

Hi Carolin,

That sounds like a great plan! Thank you. I will wait until I receive feedback on my test and have had the chance to make any necessary adjustments before proceeding.

Have a good one,

Cris

Hello my name is Wesley, I would like to volunteer to read as many chapters as possible. This story is something my children and I would enjoy reading together and would be a treat for them to hear their dad reading it in an audio book form. I look forward to helping as much as I am needed. Thank you.

Wesley S.
