Here is a list of questions people have asked, and answers given. These are taken from the Need help? Got Advice? forum.


Help with the Forum

Forum topics not being marked as read

Q: When browsing into a topic, then going back to the forum via navigation links (not the BACK button), the topic is still being marked "Unread".

A: Try deleting your cookies and see if it helps. (Answer provided by RuthieG in this thread.)

Log on problems

Q: After entering my correct user name and password to log on, these appear to be accepted. However, I find that I am not logged on when the main forum screen opens.

A: Delete your Librivox cookies, close and then restart your browser. (Screenshots of this process in Firefox by RuthieG in this post.)


Help with the Catalog

Changing Catalog info

Q: I want to change my catalog Name/URL.

A: You may do so by asking any Admin. Please note that the changes cannot be made retroactive, which means that information in pages already catalogued will stay the same (due to static pages), and the changes will only show up on pages catalogued after the change has been made.


Help with Audacity

Problem selecting wave

Q: When I try to select part of the audio, I can only select in blocks of 1 seconds; I can't select anything under 1 second.

A: Make sure to uncheck the Snap to box at the bottom of the Audacity window.

Problem with sampling rate

Q: My track has the wrong sampling rate, and when I try to change it, my voice sounds funny.

A: The rate should be 44100Hz. Use the drop-down menu at the bottom right corner of the Audacity window ("Project Rate (Hz)") to change the sampling rate. It shouldn't affect how your voice sounds.
