Re: [TRAVEL] The Travels of Ibn Batuta by Ibn Batuta - tg

Hi all, just wanted to touch base, I am still working on this, I got a bit distracted starting a new job, having parents in town, and a sore throat. Back in action now and expect to have this done in the next week. I think you'll like it when its done.

Re: أحتاج مساعدة في تسجيل العبارات العربية

Hi Sara, Great to hear from you! Thank you for that video too. I definitely need all the Arabic in the main body of the text. Footnotes are optional, but I'd like to do them as well so if you can record the Arabic there too that would be awesome. Your voice is great :thumbs: I'd love to have you rec...
