The Tale of Turkey Proudfoot by Arthur Scott Bailey (1877 - 1949).

Arthur Scott Bailey, a native of the state of Vermont, wrote over forty children's books using a variety of animals, birds and even insects to entertain. The Tale of Turkey Proudfoot is one of 16 stories of his Tuck-Me-In Tales series. ( Larry Wilson)
    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 would 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 1-2 months of placing your claim. 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 two months, 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.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21844
    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.

Cheers!

I would like to try my hand a PLing of a few sections.

Let me know.

Take care

A few questions.

Do you want to be DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) to PL all sections in the project, or do you want to PL just a few chapters? Most projects have a DPL. This is best for the project flow and for consistency. But, if you wan to do just a few chapters, I think we can arrange for that, so let me know.

Although technically not required, I like to have a PL who will also check the file specifications using our simple Checker program.

I saw your discussion on the other forum, so I'll give you my method. I do a lot of PL work.
I like to download the files and listen to them in Audacity. It allows me to see the wave form and the time stamp for making notes.

I just left click on the link in the MW, choose "save link as" and save it to my "DPL to Do" folder. Then I drag it into Checker which automatically checks volume and other specs. Then I just drag it into Audacity and listen to it. I don't save it in Audacity since I have the file in my folder. I've got a LOT of stuff in my folders! (It is important always to listen from the link in the MW, not from what is posted in the forum).

PL notes are just posted in the forum. I try to find the post with the link and reply to it, either as "PL OK" or with notes for anything that needs correction. If you are DPL, then you have access to the Magic Window where you can change the status from Ready for PL, to PL OK or See PL Notes.

Proof listeners are valuable members of the team!

Let me know what you might like to do.

Silverquil,

I would like to try a few chapters, for now if it isn't too much of a problem. However, I do understand that having a DPL would be better for consistency and flow (I'm not sure if I'm ready for that life as yet.. :lol: ).
Using checker should be fine.

Okay, we'll still look for a DPL, but I'll have you PL the first few sections that come in. Maybe I'll go ahead and record Section 1 for you.

Greetings -

I am more than willing to be the back-up for softstepgd while they learn the joys of PLing. I will stay in the background and only take over if they decide not to do all the sections.
