Welcome to Librivox, Hailee!
It would be great to have you record sections 4,7 for this project (The Bible History). It looks like you've just passed your 1 minute test recording which means you are ready to go. Don't forget in all future recordings to make any changes that were suggested when you did the test recording (eg: if you needed to amplify, you'll need to do that for every section you submit).
In order to assign a section to you in the Magic Window (MW) of this project, I've entered you into the database of readers. Your claim is confirmed - you have two months to submit it. Looking forward to hearing your section and have you help out with this project!
Some common questions that new readers ask:
- Footnotes: They are optional. You can read all, some or none. An easy way to mark them is to say 'footnote' then read the footnote then say 'end footnote'.
- Quotes: You can mark these by saying 'quote' then reading the quote and then saying 'end quote'. You can decide whether to say quote at all - sometimes it will be clear from context. I'd suggest saying it if the quotation spans multiple sentences.
- Non-English phrases: We do have to read them. You could 1) pronounce it however you want 2) post in this thread and ask for someone to record it for you so you can either mimic it or splice it into your own recording 3) try Forvo for individual words or the sound icon on Google Translate for a text to speech version to copy.
- Roman numerals: Read these as their corresponding number.
- Abbreviations: You can choose to expand these or not to. You could say 'e.g' or 'for example'.
- Heading numbering: Sometimes books use roman numerals and digits for two different levels of headings. I think a good solution to this is to say 'first, second' etc. for roman numeral headings (I, II etc.) and 'one, two' etc. for digit headings (1, 2 etc.).
