The World’s Famous Orations, Vol. II by Various
edited by William Jennings Bryan, 1860-1925 and Francis Whiting Halsey, 1851-1919
.

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project http://librivox.org/the-worlds-famous-orations-vol-ii-by-various/
In 1906, William Jennings Bryan, himself a famous American orator, and Francis Whiting Halsey compiled a series of the most famous orations of all time. They are ordered by both geographic area and time period, ranging from Ancient Greece to their contemporary United States. This is the second volume in this series, in which the most famous speeches of great Roman statesmen are collected, including Cicero, Seneca, and Julius Caesar. ( Carolin)
    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!): https://archive.org/details/worldsfamousora00unkngoog
      You can refer to http://www.bartleby.com/268/2/ which may be easier to read, but please note that the text must be identical to that on archive.org!
    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. Footnotes: Please do read the footnotes. They should be announced with "Footnote: ... End of Footnote". Should you find a footnote entirely unintersting, check with us to see if we can omit it. Thanks!
    7. 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
    8. 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)
      • "Section [number] of The World’s Famous Orations, Vol. II. 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:
        "The World’s Famous Orations, Vol. II. [Speech title] by [Orator]."

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Section [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 The World’s Famous Orations, Vol. II, edited by William Jennings Bryan and Francis Whiting Halsey."

      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    9. 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
      orations2_##_various_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. orations2_01_various_128kb.mp3)
    10. Example ID3 V2 tags (just leave those blank!)

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

Hi folks! Here's section 23:

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/orations2_23_various_128kb.mp3
Run time is 4:55.

I’ve actually recorded section 24 as well, but I wanted to check first that I’ve recorded the lead-in the way it’s intended to be. The way I’m reading the directions, we’re not reading the section titles quite precisely as they’re written, and they’re followed pretty swiftly by the first footnote; is that right?

Thanks in advance!
~~Owen

That would be do helpful, thank you haley! As you can see in the magic window, section 15 is the only section that needs pl at the moment. It would be great if you could listen to it, and I think you will find it interesting too. You can get started right away :)

Do you know how proof listening works? The faqs probably tell you all you need to know, viewtopic.php?f=21&t=17680
Please just let us knkw if you have any other questions!
