The Ontario Readers: Fourth Book by Various ( - ) .

Quote:
An English book published by the Minister of Education for Ontario in 1909. This reader features various pieces of Poetry and Prose by well known authors of the time. ( David Lawrence)


    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/18702

    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      Please follow any section notes in the MW. Do not read the illustration captions. :D

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. 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)
      • "Chapter [number] of The Ontario Readers: Fourth Book. 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]"
      • Say:
        "The Ontario Readers: Fourth Book, by Various . [Title of Chapter]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter x]"
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

        For poems and prose sections less than 800 words, you may use the short disclaimer that we typically use for poems.
        START of recording (Intro)
        • ["Chapter [number] of The Ontario Readers: Fourth Book. Recorded for LibriVox.org by [your name]" (If you do not wish to say your name in the recording, you can just say "Recorded for LibriVox.org")
        • Say:
          "[Title of Chapter]"


        END of recording
        • At the end of the section, say:
          "End of Chapter [number]. This recording is in the public domain"

          If you read the last section, say (in addition):
          "End of The Ontario Readers: Fourth Book "


        There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

        Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
      • AFTER recording
        Need noise-cleaning?
        Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

        Save files as ontarioreaders_###_various_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ### is the section number
        (e.g. ontarioreaders_001_various_128kb.mp3) (e.g. ontarioreaders_101_various_128kb.mp3) - *we need the 3 digits for proper file order. :wink:
      • ID3 tags (Version 2.30) ID tags - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloging stage.

        Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
        • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
          Image
          (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
        • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: aradlaw
        • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
        • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.


        Any questions?
        Please post below

Thank you, David. I've taken the liberty of listening to your Section 00 Acknowledgements, and you can mark it PL OK.

Oh, well, since I got my feet wet on this, you can put me in as DPL if you need one.
