Hello Sonia,
Here is the file without the poem.
April
thank you April. Nicely cut out and this is totally PL ok now as well. And I see you managed to find a new home for your poem in the monthly collection :9:

this was also your last section in this project, but I'm surely be seeing you in the next :D

Sonia
Thank you Sonia and you can definately expect to see me in the next World's Story segment.

Sonia:

If I could have found any support anywhere for the pronunciation I used, I would've let it ride. As it is, I have to ask you to indulge me on this occasion. I'm sorry for the extra work.

The corrections occur at 11:46, 12:01, 12:23, 12:35, 15:38, 22:10, 22:17, 22:27, and 22:55. They have been uploaded.

I thoroughly enjoyed this project and look forward to the future volumes.

Many thanks,

Philip

thank you, Philip. All the corrections are excellently edited in. I wouldn't hear a difference in sound or volume. You are an expert editor :thumbs: I was rummaging through the whole text one more time and it seems indeed you caught them all.

PL ok, a second and final time now.

thank you, Kevin, what a cool story. I extremely enjoyed the answers of the gymnosophists in the final part of this chapter. 8-) I have never heard about them up to now, so that's one new thing learnt.

Textually, all is perfect, but there is a small technical issue regarding the footnotes, which I would like to have read standardized like I pointed out under Point 2 here: viewtopic.php?p=1445329#p1445329

it's a very easy correction though:

> at 2:54: could you please say it the following way: “Footnote – Two and a half miles – End of Footnote”. Maybe you could say it after “before his foot”, to give the sentence a bit more coherence

> at 4:16: same here, please say: “Footnote – About six feet, eight inches – End of Footnote

thank you :9: and I hope you have fun with the next section as well

Sonia

awww, Ava, I agree, this story is so beautiful. :9: And I especially love that it has a happy ending (I did not expect that, to be honest). Love conquers all, such a touching subject. And wonderfully narrated again. I could hear that the story really meant something to you. :D

Almost flawless, only found a small part missing:

> at 14:10: (p. 17) missing part of sentence: “she could not wear a finer robe than he"
I fixed this. I am pretty sure I read it first time around, must have left this part on the cutting floor... Maybe I should keep my raw recordings for a tad longer? :hmm:

Oh: new length is 28:55
Cheers,
Ava.

all right, Monika, here I am with the PL ok for both your sections. :9: It was fun hearing how often the "buddhist scriptures" were mentioned in this text :lol: excellent job, Monika :thumbs: thanks

For section 8 I give you an extension, no problem ! Don't rush.

haha well very often he was called Siddartha here. Great stories, nicely narrated. I especially liked the part where the first rider is trying to stay on top of that wild horse. You are conveying the action here splendidly. The story with the dead child was very sad :(

I have a few small notes to make here:

> at 3:41: (p. 32) "till there arose an unknown priest who said" -the last part of the sentence is so low in volume that I can barely hear it. I don't know what happened here. :hmm: Could you amplify it again, please ?

> at 19:45-19:50: this is before Story 5. The pause seems a bit long to me, maybe 1 or at most 2 seconds is enough between the stories

> at 20:12: (p. 42) "Bear not false witness" - I hear "fails" which makes the sentence a bit confusing

The rest is fine. Great job, Monika. Thank you so much. :)
