Hi kivaun, thanks for the story. I cant find a year on the text. Where did you confirm that the text is from 1923 or older? Thank you!
I just checked online and found that A School Story was first published in 1911 in More Ghost Stories of an Antiquary.

It appears to have been published in a collection titled Can Such Things Be? in 1893. :D

Thank you :thumbs:

May i request that you use text sources that state the publishing year, or gutenberg.org? Like this one http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4366

We trust gutenberg to have done their homework when it comes to public domain, though they have some (very few) non pd works in their catalog (This is stated right at the start of the text in these cases). Also archive.org is a great resource because the scanned pages will generally state the year. Thank you!

Hello,

I'd like to take a chapter. Here is the information and recording for review :) I've been recovering from a cough and am worried it's a little breathy, but couldn't figure out how to adjust that without losing the overall sound. Please let me know if you feel adjustments are needed and have any suggestions!

Link to the text source: https://web.archive.org/web/20130508182156/http://www.classichorrorstories.com/texts/poe/telltale.txt
Author name: Edgar Allan Poe
Title of the story: The Tell-Tale Heart
Duration (runtime) of the file: 14:26
Recorded by: Z. Z. Turner
Recording: https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/ghohor033_thetelltaleheart_edgarallanpoe_zzt_128kb.mp3

Thank you,

Your breathing doesn't bother me - it sounds natural. To lower its volume I would recommend to increase the distance to the micro and not to speak directly into the micro. Or helpful maybe is a pop shield.

The overall volume of your file is too low - +4,5 db would be perfect! But attention: At the end of your reading you're voice is getting louder. You can equal the complete file by compressing it. If you use Audacity you can do this with standard adjustments: just compressing and after that increase (or lower) the volume up to 89 db. Then you reach the finish line with a perfect file and a perfect reading :) :thumbs:

Overall volume is 2.3 db above the ideal line of 89 db and +/- 2 db are accepted - so I don't know exactly if I should remind a runaway of 0.3 db

If I shall tolerate this then PL is OK :mrgreen: and I don't nag about the volume anymore :oops:
