"Cuéntame algo" -- Recording Procedures: Student or faculty/staff?

Explains how to download Audacity and the LAME encoder to record and create an MP3 file

How to get your recording done

If you're a student, congratulations! You're lending your talents and efforts to a program that brings the joy of books and stories to an underserved audience in one of the most impoverished cities in the United States.

You'll be making your recordings in the Language Resource Center (de Francesco 107) or the office of Rohrbach librarian Bruce Jensen (RL 25C). The necessary software is already in place in both locations.

If you're a KU faculty/staff member, thank you too! You have the option of doing your recordings in de Francesco 107 or in Rohrbach Library 25C, or at your own computer. If you choose this last option, you'll want to pay close attention to the Downloading Audacity tab in this guide.

All who record with Cuéntame algo can learn from the Using Audacity tab.

Questions? Get in touch with Dr. Dawn Slack or Bruce Jensen.
