Thanks :)

Thank you! :thumbs:

One little thing, how long is the recording (mm.ss)? Please remember to always post the duration of the recording along with the link so that I can fill in the magic window. Thank you!

Roger,
I found a couple things

#1
At 1:29
I heard: "...one only has to ask the beggar one sees about the bronze boar..."
The text: "...one only has to ask the first beggar one sees about the bronze boar..."
This makes the sentence confusing.

#2
at 18:09
Missing text: "Might I stay and see the Signor Paint? said the boy"

If you can fix those you'll be all set.

Thanks :)
Section 34 - "The Story of a Mother" - has one and only one problem; you didn't leave 5 (but no more than 10) seconds of silence at the end. I read in one of the forum posts somewhere here the reason LibriVox has this persnickety rule is there are some MP3 players that don't play the last couple seconds of a file. If you can take your file, add about 3 seconds of silence to the end, and upload it again your section will pass easily. (If you have any trouble with this, not that I expect you to, send me a private message or post in the forum and we'll work it out.)

What a sad story - Hans Christian Andersen sure knew how to write them that way!

Hi Carolin/Rich,
Something odd is going on here. I have uploaded my corrected version twice but the recording with the mistakes seems to be staying in place!
Please advise.

Hi I'd love to take on "The Swineherd" story.

If you could list me as Michelle Furlong that would be wonderful thanks!

The file I downloaded is different from the previous one. Maybe what you see when you try to check what you've just uploaded is in your computer's cache. I'll be listening to the new section 38 asap, then I'll get along to section 22.

Thank you for my PL notes! I'm not sure how to fix one of the problems, however. I skipped a paragraph in my recording, and I'm not sure how to go about editing it back in without deleting the rest of it.

hi skyler, thats very simple. just open a new file in audacity and record the paragraph. then edit it just as your completed recording, including noiceleaning etc. then copy-paste it into your existing story. it helps to listen to the section of your recording into which you want to paste it and to mimic the tone of voice you used so that it blends in properly. have a look at this wiki page: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Editing_Audio and possibly some others that might be helpful :)

Roger,
Yes, the version you uploaded is the correct one, with the fixes. It's all good.
