I think we do the same thing, Linny, I'm just not good at describing it. I did get a response from the Audacity help forum with some good suggestions. I'll give those ideas a try and if they don't work, I'll keep trying.

Thanks,

And by not being good at describing it, I mean that they are saved as Audacity files.

On another point, I need to establish keywords--can they be phrases? And I need to write a description/synopsis of the book for its release--is there a length limit?

Finally, as a matter of protocol, I have another solo project with an MC and DPL already signed on, which I will start once I have finished recording this project, but there is yet another that I would like to do. Do members typically work on more than one project at a time?

Thanks,

Some do work on multiple projects. Honestly I thinks it whatever keeps you motivated to record and doesn't annoy your DPL because you are either too fast for them or too slow. I've seen DPLs leave a project if there hasn't been anything to listen to in over a month. Relax, enjoy, you'll find the right pace. I would suggest not starting the third project until you get the Audacity issues worked out.

Section 11 has just a little correction. At 24:19, there is a repetition: "it is so named...".

Wow, what an interesting chapter! First, I love the term archeology of floor coverings :D Also, I could never learn cross stitch properly, even though I did embroider a bit as a teenager. I had no idea how old it was though!

Thanks, Leni. I'll get the repeat in section 11 fixed. I have uploaded the corrected version of Section 10 (Chapter 10). :clap: I still haven't figured out the problem with Audacity, but it affected only that file. (I still had it saved on the original computer, so I just switched out the hardware long enough to fix that chapter, export it, and upload it.) I have been able to export everything else successfully, which brings me to the next point. I have recorded several of the shorter chapters and will begin uploading them. Again, you should feel no pressure to get to them; the problem is my schedule. I was originally scheduled to have training on only a few days in each of the next two weeks, but now it is every day, Monday through Friday, all day. On the other hand, I was supposed to be in training four days this week but instead, only one. :roll: I have been using the extra time to work on this project in hopes of staying on track to have it entirely in your hands (or is it ears?) by mid-August.

Thanks again,

Joanne

I've done a little bit of everything, I guess, but cross-stitch has never been a favorite--too hard to follow those little charts! And I would think that cross-stitch rugs would constantly snag? Who knows!

Leni, I've eliminated the repeat in section 11 and reposted the corrected version for your spot check. I've also posted sections 18-21, each of which is fairly short, whenever you get around to them. Thanks much,

Joanne

Section 12, repetition @25:11 - "Oriental designs are not lacking...". Also, at the end, there should be an outro: "End of Section 12"

Leni, I've fixed section 12 and reposted it for your spot check. With respect to it (and the later sections), should the outro be end of a section or end of a chapter or both?

:hmm:

I usually use end of Section, because not always the Section and the Chapter correspond, but people use Chapter as well. I don't think it makes much of a difference, the point is to have an outro so the listener knows that is really the end of the reading, and that the file wasn't somehow cut in the middle.

Section 13:
@25:59, a repetition " A little knack..."

I was glad to hear that "the idiosyncrasies of the hand" are the "charm of handcraft" - that is how I am going to name all my mistakes in crocheting :lol: :lol: :lol:

Then there's the Amish justification: only God can make perfection!

Leni, I've fixed the repeat in section 13 and uploaded the corrected version for your spot check.

Thanks,

Joanne
