Myths and Legends Around the World - Collection 2 by Various ( - 0).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/myths-and-legends-around-the-world-vol-2/

This collection is dedicated to recordings of short mythical or legendary works which are in the Public Domain. The stories tell of legends, heroes, myths, and ancient lore from many different cultures. - Summary by Lynette Caulkins
  • Please choose and record any short myth or legendary piece in the public domain. For clarification of what it means for a work to be "in the public domain," see this section of the LibriVox Wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Copyright_and_Public_Domain. Try to stay with works that run less than 60 minutes. You may read up to 2 selections per volume. You may use 2 sections for one myth/legend if that is needed. Multiple versions are welcome, so don't worry whether someone else has recorded your topic already; we're happy to hear the version you found, too. :)

    After 12 recordings are submitted and approved, we will catalog the collection and make it available to the public.

    Here is a list of sources that still have chapters available: Potential Sources for Myths and Legends Around the World *Please note that you are absolutely welcome to use other public domain sources.

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin Basic Recording Guide: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording

    1. RECORD:
    • Be sure to set your recording software to: 44100Hz, 16 or 32-bit.
    • At the BEGINNING say: "[Title of Work], by [Author Name]" "This is a Librivox recording. All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit Librivox.org"
    • At the END, say: "End of [Title], by [Author Name]"
    • If you wish, you may also say: "Read by...your name."
    • Please leave .5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording. Add 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
    2. EDIT and SAVE your file:
    • Need noise-cleaning? See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    • Save or export your recording to an mp3 file at 128kbs. The uploader will add the mp.3 to the end of your file name when it uploads. Please use the format shown. Your file name should have this format before you upload it:

      mlaw002_titleofwork_authorlastname_yourinitials_128kb
      (example: mlaw002_daughtersun_fraser_lc_128kb)

      After it is uploaded, it should have this format:
      https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/mlaw002_titleofwork_authorlastname_yourinitials_128kb.mp3
    • Keep the file name short! Use just a word or two to identify the title. Omit "a," "the," etc. Don't put spaces between words. Keep everything lower case. Even your initials should be lower case. The only underscores should be the separations between the mlaw volume, title, author's last name, and your initials. There are only 4 underscores in a file name!
    • Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    3. UPLOAD your recording:
    • Upload your finished recording using the LibriVox uploader: http://librivox.org/login/uploader. When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - copy and post it to the current nonfiction thread. If you don't post that you've uploaded your recording, the nonfiction book coordinator won't know that you did it!
      Image
    • If you have trouble reading the image above, please send a private message to any admin.
    • To upload, you'll need to select the MC, which for the Myths and Legends Around the Worls Vol. 2 is: lt - Lynnet
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page
    When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.

    4. POST the following information in this thread:
    • Title of the work.
    • Author of the work.
    • A URL link to the source from which you read (etext URL). NOTE: If posting from Gutenberg, please provide the link to the download page instead of the view of the book, e.g. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/# (where # is the Gutenberg project number for the book).
    • The link to your recording file that you copied from the uploader.
    • Length in minutes. (mm:ss)
    • If this is your first Librivox recording, we will also need your name as you would like it to appear in the LibriVox catalog, and, if you have a web page and want it linked to your name in the catalog, the URL of the web page.
    5. PROOF LISTENING AND DEADLINE FOR EDITS on recordings you have submitted:
    • The level of proof listening for the nonfiction collection is "standard." We will only proof for repeated words or passages that the reader likely intended to edit out, misreads that change the meaning of the text, and such. For a discussion of the levels of proof listening, please see this Wiki page: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Guide_for_Proof-listeners#Levels_of_Proof-listening
    • We ask that you complete any editing requested by the Dedicated Proof Listener within two weeks of the request, or, if you need more time, that you post in this thread to request an extension. There’s absolutely no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. Extensions are, however, at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. To be fair to the other readers, sections which cannot be edited in a timely manner may be deleted from the current volume of the Myths and Legends Around the World Collection, but they can always be included in a future volume when the edits are complete.

    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!

Well, the link for the potential sources should work much better, now that I fixed its access to allow anyone with the link to view it. . . :lol:

Thank you, Lynnet :) Yes, I'll just PL this one. I'm not taking any new solos on for DPL, so it will work fine.

EDITED:

Hey, Laurel, I just realized I made a mistake telling you this is already PL OK. - Your section needs the required LibriVox disclaimer in the introduction.

Can you please insert "This is a Librivox recording. All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit Librivox.org" at :08 seconds, after the author names? (You'll want to record silence after the disclaimer, so it's not smushed against the beginning of the story.) Let me know if you need help learning how to insert a phrase into a recording. :)


Laurel, thank you very much for this fantastic submission. It is PL OK off the bat! :thumbs:

(also - big KUDOS for figuring out all the instructions correctly on your first LibriVox section. They are more complicated than usual for this project.)

Oh! And here is the link to your Reader page in the Catalog: Laurel Emerson. You'll see that it makes a list of all the projects you participate in (both finished and in progress). It also has a link to a list of all the sections that are assigned to you for reading or for proof-listening.
