Wanted: Dedicated Proof Listener for Reading of Anabasis

Post by bedwere » Tue Aug 07, 2018 5:38 pm

I'll be recording the Anabasis on Librivox and I need somebody to join Librivox to be a dedicated proof listener. The requirements to be a PL or DPL are spelled out here. Only Standard Proof-listening is required.

Roberto, do you know which part(s) of the Anabasis you will be recording? Surely not the entire work, as awesome as that would be?

I'm looking forward to it. I've profited from your other recordings, and have been waiting for, and following your progress on, your De civitate dei recording for the last year and a half!

You're doing all of us a great service.

Thank you for your kind words, Scotistic! I have a Xenophontic as proof-listener. :D

Joel, with two infant daughters, a wife, a job, managing Textkit, and his own intellectual pursuits cannot proof-listen any more. So I am looking for a substitute. The steps for you, oh brave volunteer, to follow are:
  1. Reply to this post.
  2. Get an account on the Librivox forum, https://forum.librivox.org
  3. Subscribe to topic https://forum.librivox.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=71273
  4. Post that you are taking over the office of proof-listener from Joel.
  5. Download the first section that says "Ready for PL."
  6. Listen to it attentively with audacity (or equivalent program), while you read along the text from https://archive.org/details/operaomniar ... ft/page/72
  7. If you notice a mistake, write down the time and kind of mistake. These may be sound quality, but also a missing word or particle, repetitions, wrong person (like ἔπαυσαν instead of ἔπαυσεν), etc.. For example, for the first section Joel wrote: 8:38 καὶ ἁθροίζει καὶ ἁθροίζει because I recorded something twice.
  8. Write a post within the topic to tell me what to fix.
  9. When you are notified through the subscription that I fixed the problems, no need to listen again to the whole recording: you just spot check the fixes at the times where they were needed.
  10. Go back to point 5 until there are no more sections to proof-listen to.
Many thanks!
