The Cat and the Mouse: the volume is fine now. Only there is now quite a lot of background noise... it probably got amplified along with the rest of the recording. It would be great if you could do some noisecleaning. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noisecleaning_With_Pics

The Tale of Samuel Whiskers: all tech. settings are fine. The volume is almost too loud. (95 dB) For future recordings don't let it get any lourder.
There are just a few things that need to be fixed:

The silence at the beginning is a little too long. It should be 0,5-1 sec.

3:30 stumble
They even fetched a candle, and looked inside a clothes chest in one of the attics.

8:10 stumble
He scrambled up and up; but before he reached the chimney top he came to a place where somebody had loosened a stone in the wall. There were some mutton bones lying about—

10:50 stumble
He pushed it in front of him with his paws, like a brewer's man trundling a barrel.

12:45 stumble
"I do not think"—said Samuel Whiskers, pausing to take a look at Tom Kitten

14:30 stumble
John Joiner smelt the pudding; but he regretted that he had not time to stay to dinner, because he had just finished making a wheel-barrow for Miss Potter, and she had ordered two hen-coops.

The silence at the end should be 5 secs.

When you re-upload your recording please use the following filename: childrensshortworks018_taleofsamuelwhiskers_fb (there should be underscores in the filename)

I found this section of the Potter book. May I read it? The Pie and the Patty-Pan
***** This file should be named 15234-h.htm or 15234-h.zip *****
This and all associated files of various formats will be found in:

I'm 75 years old and used to have all these books. Whatever happens to all those wonderful editions?

I recorded The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan by Beatrix Potter (1866-1943), read from the gtenberg etext. I tried to put it in the checker with the file name childrensshortworks018_thepienadthepattypan_mak.mp3 The checker said it wasn't the correct name or couldn't recognize it to check. Did I type the wrong file name?
Please advise me as to what I should do next.(I'll write down the time, too.)

Hi maryagneskatherine!

The filename looks fine to me. All you need to do is drag and drop the file into the checker. Here is a good video on how to use the checker programm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkhk0megqHE&feature=youtu.be

Did you upload your file? I just had a quick look, but can't find it anywhere.
