Hi Helen,

I'm really sorry about that. I must have missed those when I was checking the recording.

Here it is, again.

sect 3 Chapter 3

PL notes:
03:02 slight stumble,
06:29 slight stumble, then a repeated line "listening to the roar..."
09:35: incomplete sentence..(dialogue moves on).

Amy, at this point I stopped listening.
Amy, since you are new at recording, may I suggest listening to your recording before submitting it for PL

Hello,

I'm really really sorry about that. I guess it's just taking me longer than expected to get used to listening to and editing recordings correctly.

I've checked it again, so it should be good.

* Third Time for sect 3
These are the same errors as last three times and I am stopping at the same place. However, now,
I am stepping down as DPL for this project.
Amy, you have my best wishes.

Hello,

I am really, really sorry about that. I think that something went wrong as I uploaded it. I fixed the mistakes, but perhaps, the edited recording did not get saved.

I have re listened to it now and edited it, so I really think it will be good this time.

Thanks for letting me know, Helen. I understand that you're no longer able to help with this project. Thank you for the help you have given!

Jo, how do I go about looking for a new DPL?

Thanks!

[b][color=blue]This solo project is looking for proof-listeners. A [url=http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/Glossary#d][u]DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener)[/u][/url] would be preferred, but until one is found we need PL for completed sections.[/color][/b]

[*][b]Level of PL[/b]: Standard 
[*][b]Please consider these points during proof-listening and comment on them as appropriate:[/b] 
[list][*]Do the intro and disclaimer match the instructions at the bottom of this post (below the magic window)? 
[*]Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time. 
[*]Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time. 
[*]Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading? 
[*]Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?) 
[*]Are the correct closing words used at the end of the recording (see instructions in the first post of the project thread, below the Magic Window)? 
[*]Are there 5 seconds of silence (10 if the recording is more than 30 minutes long) at the end of the file?[/list]
