Hello Riccardo,

Well read. This meets librivox standards. Proof Listen OK. :thumbs:

Advisory: There is a noticeable room echo. You can reduce this by recording in a room that has a lot of soft furnishings (e.g. carpet, bed). I hung cheap removal blankets on the walls and ceiling of my shed to create an acoustically dead space for recording. You can also reduce it by speaking closer to the microphone.

If you want to upload a new version and quote this message in your reply, I'll get a notification and will go in and re-check.

If you haven't already, you might spend some time browsing through the LibriVox Wiki. It contains a wealth of great information that you'll find useful and informative about who does what, and various technical aspects.

Then spend some time becoming familiar with the forum and looking for projects that you think you'd enjoy working on. Just jump right in wherever it feels comfortable. Most of all, always have fun. You'll find lots of interesting material to record. If you're like me, you'll also discover you're learning a lot in the process and being exposed to books I otherwise wouldn't have opened or known about. You'll be contributing to an interesting project and interacting with a lot of fun and varied fellow LibriVox volunteers in the process.


Thank you again for participating in Librivox
