Are we still doing this thing? Because it is a brilliant idea.

And, FWIW, I get about 80 hits a month on my sample-file ... so people are interested. :D

Please would you add me to the wiki?

Name: Carol Box
Location: Surrey, South East UK
Accent: RP
Notes: A film director friend described my voice as light husky, bright yet mellow, compassionate and passionate, flowing...but I think he had an ear infection at the time! My first solo, a book of fairy tales, involved a cast of many character voices.

Sample: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/rg/200dickensvol4_17_dickens.mp3

Thank you,

Carol

Oooh, do you have a catalogued file you can link to as a sample, Carol -- we'd rather not have eighty people a month downloading anything from the uploader. ;)

Not to mention that when the project is catalogued the link will not work :D

I am so sorry, Cori and Anne :oops:

I am still not too familiar with the workings of these things.
Having listened to my earlier readings of poems I was quite horrified :shock:, but the Child's Hymn I could live with, and I'm not in a rush - just saw that someone had posted there yesterday.

I shall re-apply once the collection is catalogued.

Thank you

Carol

I can pop you in now, Carol, without sample ... just post back here when you want it added. :)

(Or, if you're curious about downloads, you could put the file online yourself, using a free service like http://ge.tt and then you get a bit of information about numbers. Though at the moment it just gives an overall count, no detail.)

Thanks Cori,

Ah! I was wondering how you knew yours is viewed so many times a month!

Thank you.

Carol :)

And done, both Carol and catrose (can you both please check your details, I'm not always spot-on with my copy&pasting.)

Carol, I host my file through my website, so I get monthly stats. I don't look very often, but I do like to know these things from time to time. :D Mainly because the file isn't linked from anywhere else, so I know it is just visits from this page.

Can we sign on to the Accent Table if our recordings aren't actually up yet (because the book/dramatic reading isn't completed yet)?
