To be completed at a later date ( )



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/50209
  • 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!

    BC Admin

  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of The Mystery of the Sycamore. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "The Mystery of the Sycamore, by Carolyn Wells. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Mystery of the Sycamore by Carolyn Wells. 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:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • 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 The Mystery of the Sycamore, by Carolyn Wells. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.
  • Example filename mysteryofthesycamore_##_wells_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. mysteryofthesycamore_01_wells_128kb.mp3)

I am so glad. I won't be starting it until I finish "Red Money" and I just need to edit last chapter & we're on our way.

Thanks again,
Sharon :clap:

Hi John,

Sharon set this up as a solo project SHE is recording; she is not looking for other readers. However, if you would like to do a solo project of your own, find a book you would like to record and then head off to this link to find the instructions for setting it up: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=13513

At first, I saw the "rkilmer" and the first sentence and thought, "Wow, Richard has finally lost it!" :lol:

Chapter 1 is PL OK!

I see what you mean, I'll remember this book was written by a woman and hope that outdated viewpoint changes in this story. :)

Hi,
I've PL'ed chap 2 and there's a difference you may want to check:

at 22:31 heard “irrespectful” in “will be entirely irrespective of the character or personality of that young man."

You can leave it as is, if you prefer. The rest of the file is very good. Interesting chapter.

Betty
