Welcome, and thank you for taking on this last role.

A few things about dramas. First off, like all Librivox projects, the instructions are described in the first posting. Such things as the reference text, where to upload, the file names to use (with one file for each act in dramas). For dramas you won't have to read any introduction or closing text - that is handled by the narrator/reader of the stage directions. But do include in your recordings a voice credit with the character name as given in the MW so I can assemble the cast list at the beginning of the play.

Second, when you record, leave good size gaps - several seconds at least - between each line. Including where a stage direction might interrupt a line. I need to cut your files apart to cut and paste each line into its place in the master files, and I need to be able to easily see where the line breaks are.

Edit your part to be correct and represent your best attempt - the wonder of this Librivox process is that no one knows about all the tries that get trashed and never heard in the final releases. Avoid clipping and, if necessary, do any (very little I hope) noise cleaning. Our DPL - dedicated proof listener - will provide feedback and encouragement on your submittals.

Finally, have fun with the part. You don't get to communicate with your appearance and gestures, so everything has to be communicated in the voice. Look at what other characters are saying near your lines and interact with them - if you wish, download the file for other characters so you can hear what they sound like in your conversations with them. But give me just your voice in the files you submit.

Enjoy, and pepper us with questions. We're here to help!

Thanks, Todd

You're a youngster to me. But of course most of these plays are older than both of us. Put together....

Thanks, Todd
