Hi! I am new to LibriVox, but I completed a weekly poetry reading (with the correct specs). (Also a 1 minute test, but haven't received feedback on that yet)

I would like to claim Chapter 3, please. :)
Feedback and constructive criticism are appreciated. Thanks! :)

Can I please have the remaining open sections?
Enjoy

Edit: I assigned you the 5 sections open when you claimed.
I have since orphaned 3 others 8-)
Perfect! 8 sections would be a bit much! LOL

Welcome!
Sounds like you're off to a promising start. This will be a bit longer than a poem, but, I find, less challenging (but then I'm not good at poetry :lol: ). Please read the first post, but if you have any questions, just ask.

Hi there, can I claim the remaining open sections (4 and 5)?

This is my first time recording. I'd like for my name to appear as "Heather Alexander".

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to Librivox!
There are a few things to do before you get started.
You will need to complete a one minute test - this is to check your specs are up to Librivox standards, and if not, you'll be given hints on how to remedy that. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
Please post your test in the Listeners Wanted forum (see the dropdown at the bottom of the page) for the speediest response. Waiting for the OK may seem tedious, but can save time in the long run.
You will also need to be added to the catalog of readers. I will add you using your forum name, but if you prefer your real name or a pseudonym let me know. We can also link to a personal blog or website. Be sure to read the first post - all the info you need is there, but if anything doesn't make sense, just ask. The wiki (see the top of the page) has bundles of info too.
Lynne

Great - I'm very glad!
I hope this is okay, since I am not technically a proof listener, but I was listening to chapter 7, and I noticed there is a long section that is repeated. From 3:53 - 4:18 is then repeated from 4:18 - 4:41, then it continues on. Other than that, it sounds great! :)

Generally, we ask people not to listen to files until they are catalogued, as it puts to much strain on our server. That said, since I obviously missed this, thank you.

As for being 'technically' a proof listener, all it takes is to say 'I want to proof listen' (and reading the instructions).

Okay, I am sorry about that. I did already download some other chapters' audio files, so I might as well double check those, though.

I would definitely like to help proof listen as well as recording, especially since I have a 35 to 40 minute drive to and from work most weekdays.
