Okay, good.
I see you have some technical issues to work out,
So, let me know when you have the test approved, and also how you want to be listed in the LV Catalog -- real name, pseudonym or other nickname.

It's perfect! No need to re-record anything! Instead, use that time and energy to record something new! I would love your recordings, you have such a refreshing voice! :9:

Hi Skip! You have a soothing, lovely voice, pleasant to listen to. :9:
Do you remove all pauses/breaths from your recordings? The ending 5 second silence is also missing.

Hello,

Thank you for that encouragement. When I started Librivox, I was told to slow down when reading because I spoke too fast lol!
I have added the 5 seconds to the end of recording:

Your reading pace is great, and your voice has a soothing quality, very smooth.
But sometimes I would expect a longer pause or taking a breath, that's why I wondered if you somehow truncated or cut the silences between sentences.

Section 07 is now PL OK! :thumbs:
