Essentially, you produce a finished file as usual, editing all your errors, except:

- no standard intro/outro needed (but please say "Charlotte read by..." for the final cast list. )
- no noise reduction
- a few extra seconds between your lines (when somebody else speaks)

Usually, reading for a dramatic project goes relatively fast (if you don't choose the largest role, that is :wink:)
Hope this helps! :D
Cheers,
Ava.

OK, so... say "Charlotte read by..." at the beginning and/or end of each file I upload?

front is best, but it doesn't really matter since everything will be cut and sliced anyway. :D

Hello again Ava,
I'm still here!
I have been clearing out a bit of a backlog.
I'm planning to get at least section 1 posted this week.

OK, one quick Q:
On p.10 of section 1, there is a parenthetical note, "see Frontispiece."
I think it would be best to omit this note.
WDYT?

O -- and here is a general Q:
The Google PDF is much easier to read than the archive.org PDF.
I guess Google made a better scan.
The text is identical; it's the same book.
So is it OK if I read from the Google text?
...or, more to the point, could anyone tell the difference if I did so?? :lol:

If there are parentheticals like that one or others refering to images in the book, leave it out (or, I can cut them out during editing). I don't think there are footnotes, but you can ignore those too.

As for the text, I don't care what you're reading from; if google is easier for you to read from that's fine with me. If it doesn't match what's on archive, I'll simply make you change it. :mrgreen: :wink:
The reason we don't use google books as resource is that they often block access from outside the US; and we like to have our projects as inclusive as possible.
Cheers,
Ava.

Hi Ava,
I've just realised I'm gonna be a bit busier for a while, and won't have so much time to record, with a few more commitments than I'd like. While this seems like a really fun project, I would like to release my claim on Mamma again, sorry! I'm sure someone else will come soon and snag it up though :)

Cheers,

Here is section 1:
https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/artist_charlotte_01.mp3
Duration: 8:44

N.B.: I want to make sure this is OK before doing more sections.

N.B. also: Please confirm that the file name is correct.
...I say this because instruction #8 says:
.......AFTER recording
.......Save files as 128 kbps MP3
.......artist_[role]_[##].mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the number of the section.
Other files I have posted on various projects have "128kb." before the "mp3" -- should that apply here as well?

Thanks very much...LJB
