No, absolutely no hurry at all. I am just trying to get everything prepared in advance! :)

Welsh pronunciation help, please

Ask me about Welsh place names: I can do those. Ah, just what I need! I have a fair idea, as my mother was from Llanelli, but she is no longer around to help me. :( I am intending to embark on my first solo project (once my transcription has got on to Gutenberg), which includes an article about the...

I notice that the Magic Window says that there's no ID tag for Lecture 8, but I did set it (in Audacity 1.3.4) and it shows up in Creative Media Player. Any hints on where I am going wrong?

Well, I have certainly learned something today! Many thanks, Digisage. That explains a lot! I am not remotely surprised that ISPs are so devious, considering their interesting use of the term unlimited in terms of bandwidth, but that is a horse of a different colour... :twisted: Of course, it would ...

Slow uploading

Is there a good time of day for uploading to http://upload.librivox.org/? It seems to be very slow indeed for me (starting at 35 Kbps and dropping steadily to only 10 Kbps). It takes longer to upload a 35Mb file than to record it. :roll: It shouldn't be my connection (in theory), as I am on ADSL 8Mb...

Please may I claim Section 7 - The Life of a Primrose?

EDIT: I am really enjoying this one - I even went out into the garden and picked a primrose flower to examine it in detail! Please may I have Sections 8 and 9 too?

New volunteer

Hello, all. I am very keen to contribute recordings to the project. I'm a middle-aged Englishwoman, and used to speaking in public. I suppose my voice would be described as Received Pronunciation as I have no discernible accent. I haven't recorded the spoken word for many years, but used to record a...
