Overruled by George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950).

(To Follow )
    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3830
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

      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.



      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!

Ooh, interesting. Only a few weeks out of UK copyright!

Although it's only a single-act, it could make a good stand-alone recording if you are going to include Shaw's lengthy preface. If you don't already have someone in mind, I'd volunteer to do the preface and the stage directions.

Hi, I would love to do section 0 The Lady/Mrs Juno,
However I have not attempted a play before. Could you advise as to whether I read brackets and stage direction? Also it is the usual 0.5-1 sec silence at the beginning and 5 secs at the end of each line? As it is only 1 act I'm assuming that it's just one long file. Thanks.

Hi and thank you for claiming. Please can you let me know how you would like your name to appear in the catalogue. It can be your real name, your forum name or any other pseudonym. Thanks

When you read for a play you just read the lines which are assigned to your character. Someone else will read the stage directions and words in brackets.

You will just produce one file as you say it is only one act.

Please leave at least 3 to 4 seconds between each line to allow for easier editing later on.

The silence is good to have there but is not as strict as it is for a chapter in a book as your final file will be edited together with other files and the silence will get sorted then. Hope that all makes sense but please don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions.
