PL Notes section 23

-text reading is PL-Ok, but I think Jane had done too much noise cleaning. There were weird tinny metal sound everywhere and sudden cuts around the middle and near the end. Can you please take a listen CK?

ill check on the noisecleaning later today (when i find a quiet spot in my parents' house). and as to the breathing sounds -- you dont have to cut this out at all, the listeners are happy to know that you are alive ;)

since april heard the background noise, it may be better to noise clean.
Ok, noise-cleaning done, but I still was unable to find the problem at 02:45, so if it is still there I will try and re-record the section if you let me know from where to where.

the sound of section 23 is good, ill mark it pl ok :)

noel, we are not aiming for perfection. please upload the section with noisecleaning done and we will accept it of course. noisecleaning is important because background noise can be really annoying if you listen in a quiet environment with headphones on, because then it becomes so prominent :)

section 13

the reading is pl ok, only the volume is at 86 db while we aim at 89. 87 is where we start to accept it as "close enough" :)

since you mentioned cutting out your breathing noise, let me comment on that -- i noticed it only a few times, so it is all good. the thing with cutting out breathing is that it moves the parts of the sentence between which you took a breath unnaturally close together, which may irritate some readers. i personally like to know that i am being read to by a living human being, who occasionally breathes. but there are some readers who really cant stand to hear themselves breathing. thats fine, but a better way to fix this might be to de-amplify the sound, because in that way the natural pause is preserved (if you paste complete silence there it will also sound strange).

but yes, the volume is the only thing id like you to fix :)

hah, I used to silence the breathing before along with the clicking my mouth would make to leave some pause... but this time I had to cut them because I needed to stop speaking every once in a while. When I listened in Audacity the flow sounded natural after I cut the big gaps, but when I listened to it again in media player, it sounded like I never breathed at all :P
