Here is Section 19

Hi!
If this is fine, I'll be glad to prooflisten section 19 too! I'll be giving feedback on it as soon as I can! :)

Hi Section 18 https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/empressesrome_18_mccabe_128kb.mp3 (44:39) Thanks! Hi michellemo5! Here are my PL notes! I think you read great! And, in fact, I realize that some of the words in the text were in Latin---which made things more difficult! :) I must say I am new to proo...

I just saw that michellemo5 uploaded her recording of section 18! So, if this is fine, I will be PLing it and giving feedback on it as soon as I can! :)
Thanks!

Re: ~GROUP/ANCIENT MEDICINE] Natural History, volume 6, by Pliny the Elder - Leni

Hi Leni!

I realize this project is looking for a DPLer, but I was wondering: could I volunteer to prooflisten only one section or two? (For example, section 1.)

I do realize a DPLer would be preferred; it's only that I feel I can only commit to one or two sections...

Many thanks in any case! :)

Re: [WOMEN BIOGRAPHIES] The Empresses of Rome, by Joseph McCabe-leni

Many thanks for your kind reply and helpful hints, Leni!

So I'll try and keep updated on this project, and be ready for PLing some of those pending sections once they are ready, if this fine! :)

Hoping to be of help—just like others have been of help to me here at LibriVox! :)
Kind regards!

Re: [WOMEN BIOGRAPHIES] The Empresses of Rome, by Joseph McCabe-leni

Hi, Leni! I hope it is OK for me to ask about this project... I think the first post doesn't mention this book has a DPL, but I do see you have proof-listened a number of sections! :) If still looking for some PL for section 18 or 19, I'd be glad to listen to either of them! Thank you in any case! :)

Re: [ANIMALS]The Living Animals of the World, Volume 1: Mammals-Leni

Hello, Rennis. We indeed have a DPLer! When in doubt about it, take a look at the window in the first post. When the project has a DPLer, it says so, right above the list of sections: "This project has a dedicated proof-listener who will listen to all sections:". Projects without a DPLer do not hav...

Re: [ANIMALS]The Living Animals of the World, Volume 1: Mammals-Leni

Hello there! I found this project needing proof-listening of some section, and I wasn't sure if it has a DPL already... so I thought I'd ask! :) Specifically, I saw that section 42 is "Ready for PL", so if nobody is doing that, I'll be glad to! I must say I am new to LibriVox and haven't proof-liste...

Re: One-Minute Test [OK]

Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out!! Just to say I gave it another try...! I found out how to check the background noise using the "Checker"... and the program now tells me that noise is OK! I really was doubting whether to upload again... Here it is if I may... :) https://librivox...

Re: One-Minute Test [OK]

I don't think you need a pop filter. I didn't hear any popping. On the other hand, I suppose it wouldn't hurt anything to set it up. :) If you turn down the gain a little on the mic, then don't move it further away from your mouth. One or the other. (I didn't know you had a gain knob, or I may have...

Re: One-Minute Test [OK]

Thank you so much for your feedback! I think I'll definitely give it (at least!) one more try and see if I can improve it! :) I tried to get a good microphone (if this can help, it's called "Blue"), but I'm not an expert, so I'm not sure I can use it well...! I did apply some noise reduction (with A...
