*Smile* Thank you for your response at all. I DO appreciate all that everyone does here!

I'd like to be listed under this name: Burgundy Grace.

It will take me a week or so to begin recording, but am looking forward to completing my first reading project with Librivox.
Also, while I do read through the help files, if you have any specific suggestions for editing one's work, I'd certainly appreciate directed links, just to ensure I have the correct information to process the raw recording.

I'll complete my one minute test very soon, and post!
Thanks again!
Angelique

Thank you Angelique! I have signed you up, your personal catalog page is here https://librivox.org/reader/12568

Have you seen our wiki? It contains tons of practical information. https://wiki.librivox.org/

The best way to learn is, however, by doing, so i wish you best of luck and lots of fun. Make sure you just post in the thread if you have any questions!

Thank you, Carolin! I'm ridiculously excited to have a personal catalogue page!
I Do have many of the wiki pages bookmarked, but had not yet discovered the main source page, so that will be very helpful.
It will be another week or so before I begin to record, and at that point, I'm sure I will have MANY questions regarding editing, especially.
*sigh* It's really not my forte, but I'm sure there's a plentitude of instruction out there, so I again thank you in advance!

Question: In reading the Project Gutenberg text, I notice a minor transcription error in
"laid their garments at the fee of the unconverted Saul."
(The books.google.com version is written as “feet," which makes better sense in context.)

In reading, or in writing notes someplace (where would I make such a correction?), how does one notate a [sic] sort of mistake ... and is it indeed classified as [sic] based upon text used (in this case the Gutenberg version), even if other copies provide the better transcription?
It's a finer point, the answer to which I am not finding in my initial search.

i Do hope the question makes sense; if not, please let me know and I will attempt to clarify.
Thanks!

Hiya, thanks for asking. These errors sometimes slip by the vigilance of the gutenberg folks. When the error is obvious, just read it as it should be rather than as it is. If it is less obvious, chsck back with us :)

Thank you!

Thank you. I think I may have written this question while 3/4s asleep, so am glad it made sense!
Will do.
