Chapter 3 PL notes
-0:21 take a listen here: I’m not sure if you use a “click” to mark edits while recording and can’t decide if this is a click or the final t in And’t.
-1:02 repeat – Held out her arms to receive the child
Thank you, Linny.
The 0:21 is my rendition of And't. No change made.
Fixed the repeat at 1:02.

Updated version for PL: https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/mildredandelsie_03_finley_128kb.mp3
3 is spot check PL OK!

Amy, new time is 18:08

Thank you, Linny for your help! It's greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure what the problem is with my speaker. I've tried fixing the recording. Let me know if it's better, or I can try again.

Chapter 7, edited.

It's a little better. I would say go ahead and mark it PL OK.

Did the video help at all? I know it's an old version of Audacity.

Chapter 7 PL notes
-10:29 repeat – I can fit it tonight, said Mildred.
-Please extend your ending silence to ~5 seconds.

The volume has a wide range. There were times when I hurt my ears until I turned down the volume. Have you considered compression followed by amplification? If you are interested, here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fKYYj6HMZU
Sorry about the incorrect timestamp. :oops: Thanks for finding it.

I would like to read chapters 11-13. I'm very excited about this as it will be my first recording. Plus, I am a huge fan of the Mildred series. :clap:

Kylie Goodfellow is fine. I submitted my 1 minute test earlier today and there were a couple of things that needed to be adjusted, which I have already fixed. I resubmitted the test and will let you know as soon as I get the final ok. Thank you so much! :D

Perfect!

I'd recommend waiting until you get your test okayed so that you don't have to re-record anything.

The chapters are yours!! Enjoy!
