Howdy! Could I please claim section 6? Thank you!
Hi and welcome to Librivox!
There are a few things to do before you get started.
You will need to complete a one minute test - this is to check your specs are up to Librivox standards, and if not, you'll be given hints on how to remedy that. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
Please post your test in the Listeners Wanted forum (see the dropdown at the bottom of the page) for the speediest response. Waiting for the OK may seem tedious, but can save time in the long run.
You will also need to be added to the catalog of readers. I will add you using your forum name, but if you prefer your real name or a pseudonym let me know. We can also link to a personal blog or website. Be sure to read the first post - all the info you need is there, but if anything doesn't make sense, just ask. The wiki (see the top of the page) has bundles of info too.

Finally got it done. Two days. Help desk didn't respond so decided on a new measure. Got a new PW. It appears that the PW to log into LV is different from the PW to upload. That's the only conclusion I can reach. Doesn't make sense but my PW to get into LV worked but not to upload. Go figure.

Anyway, hope I'm doing this correctly. It's been uploaded callmrfortune_07_bailey_125kb.mp3. Length of recording 48:14

Hmm, the password shouldn’t be different, unless you were using a BC/DPL password. Thanks anyway. In future, please copy the entire url from the uploader. I should be able to make this work, provided you uploaded correctly :D

Hi Lynnet. I agree with you on PW. Should have worked on both. Did some months ago when I submitted two. But not now. Just logged in few minutes ago on old password and got in fine. But yesterday, as I wrote, only worked for upload when I got new PW. I know it makes no sense but that was my experience, repeated several times.

I did copy & paste the URL into my reply post exactly as the uploader indicated after uploading completed. So, no explanation. My sincere apologies if I erred. BTW: This particular recording has been a series of problems. Accidently deleted the first completed recording (operator error) and had to redo. But was ok because I didn't like it (my first "longform" narration; past two were short poems). There are a few seconds at about 4:00 and 8:00 where clear I inserted new clip; the change is audible in pitch (whatever). Tried to repair it but nothing work. Still serviceable I think. And then uploading. Oh deary.

If there are any problems with my submission, please let me know. Thanks

I'd be happy to adopt that poor orphan if "The Sleeping Companion" is still without a new home.
