Hello all,

I'm new to Librivox and I was reviewing some of the projects that are open and I was wondering if there is a common practice for reading (or ignoring) footnotes and descriptions or commentary of illustrations?

Thanks!

Yes there is but it differs depending on the project (as do many LV things). you need to check with the project co-ordinator. Very rarely people do try to "record" pictures. And usually only in a solo. The caption beneath a picture is seldom read
But footnotes are or are not read, depending on the text and the BC who is running the project

I wish there were hard and fast rules, but what I have found is that it all depends.

Your Book Coordinator will be able to help with this, however.
