Hi Dread -

Your recording has a lot of noise in the background and it sounds like you are speaking at the end of a long hallway which makes it hard sometimes to understand what you are saying. You need to move your mic closer to your mouth when you are recording. Are you using a headset mic? This recording almost sounds like what happens to me when I forgot to set in Audacity to record using my headset mic and instead the recording is done by my laptop mic which picks up a lot more ambient noise in the environment. Can you please try reducing the Noise and then re-submitting it to me please? I tried the Noise Reduction in Audacity and using the options of 12, 6.0, 6 and reduce it cleaned up nicely.

In addition, there are two underscores (_) in the file name between the 02 and broun. Please remove one of them when you are exporting the file again.

As for the actual reading - I just have one comment -

6:34 - I heard field - should be feeling

Here is Section 2.

New time of 21.04

Re background noise: Headset mic? No. Laptop mic? No. Freestanding.
Changed reduction to 12, 6.0, 6 with no improvement.
If noise reduction is inadequate, you will have to reject this and await another reader.

Dread - can you please post the link too so that we can listen to it?

We do not have access to the file server.

Many thanks! :D

Lynda:

The link in the MW automatically updated when dread re-posted his corrections (his original file was renamed).

I went ahead and spot PL'd it, and it is PL-OK! Dread, I don't understand exactly what changes you made (I'm not an audio engineer) but whatever they were it worked. And the correction at 6:34 was seamless! Well done!

Many thanks,

Philip

Phillip -

I did not know that! After all this time and my 1000+ recordings I have been posting the new link which I know is the same as the original link and I did not need to? Why did someone not tell me :) You are so right!

Thanks for Spot PL'ing that for me - I really appreciate it!

Lynda:

It is still always a good idea to post a link to your new recording even though the old one is "automatically" updated. The DPL then doesn't have to go back to the first page of the project to get the new link.

There have been a few times when I've forgotten to do that and on those occasions, the DPL will look at the link in the MW. Sometimes, glitches occur which can be avoided if you have posted the new link. It's a good backup however.

Many thanks,

Philip

Hi Lazlo -

Here is the PL feedback for Chapter 13 - really good read of the Chapter - just a few details that need to be fixed please -

3:33 – missing “first”
6:42 – "And the praise", clear throat… repeat
6:58 – heard "proprietary" – should be prep-A-ratory

Chapter 23 is available again for listening.

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/ourarmyatthefront_23_broun_128Kb.mp3


14:36 min, 13.3 MB

The following repairs have been completed:

.05 to 1 second silence at beginning
1:03 – Mumble in middle of this sentence – s/b In this spirit, it is true, that the great tide in the allied fortunes
2:45 – said year – s/b war
4:53 – missing enough
8:16 – missing pretty
13:07 – Start of sentence cut off – please re-record And yet the importance



Thanks for the comments, I've recently switched to a UTC mic and this helps me get the settings correct.

Chapter 17 is yours! Enjoy!

(Have I missed a link to Chapter 22 which is also assigned to you? I'm not attempting to nag, just trying to figure out if I've overlooked something).

Many thanks,
