From Bangkok to Bombay (Siam, French Indo-China, Burma and Hindustan) by Frank G. Carpenter (1855 - 1924).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/from-bangkok-to-bombay-by-frank-g-carpenter/

Another entry in Carpenter's geographical reader series with information on the peoples, cultures, and everyday life of this Asian area. ( BettyB)
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/frombangkoktobom00carp/n13/mode/2up
    .
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
    .
    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    • If you wish, say:

This is a solo project for just one reader.

Look for projects with the word (GROUP) at the beginning if you are looking for a new section to read.

Good luck.

On the board index for the forums (index.php), look on the threads marked "readers wanted". There are separate groups for poems, books and dramatic works (like plays).

Everything in those three groups is open and looking for readers.

Betty,
Please check for a pause on 9 at about 3.12. I thought it sounded a bit long.

And on 10, please check for a repeat at 10.08 of "king had a palace"

Hard to listen to some of this. Poor 🐘, criminals and miners!

Betty,

On 15, there's a weird sound at 8.49 - like the record player was skipping, except that can't be happening. Can you take a listen?

Same on section 16 at 11.58.

That's odd, but I downloaded the files and opened them in Audacity just to make sure it wasn't a problem with my internet connection, and the glitch was in both files. :hmm:

This has been happening once in awhile since the Internet traffic exploded. Something happens in the transmission and I get a
momentary hitch and the text backs up and then continues Will fix and upload.

Hmm. That's interesting. I'm going to go back and relisten to what I've already done. I seem to recall hearing that bump before, but I wrote it off to the problem being on my side because I was listening on my phone. I want to check to make sure it's not more of the same.

And Section 13 has a glitch at 15.19.

I'm sorry that I missed these. I just assumed it was something with the download speed as I was listening on my phone.
