State of the Union Addresses by United States Presidents (1893 - 1896) by Various ( - ).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/state-of-the-union-addresses-by-united-states-presidents-1893-1896-by-various/
The State of the Union address is a speech presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, typically delivered annually. The address not only reports on the condition of the nation but also allows the President to outline his legislative agenda (for which he needs the cooperation of Congress) and national priorities. This album contains recordings of addresses from Grover Cleveland's second term. ( Wikipedia)
This is the 13th out of 27 projects. Prior addresses are found here: https://librivox.org/search?q=state%20of%20the%20union&search_form=advanced
Some stats are found here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=61256&hilit=state+of+the+union
    1. 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.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 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.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!):
      1893: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Grover_Cleveland's_Fifth_State_of_the_Union_Address
      1894: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Grover_Cleveland%27s_Sixth_State_of_the_Union_Address
      1895: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Grover_Cleveland%27s_Seventh_State_of_the_Union_Address
      1896: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Grover_Cleveland%27s_Eighth_State_of_the_Union_Address
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! 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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: Special - Please follow text while PLing. I'm not looking for word perfect. The language is sometimes awkward and following the text will help identify errors which the ear alone may not find. Linny will act as DPL


      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!

    7. DURING recording:
      Less than 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Section [number] of State of the Union Addresses by United States Presidents (1893 - 1896). 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:
        "[section title: President, date of address, and part number]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Section #]"
      • 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 State of the Union Addresses by United States Presidents (1893 - 1896)"

      There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

      128 kbps MP3
      stateoftheunion_1893_1896_##_various_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. stateoftheunion_1893_1896_01_various_128kb.mp3)

Section breakdown:
Note: If you are claiming all sections for an Address feel free to split the sections differently. Be sure to post your preferred start/stop for your DPL.

6. Grover Cleveland, December 3, 1894, part 3 - 5307 words. Read from: The report of the Secretary of the Interior exhibits the situation of the numerous and interesting branches of the public service connected with his Department. I commend this report and the valuable recommendations of the Secretary to the careful attention of the Congress.

So, the MW is in place. Linny, will you DPL yourself? I assumed so, but I'll change of course if I assumed incorrectly...

I think we might get in a bit of trouble for that however you could include it over in the Bloopers forum. :mrgreen:

Section 1 PL notes:
21:37 – word change - There being no naturalization treaty between the United States and Turkey, our minister at Constantinople has been instructed that, while recognizing the right of that Government to enforce its declared policy against naturalized Armenians, he is expected to protect them from unnecessary harshness of treatment
I hear American


Sorry for the delay, I was helping get a DR edited.
