History of New England, 1630-1649 by John Winthrop (1587 - 1649).


( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/winthropsjournal00wint/page/n15/mode/2up
  • 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!

    • Say:
      "History of New England, 1630-1649, by John Winthrop. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Section [number] of History of New England, 1630-1649 by John Winthrop. 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:

    • At the end of the section, say:

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):

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

I can set this project up for you and be your MC (meta coordinator), I'll be back in a little bit

ETA:
Here we go, we have a Magic Window (MW). As a soloist, you are your own book coordinator, and will fill out the titles in the MW and put the recordings and duration in there. Here are instructions for how to log into the MW for this first time
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxWB83bbALTQYjlENGZ0SVJUWWs
and what to do as the book coordinator
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ

I will put a tilde (~) in the topic to show that we are looking for a dedicated proof listener in this project.

I didn't know how many sections you will need for this project, so I started with 20. We can add or delete as needed.

Please try to log in to the MW and maybe fill in the title of the first few sections. The first might be Introduction, and then maybe 1630, part 1 followed by 1630, part 2 etc.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions, I'll be here! :D

Great, well done with getting into the MW and entering titles. I'll move us over to the Going solo forum tomorrow :)

Thanks :)

I got the intro section recorded but still need to do some edits before I upload it.
I'm hoping to do that sometime this coming week.

Off to a good start! Please also put the duration of the file in the Magic Window in the Notes section (I use it for reference when I catalog the project at the very end). Thank you
Kathrine
