Hi,
I had started recording my sections and I wanted to confirm something while I was at it. There are numbers in between the text for footnotes, so when I'm recording the footnotes should I do them all at once in the end or record them as they come in the text?
Thanks

Most people have just been ignoring the footnotes altogether, so that's probably the most straightforward solution.

Cheers,

Section 48:

Great reading - you've got a lovely, clear voice. Just one correction to make:

3:10 repeated phrase "they went away and sat down"

Cheers,
Paul

Section 49:

Well read again - there are a couple of mis-speaks but nothing major. The big problem is that The Story of the Falcon and the Locust is missing - The Twenty-Third Night of the Month contains two stories, not just the one.

Hi - I'd love to do Vol 11, Section 25, "Firuz and His Wife"; it's 900 words. This will be my first recording. Please show Diane Kalan in catalog. What a great story. I'll check back for your response, and thanks! Diane

Welcome to LibriVox, Diane. You'd be welcome to record Section 25, but before you start recording part of a book we like you to record a test piece first. This isn't an audition so much as to check that you can produce a file that meets LibriVox's technical specifications. Details are here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

I'll mark that section as allocated to you pending the 1-minute test.

I did complete the one-minute test and got the okay to sign on to projects. Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks.

Sorry - I hadn't picked up on the changed user name - it's obvious enough by eye, but not to a search box. As far as I'm concerned, you're good to go.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi!!!!!!!
I'm so sorry for the great blunders I committed recording the 49th section. I'll upload it tonight for sure along with the 50th.
Meanwhile here is the corrected 48th section (7:55).
