The Alpine Path: The Story of my Career by Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874 - 1942).

Quote:
L.M. Montgomery's autobiography highlighting her early childhood and literary career. ( Carolyn Agee)


  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015005332633;view=1up;seq=1

  2. 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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin
    ============================================

  3. 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 Alpine Path: The Story of my Career. 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 Alpine Path: The Story of my Career, by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Chapter [number, title]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Alpine Path: The Story of my Career by Lucy Maud Montgomery. 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 Alpine Path: The Story of my Career, by Lucy Maud Montgomery. "

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

  4. Example filename alpinepath_##_montgomery_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. alpinepath_01_montgomery_128kb.mp3)

  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: maryannspiegel
    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

  6. Any questions?
    Please post below

Hi,

I started this project in late September. I can't remember who my MC and DPLs were (sorry, I'm really bad at names IRL, screen names are even harder)... :help:

Can't remember who the MC was - was it Annise? Or MaryAnn?

OK Carolyn, here we are, MW is ready for you to fill in.

The system thinks you are a brand new BC, so you will need to go through the process to set up a password again.

Instructions are here:

First Time Logging in to the Workflow

Instructions for BCs and DPLs

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.

BCs - How to Update the Magic Window

Let me know if you have any trouble. Sorry that you had to restart your solo . . . At this point you are well practiced in setting up a project!

MaryAnn

We're all checked in, so I'll move this to going solo, to keep our busy busy launch pad tidy.

My apologies! I have been absolutely swamped with unanticipated life events. I will process the audio on ch. 1 tonight, and if all goes well upload ch. 2 next week!

Sorry, technical difficulties on my end. Very nearly done with the first chapter, though I may need to re-record 2 minutes. My goal is to have it uploaded tomorrow night and then record the rest of the sections by the end of the month.

Okay! I think I finally have the hang of things! Whew! The editing for the first chapter is finished, aside from 30 seconds I need to re-record. It must wait until morning as my neighbours are being too loud to record, just now! It will defintely be uploaded tomorrow! :clap:
