Marabella -

Sections 17 and 18 are PL OK - beautiful readings!

Lynda
Thank you so much, Lynda! I would love to claim 58 and 59 again, if that's okay!

Re: [SHORT STORIES] Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz; translated by Helena Frank (1872-1954 - mas

Hi there! I am so sorry - I must have missed them when reviewing the posts for this book. You might not know that I took over from the BC who started this book when she disappeared so that we could get it finished. It was her job to put these things in the MW. I will put them in now and listen to t...

Re: [SHORT STORIES] Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz; translated by Helena Frank (1872-1954 - mas

Hi Lynda, Why were sections 17 and 18 orphaned? Section 17 should be here: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_17_peretz_128kb.mp3 [30:01] and section 18 here: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_18_peretz_128kb.mp3 [19:09] Had been waiting to he...

Re: ~[SHORT STORIES] Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz; translated by Helena Frank (1872-1954 - mas

I'm so glad it was helpful, Lola! Haha, if it weren't for Röfeh and Mädel I would have spent a lifetime trying to google-decipher these myself. And like I said, I may still be wrong! I've been learning standardized Yiddish but there's different dialects, and Peretz presumably spoke Lithuanian Yiddis...

Okay, here's Section 18: Days of the Messiah! https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_18_peretz_128kb.mp3 [20:00] I recorded this and ch 17 with a different audio setup than usual, so they're on the quieter side of the allowable range. Anything I do in future will use my other...

Happy October, everyone! *insert ghost emoji here* I'm so so sorry this took so long; I learned a lot about what NOT to do in sound engineering, trying to manually clean these 30 short minutes of audio. Thank you so much for the extension, and I'll try to get the next one in much sooner. (If it's ok...

Re: [OPEN] Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz; translated by Helena Frank (1872-1954 - mas

That was a perfect and beautiful recording MaraBella! All you need to do now is trim the end to 5 seconds as all recordings need only 5 seconds at the end and then it will be PL OK. So please do that and re-post the link and time and I will check it and then mark it PL OK! What a long recording for...

Hi, thanks for all your hard work! Here's section 5, "Married": https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_05_peretz_128kb.mp3 50:23 (Note: There are 10 seconds of silence at the end because it's over 30 minutes. Let me know if you want me to cut it back to 5!) Edit: I had to fin...

Hi! Here's section 9. So sorry this took so long! I kept waiting for my allergies to clear up and then... life caught up with me. So I'm just embracing the nasality for now, to get these done! https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/storiesandpictures_09_peretz_128kb.mp3 32:27 I'll try to get se...

Re: [OPEN] Stories and Pictures by I. L. Peretz; translated by Helena Frank (1872-1954 - mas

Mara, If you include a footnote, the standard way to to that is as Elsie has indicated, say "footnote", read the footnote, and then say "end footnote." Do not add any translations of your own. If the footnote contains something that's in another language, either leave it out, or read it as is. We d...

I would just have you trust your judgement on what to include. If you want to, you can distinguish the footnotes from the text by saying “footnote” “end footnote”.
Awesome! I will do that - distinguishing that way is brilliant.

Thanks!

Hi, Elsie and MaryAnn! I have a question about footnotes. This work is full of them, and most of them are clarifications of cultural significance that can be inferred (for example - and you can click on the number to see the text they apply to - http://www.gutenberg.org/files/37242/37242-h/37242-h.h...

Re: [CHINA/LIT] The Dream of the Red Chamber II by Cao - availle

Ok, sorry this took so long! I had to redo a bunch because I recorded when I had a cold... and I think that threw the sound balance off :( but hopefully it will still be ok!
