at about 1:56 "Seplasiae" is double read

at about 5:33 "yet as they" is double read
at about 8:53 "may have existed" is read as "might have existed"
at about 13:04 "The best" is read as "The next best"
at about 16:00 "We know in fact the Scilly..." is double read
at about 17:22 "What" is double read


Thanks!!
Thanks! I didn't change the one at 3:31, because I thought my changes were adding too much awkwardness for too little meaning change there, but thanks for noting them all!

I made all PL changes except 1: "at about 8:48, "because salt never can" is read as "because salt can never"" - as it seems the mere word reversal doesn't change the meaning.

Hi Laurence,

Your recording is yet to be PL'ed. In the meantime, though, would you please amplify the file by -9 db? I am trying to keep them at 89 db ± 2. Yours hits at 97 db.

Thank you,
Sienna

Carol,

whenever you upload new files please make sure they are named exactly the same as the old ones!
In this batch, file #12 was okay, the other two were not (they had an extra _(2) at the end!).

I have changed the filenames at the server, so the links from the magic window will play and point to the new files; but I'd rather not do that every time somebody uploads new files :wink:
Cheers, Ava.

Hi,

Section 13 is still at 92 dB.
I will do the de-amplification and upload. Unless you mind me doing so. :)

Thanks,
Sienna

Hi Sienna,
Sorry for the mess up. I had deleted my original files and had to alter them from mp3, which I had never done before, and found it a little confusing. Please make any changes you think are necessary.

Spot PL notes:
at about 5:37 "of" is double read or maybe it is just a glitch..

It is difficult to tell, but there may not be a 0.5-1s silence at the beginning. How can I go about identifying a 0.5s silence?
