Re: [HISTORY] The Cambridge Modern History. Volume 02, The Reformation - Leni

I would like to put in for Section 40 (unless someone else has an eye on that chapter).

Re: [TRAVEL] Syria: the Desert and the Sown by Gertrude Bell - lt

If no one else has plans for it, I'd like to give Chapter 2 a try. Great, thanks! I see there's a footnote in the text. I don't know if there's a Librivox standard for those. This is how I've heard it handled in other audiobooks: "Text of passage. Footnote: text of footnote. Slight pause. Text of p...

Re: [TRAVEL] Syria: the Desert and the Sown by Gertrude Bell - lt

I’m willing to try my hand at Chapter 4. The Arabic names are a little daunting, to say the least, but I’ll give them my best shot. Appreciated! :) Michael Got sidetracked by life, but I recorded the "first draft" of Chapter IV this morning. I will edit it and check it against the text tomorrow, an...

Section 53 (Chapter 14 part 4) has been uploaded for review. https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/cambridgemodernhistory2_53_128kb.mp3 File size, according to the uploader, is 26.42mb. (I get different answers from my OS and from the Checker app; I assume the uploader number is the one that counts.) Du...

Re: [HISTORY] The Cambridge Modern History. Volume 02, The Reformation - Leni

I've uploaded Section 52 for review: Just one small issue: the silence at the end needs to be shortened to ~5 sec. Currently almost 9 seconds. Thanks, Michael !!!! Will fix and get it back tomorrow. I got some feedback from an in-house critic and long-time audiobook listener (my wife) who thinks I ...

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/cambridgemodernhistory2_52_128kb.mp3

File size is 28.19mb, track length is 29m 22s.

This is certainly an educational project! I'd only ever encountered the Duke of Somerset as a footnote in my previous reading.

Re: [HISTORY] The Cambridge Modern History. Volume 02, The Reformation - Leni

I have uploaded Section 68 for review (Chapter 18 - Part 2) I've uploaded Section 51 for review. Both are PL OK! Michael Thanks! In that case.... I’d like to put in a bid for the remaining two parts of Chapter 14, sections 52 and 53. I believe that I can complete both by the end of January if that’...

Here it is: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/cambridgemodernhistory2_50_128kb.mp3. If this is acceptable, please put me down for Section 51 as well. Thank you!

Re: [HISTORY] The Cambridge Modern History. Volume 02, The Reformation - Leni

Here is section 50: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/cambridgemodernhistory2_50_128kb.mp3 Length is 33 min 42 sec. At about 20:15, which is where I'd stopped and resumed, there's a notable difference in tone. I'm not aware of anything I did different in terms of setting or microphone placement, or...
