Thanks, Lynette, and Jennifer, too, for the summary. :) That's helpful. I posted my 1-minute test in the Listeners & Editors Wanted forum. So, now I just wait until people reply, work anything out that needs fixing, and then I can get started?

Okay, I've been approved! :D Now, hopefully I'll get a recording done today.

Could I read section 8 (Sunday Afternoon)?
I have one question: my voice gets tired easily, so after reading a little, could my daughter JayKitty76 help out by reading a bit of the same chapter, and so on? Would that be ok?
Thanks,
Bobb

Hi Bobb
Thank you for asking.
I would really prefer not to have two readers in the same section. This chapter will be about 20 minutes long... which I understand is quite long for some readers. There is no requirement you read the whole section in one sitting. However, I have found that, if possible, it is best to pause rather than stop a recording.
If you do have to stop it, BE SURE TO SAVE!! You will also find when you come back, you will be recording in a new track. Just make sure the new recording starts after the old one finishes. When you edit, cut any space between the two tracks (e.g. track 1 finishes at 5:00, track 2 starts at 5:20, due to edits). When you convert to MP3, it will automatically combine into one file (I think it asks you if you want to, so say yes)

Ok, thank you!
JayKitty does the editing part for me, I just record :wink:
But yeah, I may record in shifts to help my voice- we'll see :)

I just noticed that there's a Nabble forum website associated with my handle in the catalog. I don't have that site anymore (but my current website is on my profile for the LibriVox forums, if you want to replace the old one with it).

Thank you.
FYI, we do not submit drafts. It should be ready for publication at this point (ok, we know that isn’t always the case, but it should be our best effort)

We cannot change information in the catalog, after it has been there a few days, except in dire emergency (in which case, I can’t do it myself)

It's ready. I just called it a draft because it hasn't been prooflistened yet (not because it needs to be read again). Every recording (even the final product) could be considered a draft. I did do mulitple recordings and edit it quite a bit before submission. I also reduced the noise.

:thumbs: Just clarifying, as sometimes readers submit raw, unedited files and expect us to do their work for them :roll:

:) Yeah, I understand. I should probably use clearer terminology in future.
