In theory yes, Anise, no-one's required to have a reading linked from the table (and lots of folk don't.) But, there doesn't seem much point, since there are no recordings for people interested in your accent to listen to yet.
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

Hi!

Don't have a login for the wiki - so I can't edit...

| https://catalog.librivox.org/people_public.php?peopleid=5424 (Julia Niedermaier)
| Austria
| English: British with an Austrian-German accent; German: no dialect, but German native speakers would probably recognize me as Austrian;
| born and raised in Vienna (AT); studied for a year in Newcastle (UK); I might at some point try my hand at French or Japanese - be afraid, be very afraid ;)
| English: http://ia600301.us.archive.org/30/items/pool_1205_librivox/pool_dunbar_jn.mp3

I will submit a link for a German sample once something of my recent recordings has been catalogued :)

Thank you!

Your catalogue page is here, Peter :) https://catalog.librivox.org/people_public.php?peopleid=7822

I'll add you later tonight, unless someone else gets to it first. Jc's not been around for a while now.


Oooh, and you too, Lynne! I'm sorry I missed your previous post.
