Hello Kristen,
I'm reading my chapters and I notice some of them are purple which is fine, but some of Albert's chapters are highlighted in a purple bar-line making it hard to see the text. Is there a different color Albert can be for those chapters?

Baroness Danglars, Chapter 67, with the line fixed. I re-recorded that sentence, but I'm afraid it will stand out too much, sounding completely different than the rest. Let me know if I should re-do the whole chapter - it's only 5 minutes!

Quite frankly, the job of doing that is just way to big. Every part of the line has to be changed, one at the time. It took me a month to mark everything the first time around, and the only reason it didn't take more was that I was sick at the time, and stayed home for two weeks.

I have found that highlighting the text can help; it makes the color a little softer

Hi, as this is a play, you claim a full part. Which means you would have to read Old man chapters 55, 56, 63 and 64

0:13

...Cicerone 2 (chapter 114)

Is it all right to double up in this project? If so, I would claim Valet 2 / Hamlet / A man in chapters 69, 72, and 77 as well.

Thanks!
As long as you are not in the same chapter or have two major parts, you can double up as much as you want! There are so many parts in this, that without that it would take even longer than it allready is:P The parts are paired as they are mostly to make it easier to pair up than anything else.

Hello!

I would like to help with your reading. I am a recent volunteer but I have read some of the Old Man dialogue and would like to give that a try. If you don't have anything more urgent you would like to have read.

Thank you for your consideration
Test topic: 1-Minute Test

Welcome to LibriVox! Thanks, I will sign you up for the old man. What Cataloge name would you like to have?

As this is a Dramatic Reading, here's a few tips to make a great recording.
First, try and make sure you have as little background noise as possible. Follow the tips here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noise_Cleaning.
Second, when recording a part, think of it as having a conversation. How would you naturally speak? read the text and see how the character reacts to the things around him, and if it doesn't say, then try to imagine it yourself. Let the reactions sound in your voice. A line can be read in extremely different ways, depending on if the character is sad or happy, so just remember to pay attention to the text and what is going on around him.
Third, when you edit after you have recorded (you will edit, we all do), leave at least 3-4 seconds between the lines, so that it will be clear when I edit where the break is.


At the Newbie Guide to Recording: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording,you can see how to set up your computer to record.

If you'd like to introduce yourself to the community, you can do se here: http://forum.librivox.org/viewforum.php?f=17

An overview of how Librivox works can be found here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/How_LibriVox_Works

There are numerous ways to volunteer here. An important one is proof-listening, which consists of checking someone's recording for errors. If you'd like to give that a try, you can find lots of information here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Guide_for_Proof-listeners
One of our volunteers has created a number of videos that you might find helpful to learn more about the workings of Librivox. You can find a listing of those here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/User:Philchenevert

Also to point out to professional (or aspiring) Voice Over artists, all our recordings are put back into the public domain which means sometimes they are sold on ebay, etc. Have a look at this page which describes our Public Domain policy: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Copyright_and_Public_Domain

I hope you have fun and please, don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
