Hey everyone, I asked for sections 52 and 53 a few weeks ago, but I'm not going to be able to record them in a reasonable time frame, so I'd like to forfeit them.

Re: One Minute Test

Thanks for the bump. I got distracted. It's much better! It's OK for our purposes now! :clap: However, I would suggest some noise reduction to take care of the background white noise. Here are a couple resources: text instructions: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noisecleaning_With_Pics video, b...

Re: One Minute Test

Sorry, it seems to have all gone mad and repeated my posts. Also, I seem to be unable to check these One Minute Tests in Checker, either by dragging and dropping, or cut and paste. I'm sure it worked a while back, or am I going crazy? (That would not surprise me ...) Hmm that is interesting. Sorry ...
