There's an issue with the bit-rate in this recording. The reading itself is perfect. :thumbs:
You'll just need to open the file in Audacity and export again, taking care that the Quality is set to 128 kbps. Hopefully that should fix it!

I didn't even look at the bit rate. This should work better.
It'll be another few of weeks before I can get another part in, feels like a school assignment... At least you can concentrate on other things. See you soon

Yes, it's now perfect! Marked PL OK in the Magic Window :thumbs:

Well, if it was a school assignment you'd get A plus :D

This is part 4. Hopefully all good.
I won't be able to get to the next part for about 3-4 weeks. I don't mind if you need to open the book up for others to read to finish it off. Work has really been overwhelming lately, I thought COVID would slow things down...
Anyway, I'll try and get the next part done asap. I don't mind doing the whole book, it's just that it may take a while.

Thank you, Eitel! All good with Part 4! PL OK! :thumbs:

If it's something that offers you pleasure and you look forward to it when you get the free time, then I don't think you should quit. If it's a hobby that helps you escape from the daily stress, I wouldn't want to deprive you of it.
But if it creates extra stress on top of your hectic schedule, then it stops being fun, and you should leave it for when things are more relaxed. There'll always be interesting projects to read for. :D
Tell me how you feel :?:

thanks Rapunzelina. Doing this is a nice little side hobby that is a bit of fun and a good distraction. Definitely not stressful.
Like I mentioned, I don't mind continuing this book to completion, it'll just take a little longer than I expected.
I'll let you know if it starts getting in the way of things for me. It might be time for a break and start later down the track. But at the moment, I'll chip away at this book :thumbs:
thanks again, see you soon
