Oh wow, it's old French??? :shock: I thought some of it looked kind of like French, but not quite. Maybe that's what I was seeing?
some poems definitely are OLD French, yes. Some are also Old German ;) but I can deal with that.
EDIT: Would you be willing to have your recording inserted into someone else's chapter? Maybe with a voice credit at the beginning of the chapter: "French and German portions read by Sonia"? I, for one, wouldn't want to try to copy someone else's pronunciation for a long segment like that, although I don't mind it for a phrase or sentence.
yes it's as the reader wishes really. If they want to copy the pronunciation I can give them the sample, if they prefer me to do it, I can clean it up better for public use. As long as I only have to do the poems :lol: I definitely don't want to read such long chapters.

Just post in here whenever someone needs something and I try to record it as soon as I can.

Section 1 is fluently PL OK.
The few non-standard pronunciations do not prevent recognition of the intended word/phrase.
Recording is 100% clear and blemish-free.

Regards

Welcome! I'm so sorry that I missed this post yesterday when I was checking up on my projects! Turns out I didn't have it properly bookmarked. :oops:

I would be happy to have you read for this project! Before you get started, though, please complete your 1-minute test to make sure that your settings are correct. It's best to address any problems of that nature before you put in the time and effort to read and edit an entire chapter. :wink:

What name would you like to use in our catalogue? It can be your real name, forum name, or some other pseudonym.

Welcome to LibriVox! It's great that you are eager to get started!

Before you begin recording sections of a book, you should make sure that all of your equipment is set up correctly by completing a quick test: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

In the meantime, I can hold on to section 14 for you. It's a bit long for your first submission. (Not that we have requirements about that, but a lot of new folks prefer to start with short selections.) 5400 words will come out to about 35-40 minutes, give or take. When you factor in the time it takes to record and edit out any stumbles, you're probably looking at up to 2 hours of time working on it. I say this not to discourage you, but so that you know in advance what you're up against. :)

Again, welcome! And let me know if I can help you in any way as you get started here! :D
