Pronounce it however seems best. 30 is yours :)

Chapter 30 is recorded. St. John is SO stuffy. And for the record, I went with "sinjin" in the pronunciation. Editing should follow over the weekend.

Hi Kri,

Chapter 30 is on your uploader. Time is 24:05. You can credit me as Judy Bieber in the catalogue, no URL, etc.

Thanks! Judy

Becky, it looks like you've got almost an hour of silence at the end of your recording. I searched and found the "End of chapter 29" so I know I have the whole recording, but after that it's silence for a looong long time. Do you have the original version that you can cut that silence off, and re-send it to me? I can cut the silence off myself, but I'd prefer if you did it with an original WAV or audacity file. This is because if I open the MP3 and start editing it, it may lose (albeit a small amount) some of the sound quality.

I fixed the hour of silence - I don't know how it happened - it didn't show on my Goldwave screen, I don't think. I've switched to Audacity now.

Just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten about you--I've got chapter 10 recorded, but haven't a chance to finish editing it yet. Hopefully, that'll happen this weekend. I recorded the first half of chapter 11, and then had some problems trying to read Adela's and Jane's conversation in French--I'm going to do a bit of research to figure out how to pronounce certain words, so as to not completely butcher it. Does anyone have any tips for a non-French speaker?

Other notes on pronounciation--I've just read "-shire" as "shire," (and like "the Shire" in the Lord of the Rings. Should I go back and re-record those bits, or do you think it could stand as it is?

Thanks!
Claire

Hi, There are actualy a few threads that ask for Frrench pronounciation which you can find here:

http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2880

You can post the words there and someone will come along (hopefully) and record pronounciations for you. :)

Thanks for the fixed file Becky :)

The way you did shire is fine; it's not really an integral part of the story. That's one of the difficult things about older books. They do a lot of that -(blank) stuff. Some people would say it blank-shire, some-shire, shire, or whatever. The listener will understand.

Chapter 33 is done:

There was an increase in background noise long about the 25-minute mark (mike pickup was accidentally jacked up, plus it was The Week Of Heat, so the fans were on more than usual). I attempted to solve the issue by knocking down the amplitude by ~3 db. I'm not entirely happy with the result; if anyone has suggestions for better outcome, I'd be glad to entertain them.
