Hey Stefan (Svonb002),

Excellent narration. Your voice is clear and your reading pace is great. :thumbs:

Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D

Just adding to the PL notes, and please see the PM (private message I sent).

-opening silences are okay
-okay to omit the abbreviation Linn.

-ending silences do need to be changed to about 5 seconds.
-must add the messing text in Section 12

You're doing a great job and I appreciate your contributions. :thumbs:

~Larry

To All readers:

I thought you might be interested in this note, In regard to the abbreviation, Linn.

Personally, I had never encountered this is these scientific Latin names. I had to look it up, and it stands for (Carl) Linnaeus
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Linnaeus) who developed this naming system, or taxonomy, which was incorporated into the early Gardner's Dictionary. The best choice would be to read it as "Linnaeus" but it is okay to read it as "Linn," or just to omit it. Any of these options are fine since I did not have the foresight to do the research and specify how to read the abbreviation at the beginning.

Hey Mel Atto,

I've enjoyed your narration. You have a pleasant and clear voice. :D As for pronunciation, they sounded correct to me. Personally, I use the following to check the pronunciation (since English is my second language) Howjsay, Google Translate, and Dictation (I use it to test my pronunciation :wink: ).

3. @2:22.5 - obligatory
Miss this paragraph:
Cultivation.—Balm is readily propagated by means of divisions, layers, cuttings, and by its seeds, which germinate fairly well even when four years old. Owing to its small size, the seed should be planted in a seedpan or flat in a greenhouse or hotbed, where all conditions can be controlled. The soil should be made very fine and friable, the thinly scattered seeds merely pressed upon the surface with a block or a brick, and water applied preferably through the bottom of the seedpan, which may be set in a shallow dish of water until the surface of the soil begins to appear moist.
Thank you for the input and the resource direction

How did I miss a whole paragraph?
I will fix this with the silence spacing

As for the last four readings I just uploaded

I responded to the private message I received
But
Basically
I misread the instructions
And
In my simple mind
Turned ~5 into ~.5 for the ending silence

I will fix this on all 6 of my readings

That's OK; there's a lot to learn and you'll be comfortable with all of this soon enough. :D
Thanks for your note.

Thank you!
Do please remember that we need two digits for the section number -04- I think Kristine can fix it on her end.

Sure. :) I will let it be for now until the PLer has had a chance to listen to it.
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

So sorry about that mistake. I'll make sure to remember that for next time. If for whatever reason it can't be fixed on another end, I can just re-post. Thank you.
