Here are some in our catalog. https://librivox.org/search?q=Tagalog&search_form=advanced

There are 2,882 of them listed here: https://archive.org/search.php?query=Tagalog&and[]=languageSorter%3A%22Tagalog%22&and[]=mediatype%3A%22texts%22 You would need me make sure they were PD before recording any of them though.

Clicking "Always Available" on the left side can narrow it down to more-likely-PD books:
https://archive.org/search.php?query=Tagalog&and[]=languageSorter%3A%22Tagalog%22&and[]=mediatype%3A%22texts%22&and[]=lending___status%3A%22is_readable%22
It narrows it down from 2800 to 200.

(Sometimes that check box isn't in the left column. This time it is.)

Here's a solo that looks like it hasn't taken off very well but has some sections ready for PL... Maybe that would be of interest to you as well.? :) (I don't know if you've done any PLing before, but it's really not that difficult.)

Hello, I checked this but I see somebody is assigned to the chapters.
What you mean by Pling? :)

Besy

Proof Listening... That's the main thing I've done at LibriVox since I joined. :wink:

First step is to read the instructions here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Guide_for_Proof-listeners so that you know what to look for.

I always download the files I plan to listen to and run them through Checker first to make sure the volume and everything is correct. Many people prefer listening through Audacity (if that's the recording software they use) so that it's easier to tell just where a mistake was made, but that is optional and I don't always do that. Let me know if you want any more input! :)

Have fun!

Okay, will do check out the links you sent. My DAW is not Audacity. I'm using ADOBE AUDITION hope it does not matter.

Do I need to log in to MW and just PL what is done? Or you gonna assign me to what section needs to be PL?

I'm not involved in that project, just happened to see it earlier today. I'd suggest first posting in the thread that you're willing to proof listen (providing you decide you want to), then the MC there can help you out. Sections 5 & 6 are the only ones that are ready to be listened to just now. You can download from the MW without signing in, although that is a privilege reserved for the Book Coordinator and Proof Listener.

And it's fine to listen with whatever is handiest for you.

Hope this makes sense! (I'm getting sleepy.)
