Thanks Tom, another nice reading.

Just one little thing, the ending silence is only about 1 second. Could you bump that up to 5 seconds and upload again please.

Thanks,

Hi Alexandra!

Thanks for these.

Overall, these were wonderfully read and I very much enjoyed listening to them. You have a nice feel for them, they were word perfect, your beginning and ending silences were spot on and your sound is good with no background noise.

When you post your links to file uploads here, please also include the recording length for each as we need that for the Magic Window and so the DPL knows how much time to set aside for listening to them. In addition, please watch your file name as two of these have an extra “mp3“ in the file name.

The only thing I would comment on for all three is the volume levels which is an easy fix in Audacity. No need to record them again, just adjust the volumes.

Section 29: The volume is slightly low at 85 dbs. If you could amplify this by +3 and then re-upload please.

Section 30: The volume on this is very high at 99 dbs. If you could deamplify this by - 10 and then re-upload please.

Section 31: The volume on this is very high at 98 dbs. If you could deamplify this by - 9 and then re-upload please.

I look forward to hearing more from you!

Thanks,

Nemo

Recording time: 2:41 min.

and I'd take the next 4, since they are very short:

51 Married
52 Motherhood
53 Sufficiency
54 Ophelia
