Re: [FIC] A House Divided Against Itself by Margaret Oliphant - lt

Hi Lynnet

I was going to try to do Chapters 2 and 3 of a House Divided but my work has picked up recently and I don't have the time to do it anymore.

I'll check again when things quieten down but in the meantime, perhaps someone else would want to give them a go.

Again, sorry.

Amending the wording of a book if it is just wrong

Is it ok to amend an author's text if they have just quite obviously got a word or a tense wrong or is considered bad form?

Re: One Minute test for critique please

Hi I've been going through some of the tutorial videos on Librivox for how to use Audacity and tweak the sound and am hopefully getting there now. I have also changed microphone to a plantronics headset which seems to cut out some of the hiss that I was originally getting. https://librivox.org/uploa...

Re: One Minute test for critique please

Hi Linny, thanks for the helpful info. I've been playing about with noise reduction and have uploaded a new reading, though I found the text in this one much harder but I am hoping to eventually add a chapter to an ongoing book: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test3_shellbellinnes.mp3 Many thanks...
