Peter Bell: A Tale by William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850).

A ne'er do well's life is changed by an encounter with a stubborn animal. ( Matthew Schneider)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/12145/12145-h/12145-h.htm#fr1C
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Peter Bell: A Tale. 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], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Peter Bell: A Tale, by William Wordsworth. [Chapter]"

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Peter Bell: A Tale by William Wordsworth. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • 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 Peter Bell: A Tale, by William Wordsworth. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  • Example filename peterbellatale_##_wordsworth_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. peterbellatale_01_wordsworth_128kb.mp3)

This is set up. A couple notes:

- I put in 4 sections. You can add or remove sections as needed. (Well, you can add them; if any need removing, let me know and I'll do it since you cannot.)

- In the intro/outro wording, it defaults to "Chapter". If you want to say "Section" or "Part" or whatever other designation there, feel free.

- The Magic Window and so forth have changed since you were here last.

Detailed Instructions for accessing the Magic Window can be found in the document linked here: Instructions for Soloists

Video showing how to use the Magic Window (read the above document first - it has the information on how to log in for the first time, which this does not have):
Magic Windows / Section Compiler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOP4tcr1kl8

Fill in the Section Title whatever you want to go in the ID tags, but without the section numbers.

When you upload a chapter, put the file duration (mm:ss) in the Notes field and the uploaded URL into the Listen URL field, and mark it from Assigned to Ready for PL.

Holler if you have questions. :)
