Re: [solo] Dr. Doolittle's Post Office - philc

Sections 3,4,5,6 all now PL OK! :clap: I'm turning in early tonight, ipad in hand, so I'm gonna knock out a few more sections of PL-ing before I sleep!

Re: Coffee Break Collection 026 - It's a Small World - lt

Thanks! Also, please let me know how it sounds. I have a new computer and even though I'm using the same software, same mike and headphones, and recording in place I've used before, it sounded very different when I was editing!

Re: [SOLO] Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan by Lafcadio Hearn - kiki

Section 2 is PL OK -- I don't think it's necessary to fix unless you want to, but the pause at the end is a little bit long, running 8-9 seconds instead of 5. Going forward try to keep to 5 seconds.

Section 6 -- last one for right now -- all okay but Checker is not happy with volume again. You won't believe it, this time it says too low! Checker reads it as 85.2...

Re: [solo] Dr. Doolittle's Post Office - philc

That's because I changed it before I posted here, and then went and did section 5 as well.

Notes for both: all fine except volume high again. 93.3 and 93.4 respectively.

I'm aiming to read 52 books (a book a week) again, and also have a goal of 52 graphic novels in 52 weeks. I include in my counting the books I read in full here either for recording or prooflistening, and full-length audiobooks I listen to. I don't count works under 80 or so pages as a full length w...

Re: British Victorian (and other) periodicals

I just came across this while digging around in the depths of the suggestions board, and thought it was worth bumping back up to the top as RuthieG did a bunch of work putting this together and it's a great list for anyone who is looking for ideas for short fiction and nonfiction pieces to read!

Don't worry about times, I keep track of those separately. :thumbs: EDIT: This book, while very entertaining, is very much euro-centric and endows English cu...
