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.
That's OK, not really worth worrying about. :) If there will be some corrections to do in the file, please upload the new version with the correct number, but if all will be well - just don't bother, I'll fix it.
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

Thank you!
I've updated the MW, except that we need the file lengths, please.

Hey Dustin,

Good narration and its word perfect as well. Well done. :thumbs:

But I do have minor PL Notes:
  • Please change the bit rate to be 128 kbps. I guess you can fix this through exporting. When you export the audio, you will find Format Options > Quality > 128 kbps. Here's a video (https://youtu.be/74o8aqnGFu8), done by Phil.
Have a great day! :D
Constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks, SaraHale. :D

Hey Alison,
Good Narration. Well done. :thumbs: But I do have minor PL Notes.

PL Notes for Section 10:
  • Please change stereo to mono. Here's a tutorial (https://youtu.be/ZJ-Nq-os2YI) done by Phil. If you have the newest version of Audacity. You'll find it under Tracks > Mix > Mix Stereo down to Mono.
  • Missed "Culinary Herbs: Their Cultivation, Harvesting, Curing and Uses, by Maurice Grenville Kains." Please add it after @00m:15.500s and before @00m:17.000s.
Optional
  • @01:07.151s - membranous-edged. I hear it membranous- shaped.
  • @02:06.772s - the leaves may be cut. I heart it the seeds may be cut.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

PL Notes for section 11:
  • Please change stereo to mono.
  • Please also amplify the recording by 7.9 dB. Its volume is 81.6 dB.
  • Missed "Culinary Herbs: Their Cultivation, Harvesting, Curing and Uses, by Maurice Grenville Kains." Please add it after @00m:14.655s and before @00m:15.681s.
Have a great day! :D

Optional
  • @00m42.409s - Matthew xxiii, 23. Missed 23.
I'll change this to a necessary correction. It should be read as Matthew 23:23 (That is chapter and verse. It is confusing because the usual current convention is to separate them by a colon instead of a comma).

But the other corrections need to be done, esp. the volume and exporting as mono.

Very nice reading! :D

Here is my revised chapter. I'm glad you brought some of those mistakes to my attention, I can't tell you how much I've learned since I've been apart of LibriVox. Thank you!

You're most welcome, Dustin. Phil has created lots of Audacity tutorials that are very helpful. Even Devorah does Audacity tutorials every once in a while. I really like Punch and Roll feature in Audacity. Here's a tutorial for you (If you are interested) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/396441804


Note For Larry:
I found the file's link isn't updated in the MW. Is it okay for me to update it?

Hey Mel,

Good Narration! And most of your sections are PL OK. :clap:

I have a minor PL Note in Section 14.

You have missed saying these lines
The seeds are rather large, oblong, slightly curved, and a ridged and streaked grayish-brown. They retain their vitality for about eight years.
Could you please add them after @02:51.497 and before @02:52.000?

Thanks and have an AWESOME day. :thumbs:
