Re: [Grp/Detective] Call Mr. Fortune by H.C. Bailey - lt

Hi Lynnet. I agree with you on PW. Should have worked on both. Did some months ago when I submitted two. But not now. Just logged in few minutes ago on old password and got in fine. But yesterday, as I wrote, only worked for upload when I got new PW. I know it makes no sense but that was my experien...

Re: [Grp/Detective] Call Mr. Fortune by H.C. Bailey - lt

Finally got it done. Two days. Help desk didn't respond so decided on a new measure. Got a new PW. It appears that the PW to log into LV is different from the PW to upload. That's the only conclusion I can reach. Doesn't make sense but my PW to get into LV worked but not to upload. Go figure. Anyway...

Won't accept my login to upload recording

Hello: Tried several times yesterday and today to upload my recording of section 7 of "Call Mr. Fortune". LV wouldn't accept my login for the upload (BTW, I was already logged in). Every time I was already logged in. On each occasion I closed LV and tried again. So, today I logged out, closed LV, th...

Re: [Weekly Poetry] Trifles by John Charles McNeill - dl

Hello Aradlaw. My apologies. Fyi: Actually, I did try to be careful. I saw that "tags" would be added automatically. Knew that was "MP3" but unsure about 128kb. Anyway, had Checker assess my recording. It wouldn't accept my recording which had "128kb" in the title so I assume that this was a tag lik...

Re: [Weekly Poetry] Trifles by John Charles McNeill - dl

I'm thinking about recording Trifles. But, you already have nine submissions with room for eleven more. Same poem. So, after you have your twenty, what do you do next? Pick the best? Publish it as a completed project with all twenty, LV readers selecting their favorite reader? No criticism just can'...

Re: 1 Minute Test

Hi Lymie. First of all, my thanks for ALL your work. As you know, I've listened to many test recordings. I can think of no reader-wannabe who's been more needy than I or an evaluator more generous with time and thoughtful suggestions. I listened again to the new (second) recording. You're absolutely...

Re: 1 Minute Test

Hi Lymie. You didn't offend me in the slightest. You set a high bar which I won't be satisfied until I meet it. All that I wrote about "studying for the test" is accurate. Just add many hours to it. This is quite a challenge for me and I'm determined to do my best. I'm glad you drew the short straw ...

Re: 1 Minute Test

Thanks for your reply. No problem on the noise reduction confusion. I should have inquired because I had my doubts. My fault. Yes, I do think that professionals (of all professions) assume understanding of jargon. But the challenge is just how much do you dumb it down? Difficult. Anyway, unless you ...

Re: 1 Minute Test

Hello again. This is no hassle. You've been very kind with your time. Yes, I did misunderstand your comment "pure noise" and so selected a piece for the profile that was pure vocal. It's clear now this is exactly what you did NOT want. You wanted silence which was my previous understanding of the co...
