Re: Is this Audacity or my microphone?

You might try some other recorder. In Windows 10, you can search for "voice recorder". You should be able to tell whether it, too, is recording too quietly.

In Audacity, View/Toolbars and show the Mixer Toolbar. Make sure your microphone and playback sliders are set to their maximum.

Re: Learning The History Of Librivox

It might be worth noting the cleanup months and their statistics ... but possibly messy to find them.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

I went back and checked a scan of the book, too, when I wondered about the numbers.

Section 80 PL okay.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Section 79 PL okay.

It's difficult to see what the numbers in those two tables of working skills of the vagrants mean. ... but we're drowning in numbers by this time!

Re: ~OPEN[DRs]DR Scene and Story Collection, Volume 003 - thw

Reading the narrator for Alice's Tea Party, there's a line highlit for the dormouse which I think is actually one of Alice's: Alice did not quite know what to say to this: so she helped herself to some tea and bread-and-butter, and then turned to the Dormouse, and repeated her question. Dormouse: “W...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Section 77 PL okay!

We're rattling along. I've really got to settle to recording volume 1 again; you put me to shame.

I have a busy rest-of-the-week, though.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Thanks for all that work, Gill. PL perfect following the corrections, except ..... and I'm sorry that I missed it on my first pass ... in "... many of them provinge shifters, lyvinge by cozeninge, stealinge ..." you've had them "lying and cozening", rather than "living by cozening" (33.58) Change it...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Gill, PL notes for Section 77 The Carrying Trade 2620 "Prescriptive right, and the laws and by-laws of the corporation ..." Read as "rights" [I wouldn't have mentioned this, but if you're correcting others, you might tidy up this one.] 2710 "... what constitutes the business of a fellowship-porter."...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Thanks, Gill; I've not listened to your recording yet, but, for me, I'd try to read that stuff as if I were making an attempt to read Chaucer in the original, perhaps with just those terminal and near-terminal "e"'s pronounced.

I'll PL tomorrow and get back to you.

Re: FULL [DR] Four Noncanonical Sherlock Holmes Short Stories by Arthur Conan Doyle - mtf

I'd forgotten that we have all the readers' parts' acknowledgments, so here's the first section, preceded by the dramatis personae:
