Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Thank you! I will fix wynd and premise when I get back to my ordinary acoustic environment. Holyrood, huh. It never occurred to me that it might be Hollyrood, given that the word presumably means "holy cross"! But I'll leave it, as you suggest. Also, I realized that I'd forgotten to upload the last ...

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Fixed and re-uploaded, thanks. Glad you liked my singing! : ) There'll be another song in chapter 16.

Yeah, I did check the pronunciation of "tow-coloured", but now I'm afraid I've forgotten it again, heh. Chapters 16-22 uploaded now, btw.

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Have corrected the mispronunciation in Chapter 2. I re-uploaded it under the same name - Kiki, that's the correct way to do it, right?

Also uploaded Chapters 12-15. Wohoo, I'm halfway done! : )

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Thank you, I would love comments on pronunciation! Might go back to re-record...and I should have guessed the long vowel on loth, since it is often spelled loath.

And I'm relieved that you hadn't been noticing/thinking about the pronunciation of Archie.

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Yes, that works fine for me! Don't worry about editing the Magic Window, I can do that. And I'm glad my approach to the Scots works fine. I've just realized that I'm probably a bit inconsistent with doing rolling r:s. I've been doing a Scottish pronunciation for Brechin and other place names (with t...

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Thanks! : ) Chapters 2, 3, and 4 up now. In Chapter 3 I get to sing folk songs! The lyrics are written by the author (she was also a poet) but I can't find any melodies online, so I made up my own. Which is a bonus, as I love both to sing and to compose melodies. : ) Although it's a bit intimidating...

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Kiki, two questions: 1) It says I shouldn't use " for titles in the MW. Is it okay with two ' signs instead? I have used that for now... 2) Should I both edit links/duration times into the MW and also post them in comments every time I have a new chapter? That seems a little redundant, but it seems ...

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

All right, here's the first chapter: https://librivox.org/uploads/kikisaulite/flemington_01_jacob_128kb.mp3 18:44 I've actually done a fair bit of recording/editing on the book already, first to make sure I wanted to do it, and then I was just lazy and didn't get around to creating this thread. : ) ...

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob - kiki

Yes, it's been some years since I recorded for Librivox--back in 2012, actually! Time flies. But I record a lot for another audiobook community, so I haven't been idle since then. Thanks for the help; I have logged in now, and can see the LibriVox Management Dashboard. I will get my DPL on board now...

Re: SOLO Flemington by Violet Jacob

Yes, I know this has already been recorded once! But I want to record another version, for my own pleasure. : )

I already have a DPL.

Re: Text Policy: Historic & Going Into Each New Year

Hi, there's a book that I would very much like to record when that becomes possible. It was first published in 1925, so I assume it will become PD next year. If I have a copy of the book where it says "Copyright the Estate of [author], 1925" on the inside, even if the book itself is a later edition,...
