The Juvenile Bible by Anonymous ( - ).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-juvenile-bible-by-anonymous/
A collection of short poems describing every book of the Bible (both Old and New testament) for young children to read in order to help them learn about the Bible.( Elsie Selwyn )
  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!): www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/52146
    .
  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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin =

    Please do not read line numbers
  7. DURING recording:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

    • "Chapter [number] of The Juvenile Bible. 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]"

    Abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
    • ”Chapter [number] of the Juvenile Bible. This LibriVox recording is in the public domain.”
    • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"


    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 Juvenile Bible, by Anonymous. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
    Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    .
  8. 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 latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    juvenilebible_##_anonymous_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. juvenilebible_01_anonymous_128kb.mp3)
    .
  9. Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    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.

I would like to use the old magic window, recordings, and summary from the previously abandoned version of this project. I will DPL. MC most welcome! :D

Elsie,

I'd be happy to MC this for you. I'll get things set up.

The abandoned project did not have a summary (it was "to be written later").

This project looks delightful. I'll be happy to read any or all of the New Testament books. (I'm a bit frightened of the older writings' pronunciations.)
E agora, José?

Elsie,

I'd like you to check Section 1 (which is why I've changed it from PL OK to Ready for PL) - there were two files for that section with different sizes and slightly different file names. I'd like to make sure that I got the correct one transferred over to the MW. It was marked PL OK, so if you hear any problems, I'll switch them out and we can check the other file. One of them should be PL OK.

MaryAnn

Okay! Thank you! :D

Also - for 28 that needs corrections - do I need to reopen it? How would I fix the recording if the original reader is no longer here?

I suggest you listen to 28 and see what it needs. If there are repeats that can be cut out, maybe it will be possible to salvage the recording. If it needs the reader, then we can have the entire section read by someone else.

Perhaps I'm not the person for this. Are we to read the line numbers? (I just don't get that, and don't wish to do so.)

No - just read the poem. I agree - reading line numbers would be odd.

Will do! This will be fun!

P.S. I cheated and listened to a previous recording to see what was what. I apologize, but I'm glad I did it. You should have a listen.

Edit: see later post. Line numbers can be read or not read - up to the desire of the reader.

Also, MaryAnn - I was not able to listen to section 1. It said URL not found.
