I just noticed that this claim was made a couple of weeks before I claimed. I haven't recorded the servant yet and if you want to move it to Kristin I'm ok with that.

And there I go, completely missing the part where you wanted the servant too... :oops:

Guys, sorry, I saw this, was gonna change it, then completely forgot about the whole thing. I don't really have an excuse, but I haven't really been well the last couple of months, so my thoughts have been all over the place. It's changed now.

Hi there,
I'm new and would love to do a reading, please - are there any parts left? I see Lady Wild is Open, but is that a mistake? There doesn't appear to be a link to any text?
Apologies if I'm getting it confused!

Welcome to LibriVox! Lady Wild is open if you want it:) If you scroll further down in tge magic window, you will see that in the sections for the acts themselves there are links to the texts. What Cataloge name would you like to have?

Please make sure you complete the "1 Minute Test" for review before you start actively recording any chapters for projects. This is NOT an audition, but a way to check to make sure all your technical settings are correct, your volume loud enough, etc. You will find the information for the 1-Minute Test Recording here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test. The instructions also tell you how to upload your test and then post in the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum so someone can give you feedback on it.

Also, 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!

Hi Kristinj
Thank you so much for your reply. On looking at the part, I think it wiser for me to do a little practise before I jump in, so I won't claim it. I appreciate all the info though and I'll pop by to see how the project is going when I get a bit more confident.
Cheers,
Dani
