Tecumseh: A Chronicle of the Last Great Leader of His People by Ethel T. Raymond (? - 1960).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/tecumseh-a-chronicle-of-the-last-great-leader-of-his-people-by-ethel-t-raymond/
This is Volume 17 in the Chronicles of Canada series
Volunteers outside the USA: Ethel T. Raymond died in 1960. Her work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, and Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954).
  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’d 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 month of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). 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 one month, 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. The target completion date for this project is 30 April 2011.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/24147
  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

    MAGIC WINDOW:

  6. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of Tecumseh. - 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]"
    • Say:
      "Tecumseh, by Ethel T. Raymond. Chapter [number], [chapter name]."
    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of Chapter [number]."
    • 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 Tecumseh, by Ethel T. Raymond."
    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

    Please pronounce Tecumseh as Teh-COME-see.


    Also, 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 new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    tecumseh_##_raymond.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. tecumseh_01_raymond.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Section title]
    Artist: Ethel T. Raymond
    Album: Tecumseh: A Chronicle of the Last Great Leader of His People

    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 (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
      http://upload.librivox.org
      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: ehl - Starlite
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Do you have a preferred pronunciation of "Tecumseh"? Would it be "Tuh-COME-suh" or "Tuh-COME-say" for example?

I'd say something more like Tuh-COME-see.
Esther - do you want to make the call since the Chronicles are your pet project?

Anyone know the pronunciation from his native tongue or at least the most widely accepted version? I believe I've heard/read it as 'Tuh-COME-suh', just my opinion on it though!

Mirriam-Webster Online as it as Teh-COME-see.

I'm glad I asked! I would have pronounced it incorrectly. Now, to look over which sections I'd like to read...

(I see that this is PD in Canada as of today. I see the method in the timing! 8-) )

Well I'm a little late to the discusion (moving), but I have always said it as 'Tuh-COME-suh'. <shrug> Either way is fine with me. :wink:
