Teddy's Button by Amy Le Feuvre (1861 - 1929).
( )
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/teddys-button3-by-amy-le-feuvre/
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/search/?query=teddy's+button+
    .
  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):
    • "Chapter [number] of Teddy's Button . 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:
      "Teddy's Button , by Amy Le Feuvre. Chapter [number, title]"

    .
    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Teddy's Button by Amy Le Feuvre. 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 [number, 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 Teddy's Button , by Amy Le Feuvre. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename teddysbutton_##_lefeuvre_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. teddysbutton_01_lefeuvre_128kb.mp3)

Thank you for reposting the correct things!! I’m still learning how all of this works as I’ve only done a group recording. :D

I’m new to doing a solo recording and not really sure what needs to happen next. If someone could give me a few pointers that would be great!! :)

Kylie,

I'd be happy to MC this for you. I'll get you set up and be back with some 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.

Note that passwords for the magic window and the forum are not connected. You can use the same password in both places (I think a lot of people do), but if you change it on one system, it won't affect the password on the other system.

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.

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, so it should be a manageable and enjoyable process for you.

Thank you so much for all your help! I think I have done everything I need to do in the Magic Window and I have read the BC how to link document as well. My one question is this: when I generate a link from the uploader, do I post in directly to the MW and then notify the DPL that a section is ready? I just want to make sure that I am understanding you correctly.

Also, I think I'm going to read the book in a British accent since it is set in England.

Just put the link in the MW and then make a post here in the thread letting me know there is something for me to PL. I’m subscribed to the thread so I will get notified :D
