徬徨 (Pang Huang) by 迅(Xun) 魯(Lu) (1881 - 1936).
( )
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/24042/pg24042-images.html
    .
  2. 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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin =
    =
  3. 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 徬徨. 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:
      "徬徨, by 迅(Xun) 魯(Lu). [Chapter]"

    .
    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of 徬徨 by 迅(Xun) 魯(Lu). 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 徬徨, by 迅(Xun) 魯(Lu). "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename panghuang_##_lu_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. panghuang_01_lu_128kb.mp3)
    .
  5. 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: https://librivox.org/login/uploader

Tina,

I'd be happy to MC this for you. I'll get your Magic Window set up and be back with some further instructions.

OK, your MW is set up.

If you would like to read the intro/outro in Mandarin, that would be fine. Here is what we have used in the past - but if this is not a good translation, please feel free to adjust it as necessary:
Start of recording (Intro)
  • "鲁迅小说集,彷徨, (章节标题). - 这是 (your name) 为 LibriVox点org所提供的录音,一切LibriVox的录音都为公众所有。如果您想知道更多有关LibriVox的信息,或者提供志愿服务,请参看librivox 点 org 网站"
  • Say:
    " [章节标题]."
For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
  • "鲁迅小说集, 彷徨, [章节标题]。此次LibriVox录音由公众所有"
  • At the end of the section, say:
    "[章节标题]结束"
  • Say:
    "此次录音由 [your name] 提供]"
  • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
    "鲁迅小说集《彷徨》全书录完"
For a solo project, you are the Book Coordinator. That means you fill out the Magic Window and post your links and times in the window when you upload your files.

You'll need to start by logging into the magic window. Instructions are in the BC How-to; and this is a more detailed version of the First Login instructions (with pictures!) Please be sure to read all of the BC How To document, as that will give you more information on your role as a BC.

Next, you'll need to start entering section (or chapter) titles. I've entered the first couple to get you started.

Then you are ready to start recording. When you upload a section, it's your responsibility to add the link and duration (mm:ss) to the Magic Window. Link from the uploader goes in the "listen URL" column, duration goes in the "notes" column. Then be sure to post in the thread that a new section is ready for PL so your DPL knows there is something new.

If you have questions, or if you have any trouble with the instructions in the BC how to, please post and we'll work through it together.

Also, is "Wandering" a good title for this book? Gutenberg is down for me, so I can't check how they cataloged the book. We should have our book name match what Gutenberg used.

Unfortunately, we don't use special characters in file names, so we will need an English translation for file names and the catalog record.

Look forward to working with you!

Hello, MaryAnn,

Thanks for the handholding, which I do need! Let me take some time to go through your instructions, so bear with me.

But, first, on the English title for the book, I tried to check Gutenberg, but I can't seem to find any English title there. I'm not sure if it's because I'm not familiar with how to access that on the site. Could you please check too? If there's none, I guess we can stay with what's listed. These 2 characters basically describe someone being perplexed or his quandary.

Thanks.

Tina,

Looks like Gutenberg is using the pinyin, so let's do the same.

Do you need a DPL?

If yes, I can do it!

Hello, Lucas, I welcome your offer. I'd like to check with MaryAnn first. For some reason, I thought I saw someone offering to be the DPL when I first picked this up from the abandoned project list. So, let's confirm first. Regardless, your offer is encouraging to me!

ManyAnn, is DPL already assigned? Also, I am a bit "Pang huang" about the ebook downloaded from the Gutenberg site. Strangely, it only has 8 stories, instead of 11 like the other version I found or what's listed in Wikipedia(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lu_Xun). I suspect that the Gutenberg version is flawed, especially considering the many wrong or missing characters(shown as an unreadable code )I encountered while recording the first story. What's the SOP in Librivox for handling this sort of situation? Since I'm not familiar with being my own PC, please do not hesitate to point out what I must catch up on in the magic window. Thanks.

Tina

Tina,

Have you found another edition which is clearly published before 1924? The previous reader for this book planned to read from here: http://www.xys.org/xys/classics/Lu-Xun/Panghuang/

I'm not sure the xys.org source has 11 stories, but I don't think it will work for us because I can't verify the date this edition was published.

Lucas,

Tina's memory is correct. Aleithia had offered to PL when this was being discussed through the abandoned project thread.
