Re: How long does it take you to produce a section?

But ... we're LibriVoxers. :D There isn't 'high' or 'low' quality -- just different ways of approaching the same activity, for different reasons, causing differences in process and outcome. It's all good. It's all "acoustical liberation of books in the public domain" in the long run. :D

Re: How long does it take you to produce a section?

It depends on what I'm reading. A 3 min poem can easily take 45+ mins, because I faff about with every millimetre of it. 30 mins of easy non-fiction, or not-too-character-heavy fiction, perhaps 3 hours to produce. Harder fiction, or a lot of character voices, more like 4 hours. So a ratio of 6:1 to ...

Re: Players (for elderly)

If you aren't collecting PII, then as I understand it, you don't have a liability under GDPR as you have no data to be managed or protected. Similarly, if you aren't charging money or using ads to make money, then it's hard to see why anyone would bother litigating over a well-written app. (Obviousl...

Re: Players (for elderly)

Using a name that doesn't reference LibriVox directly (e.g. Super Friendly Audiobook Player, rather than LibriVox Super Friendly Player) can avoid the most obvious LibriVox-related issues you're likely to run into. (And reduces by 1% the number of people who will contact us directly for user support...

Re: SOLO Anthem by Ayn Rand - philc

Please could you try the magic window login again -- at Phil's request, I've tucked the duplicate user out of the way, so it should work as expected this time round. Though you may still need to do the Forgot Password dance once more through. :D

You have just 27 days to join the best cohort going, so we can celebrate with you this time next year. :D (Well, that said, all the other month cohorts kinda rock too. But anyway. Join us,...

Re: In Honour of the 14th Anniversary of LV, plz proofread and make ebooks on PG written by fourteen different writers?

It's nice to have you back here, Eunah, we've spoken here a little before. *waves and smiles* I used to be a Distributed Proofreader, but just enjoy LibriVox more. *grins* However, I hope someone who still crosses between the two might pass these suggestions on to DP. It does takes training and prac...

Re: Volunteer CD Covers! Working Thread

I'm not sure who produced the lovely cover for my Beyond Good and Evil -- but there's a little typo on Nietzsche (an extra s ... Nietszsche). I'm pretty sure I've made every typo possible on his name during the project, so completely relate. :D

Thank you so much, Tricia! I wouldn't have pestered you just before going away, but I was crossing my fingers you'd have a bit of time today. :D

And thank you, Sonia -- I really appreciate your patience and help with it!

Hope the rest of your weekend is infinitely more fun. :lol: Still, we're very nearly done ... and I don't know where you stand, but personally, I'm delighted to say that I have read absolu...

Re: Help! Reader with too many inhalation noises

Love this topic! So, are we talking great air gulps, which happen less often, or regular breathing which is happening throughout (obviously :D )? Because, I'd very highly recommend leaving the latter alone. Listening to recordings with breathing stripped out makes many listeners (including me!) feel...

Re: SOLO Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche (trans. Helen Zimmern) - tg

I would absolutely love to know what Helen Zimmern made of it! And they knew each other quite well, too ... it's boggling that he would trust her to understand his thinking and render it faithfully into another language, and yet make such ignorant generalisations about her gender. Chapter 8 is ready...

Re: SOLO Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche (trans. Helen Zimmern) - tg

Hi Sonia and Tricia! I have time! I have energy! I have a newly completed chapter uploaded ... and think I might be on a roll with editing FINALLY! This one is a biggie, at 63m 54s -- though that said, the final one is so big it'll probably need a split. Will finish editing and see how it lands. :D

Re: LibriVox Community Podcast Planning

The Podcasts page lists the main theme of each recording, and if you scan back through this topic, you'll find the show notes which give more detail for each one. Combining both hopefully also gives an idea about the tone of the show ... these topics would need sensitive handling to be open to anyon...

Working in the loosest sense, yes. It's all recorded, I'm just ploughing through the editing very slowly indeed. :D
