Home Geography for Primary Grades by C. C. Long ( - 0).

This project is now compete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/home-geography-for-primary-grades-by-c-c-long/
Lessons and exercises for young children, exploring map and compass, mountains and rivers, trees and flowers, wind and rain, and more. (Summary by Sarah Jennings)
    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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/12228
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

      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!

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      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)
      • "Lesson [number] of Home Geography for Primary Grades. 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:
        "Home Geography for Primary Grades, by C. C. Long. Lesson [number], [lesson title]."

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Lesson [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 Home Geography for Primary Grades, by C. C. Long."

      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 new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      homegeographyprimarygrades_##_long_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. homegeographyprimarygrades_01_long_128kb.mp3)
    9. Example ID3 V2 tags
      (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
      Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
      Artist: C. C. Long
      Title: ## - [Section title]
      Album: Home Geography for Primary Grades

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

Hi Lizzy - welcome to LV! It's strongly recommended to do a 1-minute test (as explained in your welcome email) so you know you set-up is correct before you embark on a whole section. I'll save chapter 22 for you in the meantime.

Yup in my 'things to do first' list... but I do have a couple questions before I do anything else - I haven't been able to find any answers anywhere else so 1. the test doesn't need to be posted anywhere does it? and I was looking over the passage and I was wondering, we read it all, to the 'assignment/questions' at the end, right?

thanks

I think it's all in your welcome email, but yes, the test needs to be posted in this forum: viewforum.php?f=21 If you just upload it, no one will know it's there! Use the LV uploader, which will give you a URL, and then post the URL.

For this project, yes, please read any assignments, questions, exercises, etc. Thanks!

Alrighty, I feel like I did read that somewhere - probably the email. Sorry, been awake about 24 hours now.

thanks for the answers.

Hi everyone,
For anyone who may have started recording, I just changed "chapter" to "lesson" in the intro and outro.
