Great! Thanks, Kara. In general, do we have any way of knowing how often our files are downloaded?

Thank you very much, Chris, but it's sorted now. It's possible that yousendit simply didn't display the link until they were sure the new interface was working properly.

Kara, since you're after a few more, I'm sending Kublai Khan via yousendit. I'll just have to search around for new poems for the next volume. I've just found that yousendit now gives you the link to your file again ... perhaps it had been lost during the changeover. So here you go: http://s44.youse...

Thank you both; yes, it is a very hard read. Lots of empathy in the eye of the watcher. Be interesting to see how many readers we get. Yousendit are displaying the link to saved files again, so here's my version: http://s49.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=2MHJMG4N5UX922P2F2RFEYYFRX There are a lot of his wa...

Kara, I don't know if the url has been changed since your note, but out of curiosity, I had a go at downloading those chapters and it seemed to work ok. Over 30 Mb, so I didn't complete the download, though.

Thanks, Kirsten: nice work. One thing: could you post the librivox prefix ("This is a librivox recording ...) here, please, and I'll merge it with your file.

Hello, Anderlma; dive in and try the water. A mike, a soundcard, free software, and a reasonably quiet room, and you're away. I'm drumming up readers for the Weekly Poem, so do have a go!

Of course; my apologies: THE ROAD The road is thronged with women; soldiers pass And halt, but never see them; yet they're here-- A patient crowd along the sodden grass, Silent, worn out with waiting, sick with fear. The road goes crawling up a long hillside, All ruts and stones and sludge, and the ...

Thanks, Hugh .. but I do start out with a certain advantage, having spoken with an english accent for all my life (barring a few initial years). I do an awful american accent. There you go, converted to mono and 16 bit mp3. I left the librivox preamble on both, in case it's needed for some legal rea...

Thank you very much: I rather like doing a cultured british voice ... remnants of liking the Jeeves books when I was at school. Don't like them so much now ... possibly because Bertie's brainless idiocy irritates me. If I listen to my mp3 though my computer, it's fine through the speakers, but throu...

Sound effects *plus* narration? ... these projects will need a producer (correct word?) to go through the play, generating appropriate narrative text and marking for sound effects. Perhaps eventually, a separate area in the forum for plays and other collaborative productions? ** I've just listened t...

Hugh, nice intonation. You're right about the hiss; Audacity *seemed* to remove it really well, but did very odd things to your voice; a shame.

Welcome, Wendi,

Have a lovely time .... and I'll be putting a wonderfully sad poem on the weekly poem list for you on Monday, just to bring you down to earth ... or go for one of Grimm's fairy tales; they're fun.
