ALONE IN THE CARIBBEAN by Frederic Fenger ( - 0).
Sailing in the Caribbean in the early 1900's. ( )
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/aloneincaribbean00feng
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin
  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Section [number] of ALONE IN THE CARIBBEAN by FREDERIC A. FENGER. 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:
      "ALONE IN THE CARIBBEAN by FREDERIC A. FENGER, by Frederic Fenger. Section [number, chapter name, part x]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Section [number] of ALONE IN THE CARIBBEAN by FREDERIC A. FENGER by Frederic Fenger. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title, part x]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of Section [number]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of ALONE IN THE CARIBBEAN by FREDERIC A. FENGER, by Frederic Fenger. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  4. Example filename alone_##_fenger_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. alone_01_fenger_128kb.mp3)
  5. 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

    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Hello!

Two things:

1) Would you be willing to read from this scan instead? https://archive.org/details/aloneincaribbean00feng While the site you linked to has nice html, we can't determine if they've changed any of the text. This scan guarantees it's the 1917 edition. :)

2) One minute test, please! Here's a link to it: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test I see in a previous post you said you'd be doing it; perhaps it escaped your mind.

Hi Trisha,
To answer your questions:
1. Yes
2. No, it hasn't slipped my mind even though my mind is getting slipperier and slipperier. I'm just settling in to my winter Quarters on the Lovely island of Montserrat. Learning about Audacity and my microphone. Will have lots of questions.

Moving to Book Suggestions for now, to keep the Launch Pad tidy. Once your test is OK and you're ready to begin, post in this thread again and we'll move it back to the Launch Pad for you. :)

Hello out there,
Sorry for the delay. Can I still do this reading?

Sure! I'll move it back to the Launch Pad.

Looking back at your old posts, I can't tell if you were able to iron out any recording issues. Your test recording thread has been deleted (we clear them out after about 6 months or so). If you didn't get a green light on it, I'd suggest posting a new test recording, so that you can be ensured of a quality recording when you start this. :)

Franklin,
I'd be happy to MC this for you. I'll get things set up and be back with further instructions.

OK, Your MW is set up.

For a solo project, you are the Book Coordinator. That means you fill out the Magic Window and post your links and times in the window when you upload your files.

You'll need to start by logging into the magic window. Instructions are in the BC How-to; and this is a more detailed version of the First Login instructions (with pictures!) Please be sure to read all of the BC How To document, as that will give you more information on your role as a BC.

Next, you'll need to start entering section (or chapter) titles. I've entered the first couple to get you started.

Then you are ready to start recording. When you upload a section, it's your responsibility to add the link and duration (mm:ss) to the Magic Window. Link from the uploader goes in the "listen URL" column, duration goes in the "notes" column. Then be sure to post in the thread that a new section is ready for PL so your DPL knows there is something new.

We won't worry about a DPL just yet - folks often see new projects and volunteer to listen before anything is posted. If no one sees this, we will advertise once you have a section or two ready to listen to.

If you have questions, or if you have any trouble with the instructions in the BC how to, please post and we'll work through it together. There is a bit of a learning curve when you do your first solo. You've picked a nice size book - not too long and something that you are interested in, so it should be a manageable and enjoyable process for you.

Welcome Dorothy! Great to have you on the team.

There are details about what to look (listen) for as you PL here (this project is "standard" PLing): http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Guide_for_Proof-listeners

After you listen to a section, you should post in the thread that you've listened and the results (PL OK, or any comments). You will also change the "status" of the file in the Magic Window.

To do that, you'll need to start by logging into the magic window. Instructions are in the BC How-to; and this is a more detailed version of the First Login instructions (with pictures!)

If you have any questions, just post in the thread and we'll work through it together.

Here goes my first PL

I guess I have to wait for a completed section. Oh my word! It's a challenge just finding my way around the magic windows etc. So I must just watch this space for a completed section??

If you go to the very top of this thread, left side above the first post there is a button to subscribe. Click that and you will get an email when Franklin posts that a new section is available.

Then you know when to stop by!

Thanks Ladies. I love your patience. I'm a bit slow about this tech stuff.
