Each 1 minute test I have clicked is the same "Peter Pepper.........."

Is this the standard test speech?

I've answered my own question

Thanks

It is the standard text for a test, and is located on the wiki page with instructions for the 1-minute test: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

"Record something like this. This is designed to make sure that some of the tricky consonants don't cause trouble with you and your mic."

It's not a requirement, but it's helpful if the tests use this text.

Are you going to be recording your own test to jump into the recording pool? :)

I was a rebel against taking direction when I made my one minute test, and I recorded a portion of the Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock instead of the standard text. :lol:

It only took me another two years or so to record the actual poem for real. :wink:

Also it's Peter Piper, who picked a couple pages for fable fans at librivox :wink:

But really, why are they all tongue twisters? Is the test actually to see if you can manage tongue twisters?

Well I know this script is pretty great at catching plosives...
