hello Briney, welcome to this project. I can certainly reserve you the sections for the time being, but please before you launch into this, have a look at the feedback to your one-minute-test: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=80429 There are still some issues on the technical side which need to be corrected. Please report back to that thread, so Linny can have another listen.

As soon as you get the ok on your test, please let me know, then I can assign you the sections officially and also open your reader page for you. The sections will be on hold for you for one month from now, time to sort out your test.

Good luck :)

Hi,
I'd like to record section 29.
I'm new to LibriVox and have already submitted my one-minute-test. The result may be published under my name Davi Bicudo.
Thanks!

hello Davi, and welcome to this project :) I see your test has been approved by Adrian. Maybe you want to check the results (about the echo) a bit still, but you're ready to roll.

I will assign you section 29 and I hope you are having fun. Please read the first post carefully where you find all the details about intro/outro and correct filenaming. :)

I see Leni already opened your reader page, so you don't have to repeat your reader name with each claim. This is the link to your personal site: https://librivox.org/reader/14440

If there are any questions still, don't hesitate to ask.

Nicely read! :)

Just a technical issue: The volume is too high, coming in at 92.7 dB.
Our target is 89 dB with an acceptable range of 86-92 dB, so this is somewhat above this.
If you are using Audacity, just use the Amplify function and set it for at least -3 dB to get it in range.

Let us know if you need any help with this.
