I don't know why I can't find this anywhere. I'm trying to record a short story, but I can't find the exact intro/outro wording ("This is a Librivox recording..").

Would someone please link me to the exact phrasing?

Hi Kyle

you can check the intro/outro wording in each project in the very first post. For each project it is a bit different, so you need to go check in the specific project you want to read for.

Are you reading a "random" short story ? Then I think your recording will fit in the "Short Story Collection", which you can find here:
viewtopic.php?f=19&t=68517

If you now look in the first post, right under the Magic Window, you'll see this note about the intro/outro:
•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)
"Title of Work], by [Author Name]. - 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]"

END of recording

"At the end of the section, say:
"End of [Title], by [Author Name]"
If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Please leave about 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
But remember, if you are in a different project, the wording will be a bit different. It might include the title of the project for example.

Hope this helps :)
