Hi Kristin
I can DPL this for you (assuming you only want standard PL, i.e. not checking the text)
This is my favourite part of Proust and I have a commercial audio recording of it which I listen to regularly. So I am happy to listen to it again 😺

Thank you Alan for volunteering!

Standard PL is fine by me!

In that case, Alan is in as DPL, and we can go over to Going Solo! :thumbs:

Hi Kristin
I have listened to section 2, run Checker on it and marked it PL OK in MW.
Nicely read :thumbs: It is not an easy read as the sentences are often long and convoluted.

I don't know if you want comments on pronunciation of French proper names, but I think Quai d'Orsay should be pronounced with a K-sound rather than Q. Obviously not worth changing here but perhaps something to keep in mind. :D

Proust certainly was liberal with the use of the comma and semi-colon.

I will likely fix the name, if only because I like pronouncing things correctly.

Section 3 is ready for PL! A little longer than I wanted it to be, but that M. de Norpois is very chatty.

Section 3 is PL OK but I cannot access the MW to change the status. This is odd because I could access it last week.

Yes, that is odd. Nothing has changed on our end. You're still in as DPL, so you should have access. I know it sounds simplistic, but have you tried logging out of the workflow and logging back in?

Yes, that worked. I think perhaps I did not logout after my last access. I will do so in future :thumbs:
The simple solutions are usually the right ones
