If someone has the aforementioned sections, they can use what I write in these sections as notes, or take them into consideration.

PL Sections 8,9,10 All ok except for one problem. This problem is occuring in these three chapters (and in others I have heard). At times the volume drops for 1-2 seconds. Sometimes this make the words too low or garbeled to hear, sometimes it is understandable, but does break the flow of the reading. This seems to be a technical problem throughout the book so far. A clue is that the first second of each recording are in this low and odd tone. I have listed only the places for each chapter where I could not understand the words that are in the low volume.
Chapter 8 1:15, 12:4, 1:42, 11:20
Chapter 9 9:11, 11:12, 12:48
Chapter 10 2:54, 5:56, 15:30, 16:34

It's a microphone problem. I've tried moving it around, yelling, and even humming before I speak. In a moment of silence, it needs to turn its little wheel to start working again. If you think it's bad enough, I can postpone the project until I can afford a new one.

I haven't heard it all that often, and have tried to alter it when I do. As I said, you're the one who's listened to it in detail throughout.

Scratch that. I've figured out how to resolve the problem. If you let the recording run a little before speaking, it turns its own cogs. New microphone can wait without harming this project!

Great you figured it out - It reminds me of some phones that stop if there is silence and then cut off the beginning of the next word - frustrating. Thanks, Cheryls
