Greetings -

Vivianlyu, we have a bit of a problem with your reading.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps.
The sampling rate should be 44.1 kHz (44,100 Hz).

I am not sure if this can be fixed or if you will need to re-record it. I will leave it to the LibriVox gurus to decide and let you know what needs to be done.

Don't be discouraged. Many have done those very things in the past. :) :)

Don't re-record!

Changing your bit rate:

Fixing the sampling rate:

Once these are set, they should stay that way unless you change them (although sometimes technology gremlins seem to like playing tricks :roll: )

Greetings -

Welcome to LibriVox. Hope to hear many reading efforts from you.

It was fun to listen to you read this section as I could hear you getting more and more confident as you went along. The first one always seems to be the hardest.

Here are a couple of things that need your attention:

TIME: 00:18 The name of the author is pronounced fitz-hew.

TIME: 10:44 Delete everything after "Dallas, Texas". That closing is for the final chapter of the book.

Again, welcome to the interesting group of people that make up LibriVox.

Some notes on Chapter 17:

One that is easy to fix:

TIME: 01:56 TEXT: "Roy Blakeley is trying to jolly me,” Pee-wee boasted." Reading has "boasted" pronounced as "boosted".

One that is curious:

The recording ends at 07:41 but there are five more paragraphs in the chapter not in the recording. Did part of the recording get accidentally edited out?

Apologies for not getting to these sooner.

Let's see. Well read, good voice, good pace, no repetitions or stutters, no background noises. Definitely PL OK.

The MW now shows Chapters 30, 31, and 32 to be PL OK.

How does Pee-Wee manage to escape permanent infamy every time?

gerberock, thanks for four more good chapters to show us how Pee-Wee goes, at least in his own mind, from shame to fame. As always, definitely PL OK.

I need a little more time to get this done. I changed jobs and am out of town during the week. I will try to get the chapters done this weekend. If you do not have them by the 7th, please take me off the list for this book. Thanks
