  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/30759
  • 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 ===========================================

    Genres for the project: Family Life; Literary Fiction; Romance

    Keywords that describe the book: christian fiction, christian romance

    ============================================
  • 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):
    • "Chapter [number] of Exit Betty. 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:
      "Exit Betty, by Grace Livingston Hill. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Exit Betty by Grace Livingston Hill. 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]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • 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 Exit Betty, by Grace Livingston Hill. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename exitbetty_##_hill_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. exitbetty_01_hill_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.

Yes, that full description is what is needed. :) Someone will be along to set this up for you. I just took on a more complicated project, and my MC plate is full. It won't take long to get an MC.

I double checked your template, and it looks good. You could probably go ahead and start recording if you like, then start uploading once you get an MC.

Hi, Elisabeth!

I will MC this project for you and set it up shortly. This is your first solo, right? Have you edited a Magic Window before?

EDIT: Obviously no to my second question. :) I will PM you the instructions shortly.

Kristine :)
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

Do you have a DPL in mind? I would enjoy listening.

While we are sorting out things still behind the scenes, I'll move this to the proper place - the solos forum.

Fantastic! I will listen either later today or tomorrow. Have you figured out how to get into/use the Magic Window yet?

Sounds great! I haven't figured out how to get into the MW yet. Each time that I try to login, I get a message telling me that I am not authorized. :(

Hmm.. weird. Just to make sure, are you trying to log in using your forum username and password, or have you gone through the steps to set another password (well it can be the same one, but you just have to reset it if that makes sense)?

I've gone through the steps and set up a new/separate password on the Librivox Workflow page. I've tried re-doing it, re-starting my computer, everything I could think of in case it's some type of glitch.

Bizarre. I have no idea what it could be. Maybe Kristine will have an idea? Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
