Re: [FULL][Russian]Сказки, Михаил Евграфович Салтыков-Щедрин. - kit

Thank you.

I've added the missing word at 36:55, please check.

As to the pronunciation of numbers, 1800 can be "тысяча восемьсот" or can be "одна тысяча восемьсот", there is no difference in the meaning, and there is no ambiguity.

OK, I've split the recording into two sections, added what I consider appropriate wording, edited, and uploaded.

The MW has also been fixed.

A very short section, 12, is ready for PL. Working on part II.

Section 7 has been uploaded. It's long, almost 1.5 hours... If we can't keep such a long section, I will split it, edit it, and then change the MW to fix the numbers.

I am still swamped with work. Hope to get back to it soon enough (relatively speaking). Perhaps before needing to update you next time. :|

Re: [FULL][Russian]Сказки, Михаил Евграфович Салтыков-Щедрин. - kit

Just an update. Still swamped at work (actually working at home). Still trying to find an opportunity to record. Maybe a couple weeks from now...

Thank you for reminding me, and hope to get back to it relatively soon.

Re: Any Russian-speaking readers around?

1. Фраза "и помощи проекту" читается проще, нежели "и участия в проекте".
2. "Помощь" может быть и финансовая, но назвать это "участием" вряд ли можно.

Что важнее: дословность, литературность, благозвучность? :roll: <shrug> :wink:

Re: Any Russian-speaking readers around?

Перечисление причин, побуждающих "посетить сетевую страницу", можно связать либо тем, либо другим союзом. Более того, союз "и" несёт в этом контексте оттенок побуждения к "помощи проекту" тоже . Союз "или" противопоставлял бы получение справок участию. Кстати, в английском "or" тоже может соединять ...

Re: Podcasting LV titles

Putting on a devil's advocate hat...

Would you ask advice on podcasting about knitting in a knitting forum? On podcasting about paragliding in a paragliding forum? Or would you rather look for a podcasting forum and ask there? :)

Re: I would like to post audiobooks I have already recorded but not sure how

Hi @tovarisch, Thank you very much for the response. A few responses: * This is not a solo project. Quite a few volunteers are involved. Infact, the voices in the audiobook are professional radio announcers and this volunteer project brings us together. * LibriVox standards - I am sure it is above ...

Re: I would like to post audiobooks I have already recorded but not sure how

I am sure an admin will chime in soon. While they haven't, I will share what I know. The process we always follow here has the approval at the beginning, then recording, then proof-listening, then publishing. Since the books are in the public domain, you're probably fine as far as the approval goes....

Re: The all-new "HELP! I have an Audacity problem" thread

Hi, how do you decrease the playback volume on a recording so it falls inside the target range without having to record the section all over again? :help: Deamplifying helps only if the samples weren't clipped . If they were, no saving them, alas. Distortion (if it exists) is due to loss of informa...

Or, reading your post again, it could be that you're running out of storage space.
Or, perhaps you have too many apps running at the same time, and Audacity is starved. So, free up some memory, CPU and hard drive space, and try again! :)

Re: 1-Minute Test

Hi Ryan, The new test is very good! Your tech specs are right on, so keep them. Now, about the noise. Since you've switched to Audacity, you'll have very easy time dealing with it. :) Select a bit of "silence" (about 1 second without your speaking or taking breath) by dragging your mouse over that p...
