If there are any tracks left, I'd like to claim them
The only tracks left are the one that need to be fixed. I have heard back from one reader, the others I will probably assume have vanished. I will fix them, if I can. If they are that bad, I will let you know if I need a replacement. Thank you!

BTW, I am thinking about posting the next book in this series soon. Keep watch!

I have been able to fix three of the four chapters needing fixes.

Chapter 23 has been de-amplified by 4 dB, now is PL OK!

Chapter 27 and 28 were both amplified and compressed to get the volume up to the range we are looking for, they are now PL OK!

Section 26 needs a few fixes.

The volume is way too high. We need the volume to be around 89 dB, with a range of 87-92 dB. The volume of this section is currently 96.8. I am also hearing a lot of clipping, which is that static sound that you can hear in some of the louder spots. That static is where the peaks went beyond the recording window, and any sounds outside the window will not be included in your recording. I think the clipping isn't too bad, it may not be too bad when you reduce the volume, which needs to be reduced by 7 dB to get it were it needs to be.

Checker is also saying that your background noise is too high, at 51 dB. I am not hearing it, and it could be reduced once you reduce the volume. So, I recommend you just reduce your volume first, then we can check the background noise and decide if it needs to be taken care of.
Sorry I just saw this. I'll work on figuring out how to reduce the volume. I'll let you know if I need help:) Joan
No problem! Thank you for letting me know!
Good evening, here is a new and improved file. (I hope) I checked it with checker and it said I passed:) I see I'm the last holdout, so I hope this helps to finish things up for you. Joan

It does help to finish things up, and this one passes Checker for me too! So, chapter 26 is PL OK, and we are off to the catalog! Thank you so much!
