Do you still need a DPL? If so, I’d be interested. :)
I've added you to the magic window so you can update pl status now.

Please pencil me down for sections 15, 16 and 17 for now. I'll take all that won't be claimed by the time I upload 17

Thanks,

Section 4 is uploaded! I wasn't quite quick enough to get it done before you got to Section 5 - you'll have to listen to them out of order now! ;)

One PL note on Section 9:

48:15 I heard “enemies” and the text says “armies”

Otherwise all good as always :)

Section 1 has a few PL notes:

7:30 stumble

19:54 stumble

Also, can you cut down the silence at the beginning of the recording so it's one second or less before you start speaking?
I cut down the silence, and corrected the stumble at 19:54.

I didn't hear quite such a slip-up at 7:30, but I did cut down some of the pauses in that region to be more fluid. If I missed a different stumble there, feel free to let me know just where.

Thank you for looking (read: hearing) it over, Elsie!

P.S. - I apologize, again, for my slow progress - I'm moving into a new house, and it has required much more attention than I originally thought! It could be a couple of days before I get section 2 completed, hopefully that's okay.
