Hi! Do you have a dedicated proof listener? If not, I would love to work on this project as a proof listener!

Awesome! Thanks for letting me know!

I just listened to section 10 chapter 14, the King's fire.

1:25 I hear "of wine to the royal hearth" text reads "of wine on the royal hearth" p195 (paragraph 2)

2:59 I hear "condemned" text reads "commanded"

5:04 pause of 3 seconds within sentence. (p197)

8:12 I hear "as possible" text reads "and it is possible" (p199)

The reading is very clear and easy to follow!! I hope my comments will help!

Section 2 sounds great! The portion between ~24:25 and ~25:30 is louder than the rest of the recording. There is also a sudden increase in volume at ~35:05. At ~1:04:05 the word "of" is repeated ("afraid of of offending").

Phoebe,
You are all set up.

As DPL you will toggle the workflow in the Magic Window (MW) from Ready for PL or Ready for Spot check to See PL notes or PL OK.

In order to do that you will need to access the MW. You will need to set up a separate password from your general LV password. Please let me know if you have any problems.

Workflow instructions for BC's and DPL's:

Thanks for sharing that with me! This is my first time as a DPL, but thanks to the instructions you sent over I think I have figured it out!

Section 9 PL notes:

26:23 I hear "seem to be" the text reads "seems to have been"

Other than that it's great!

what is your honest opinion about the change in volume that appears sometimes in earlier sections? I can re record parts, but there is not much i can do to adjust the sound, now that i have a switched to a new microphone since then.
