Chapter 5 notes:

At 1:24, the text has "the bent and venerable Major and Mrs. Ward; lawyer Riverson,". Reading has mayor instead of Major. (Tom's town wasn't big enough to have two mayors.)
Oops! Good catch. Fixed:

Re: GROUP: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain - philc

Hey would you change the link to the text to be the main page for that book? It's kinda irritating to be sent to the html version if a reader wants plaintext or kindle. And the database should have the main page listed, not the html page. This is the correct url: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/74 T...

Re: Can I use my phone to record?

Twisted Wave has a very nice user interface and is fun to use, especially on an iPad! Very intuitive. I've done some tests and I'd say the recording quality is no worse than an inexpensive USB mic, so certainly good enough. I'll submit a poem pretty soon and post the link here.

Re: Can I use my phone to record?

You could use an iPhone to record, edit, master (i.e., apply compression, limiter, etc.) and export as a 128kb MP3 using TwistedWave, which I think costs like $5 for iPhone and iPad.

Re: Need recording advice from seasoned readers

I don't do much editing, so it's a lot faster for me. I guess around 1.5 hours of editing for a 1-hour recording. Maybe 2 hours if it's a really complicated text and I make a ton of errors. When I make an error while recording, I snap my fingers to leave a big spike in the recording, then re-read th...

Yeah, there has been discussion in the admin forum about putting the code on github. I don't know what became of that plan -- not my area of expertise! If you post ...
