Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

Section 16

10:30 the text from “folks” to the next “folks” is missing
11:55 text says "alacrity", you read "a clarity"
21:53 the silence is only 3 seconds

Greetings,
Roland

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

Section 6 PL OK This morning it sounds to me as if you had re-read all of the parts I mentioned. They all sound great and consistent with the rest of the text now. Could it really be that I listen and hear completely differently in the evening vs. in the morning? Unfortunately, I don’t have yesterd...

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

Ha! No apologies needed at all, Michele! But just to make sure I understand... When you said "Brian" above, did you mean me (Brandon) ? If so, then I don't think there was a problem at all because my PL was section 7 only and not 5. (& not offended on the name mix up, just making sure I'm clear!) I...

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

Section 6 25:20 text says “my Lord this and my Lady that”, you read “my Lord this and my Lord that” — I don’t want all women to be excluded from this sentence, therefore I consider it significant 31:38 double tone overlay 49:35 text says “dreadful”, you read “awful” — maybe significant, maybe not, I...

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

Section 5 PL 13:21 text says “in that state of society”, you read “in that state of sobriety” I have no idea what sobriety is (I only know it from the song called “twist in my sobriety”), but I think it is different enough from society to be mentioned. 21:26 text says “delighting”, you read “delight...

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

Roland, if you have the time, care to try PL'ing Section 5? Section 5 PL As last time, you decide what’s significant and what’s not. The usual flattering applies. :) 04:05 text says “and if she had only had power”, you read “and if she had only the power” 08:43 text says “never could bear my Aunt L...

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

PL Section 4 OK

How do you do it that your editing an re-recording sounds as if you had read the whole work in one piece? That’s amazing. I’m going to read some articles about that topic and then come back and try on my own.

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

PL Section 4 10:28 the text repeats both verses: “Thy years are an / Etarnal day, / Thy years are an / Etarnal day.” -- you read “Etarnal day” twice, but not the rest I’m sorry for my first feedback about that line, since it said “You read Etarnal day twice”, which may have misled you to reading onl...

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

PL chapter 4 Preliminary remark: I’m not sure what you meant by “significant discrepancies”, so I noted down everything I found. Whether it is significant or not is your decision. Regarding the click sounds, I’m not sure whether they were intentional or not. mp3 format: ok silence at the beginning: ...

Re: ~(GROUP) Oldtown Folks - Harriet Beecher Stowe-mas

Hi,

I’d like to proof-listen chapter IV, “The Village Do-Nothing”. I’m not a native speaker though, but the proof-listening guide talks about more technical things than about language, so that might be fine. It would also be my very first proof-listening.

Searching for recordings in a specific language

Hi, imagine I am learning Chinese and want to listen to some Chinese recording. So I go to the LibriVox homepage, click on “Advanced search” and select “Chinese” as the language. The search result is not what I expect. The first entry is indeed Chinese, but the following 15 entries are not in Chines...

Re: internationalizing the site: NEED TRANSLATORS

Hi, I’d like to do the German translation of the LibriVox homepage. According to http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/German_Homepage_Translation, this still needs to be done. I already have experience in translating, so all I need for it is a Wiki account and someone who tells me “yes, you may start”...
