Correction done on the PL Notes listed. Also pronunciations changed to match those shown. If it needs more work let me know. Thanks.

Firstly, let me say you did not need to change all those pronunciations, so thank you putting the effort in.

There are still a couple of things that need to be changed:
  • The volume needs to be lowered. It should be 86-92dB, while you're at 94.2dB.
  • 30:23: You can't use a text to speech generator in the recording (especially one that's not French...). It's more important that you record something yourself than the pronunciation being correct.
Less important, you left 'coquelicot' unchanged at 24:33 and 24:43.

Also, your edits sound quite different to the original recording (for example, at about 38:46 there's a noticeable change going from "for the express purpose of" to "buying waistcoats."). Did you record differently? I don't think this needs to be fixed but perhaps in the future, try to replicate the original sound or don't change between the two recordings mid-sentence.

You seem to have re-recorded a lot of this. Should I do another full PL?

Right, only a couple of things that need changing:

04:06: 'extraordinary' should be 'ordinary'
04:14: 'unusual' should be 'usual'

Then it will be finally done!

Re-uploaded notes for PlannerPaula (You don't need to re-upload the files as I had a copy):

Chapter 6:

00:00: Your silence at the beginning is a bit too long. You need 0.5-1.0 seconds, and you've got nearly 1.5 seconds
11:12: '1719' should be '1710'
13:19: '(Cowper)' is missing after the poem
14:20: '(Crabbe)' is missing after the poem
16:13: '(Sir Walter Besant, London in the Eighteenth Century.)' is missing after quote
20:43: Your silence at the end is too long. You need 5 seconds, and you have 8.4 seconds

Chapter 12:

01:05: '(From Family MSS. quoted by Constance Hill, in Jane Austin, Her Homes and Her Friends.)' is missing after quote
10:49: 'iron cast' should be 'cast-iron'
13:52: 'regarded' should be 'rendered'

You've got a bit of a problem with plosives. (see the 'd' of 'recordings' at 00:07 or the 't' of 'times' at 00:16 in Chapter 6). Now, don't worry about it in these recordings, but I'd recommend trying out microphone placements when next recording to see if you can reduce them a bit. This wiki page might help.
