Manners and Rules of Good Society - Or, Solecisms to be Avoided - by a Member of the Aristocracy.

The title of this work sufficiently indicates the nature of its contents. The Usages of Good Society relate not only to good manners and to good breeding, but also to the proper etiquette to be observed on every occasion.
(Quote: First sentence of "Introductory Remarks")
The abbreviation viz. (or viz without a full stop) is short for the Latin videlicet, which itself is a contraction of the Latin phrase videre licet, meaning "it is permitted to see". (Wikipedia)
  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 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.
    .
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/files/33716/33716-h/33716-h.htm
    .
  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.

  6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: viewtopic.php?p=6430#p6430
    .
    Set your recording software to:
    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    .
  7. DURING recording:
    No more than 0.5 to 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)
    • "Chapter [number] of "Manners and Rules". 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:
      "Manners and Rules [Chapter-Title]"

    END of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of Chapter [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: Manners and Rules of Good Society; Or, Solecisms to be Avoided by a Member of the Aristocrazy,"

    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.
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    mannersandrules_##_anon_128kb.mp3
    (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. mannersandrules_01_anon_128kb.mp3)
    .
    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

hi storygirl,

wow :shock: thank you! :D

while i are glad to see your claims, please wait until we leave the launchpad.

in book suggestions, there were two people interested in 3 chapters
namely:
Dwarika: 2
Jmbau13: 3, 33

so, your claims should work for 1, 7, 9, 14, 26 and 37
... but it is too early, since we cannot enter them at this state, without mc and mw.

but i will note your claims in the first post and come back to you as soon as possible, if you are ok with that :-)

thank you and cheers

Sure, that's fine. It's always hard to tell because some people don't mind claims as soon as the project is posted, and for others it can be overwhelming. I never know if I should wait on it and take a risk! :)
