Hello~I'm new here. I saw that this collection is full, which I assume means that you are not accepting more recordings. Will there be a thread for collection 027 soon?
hello and a warm welcome to Librivox
Great to hear new voices again, and yes, there will definitely be a new multilingual project set up, in fact it might happen this weekend or next week already. We only need to correct some of these recordings and then this one will be catalogued.
I see you already passed your test
so you can start recording. For most of the projects you will see the link to the text you have to read from in the first post. This project is an open-choice project however, so it means you get to choose your own text. What language would you want to record in ? The main problem often is finding the right source, it has to be in the public domain, that means published before 1924, and depending what country you live in, the author has to be dead for some time already, often 70 years, varying from country to country though.
So it's best to first post the link to the text you want to read from here or in the next project and let us have a look at it and check whether it's safe to read from in. Not all online sites are very reliable. A good start would be gutenberg.org or archive.org. They have lots of text and are easy to check whether they are public domain.
Any more questions, you can ask here, since the thread is not closed yet
