Section 3 is the same; I started by just saying "Part 1, Section A" and then jumped straight into the text, with the subtitle "India" being the first part of that section. This book doesn't really have chapters, just parts and sections, and those sections are too long to be considered a single chapter as far as recording goes I think (just for example, part 1 section B is from page 34 to 199), so take that into consideration.

The Librivox disclaimer goes right at the start, after the announcement of what section this is in the book - as shown in the first post.

Hi, I'd like to volunteer to narrate sections 4 and 5. I have some time now and will probably have these completed within a few hours, or by tomorrow at the latest.

Thanks.

Would you please rattle off a 1-minute test before digging into these? A link to instructions is in your "Welcome" email. :)

Sure, you got them! The 1 minute test will help me though, as it ensures your volume and settings are within spec.

I'm a newbie here and just learning the ropes, so I hope I'm going about this right. I was asked to do a quick test recording, so I did, and here it is. I guess now I wait for some feedback, to make sure everything's cool?

Thanks,
Gregg

I notice you did not include a voice credit - this isn’t compulsory but most people say something. Anyway, what name do you want to appear on your catalogue page?

You’ll get quicker feedback if you post it with all the other 1 min tests on the Listener’s forum. I won’t be able to check this until I’m back on my computer.

So, I got the okay to proceed and have been going through my first chapter, and I'm running into Greek words. In these cases are we supposed to find a way to translate these ourselves, at least into characters that we can pronounce in English?

UPDATE: I found a site to translate Greek to English. Because the characters aren't digital I have to try and match the letters to a Greek keyboard, and I can't always find an exact match. Unless someone knows something I don't (e.g., Greek) it's going to be very difficult to translate into characters that can even be spoken in English.

I'll wait for some instruction on this issue before proceeding.

Here is another text source which has the Greek rendered into English script - just read it as written, being sure to pronounce every syllable phonetically: https://maritain.nd.edu/jmc/etext/hop09.htm

So for example "episteme" (knowledge) should have four syllables "Ep-pee-stay-may" (That's the French "ay" of the accented "e" in there.) I mention this because English speakers are sometimes inclined to cut short the last vowel and make it sound like "epi-steam", which isn't ideal. That said, do your best and we won't be too picky! :9:

You may also find useful howjsay.com which is a free online dictionary for pronunciation (it talks to you) or forvo.com (which includes regional and foreign language pronunciations).

Here's section 4. I'll wait until getting the okay on this before proceeding to the next chapter.
