Thank you for your effort in recording these!
They are nicely read, and you handle the scientific name with alacrity.
There are, however, a few things that need to be corrected.
First, the volume on both of these is far too low, measuring only 78 dB. Our target is 89 dB with a range of 86-92 acceptable. If you are using Audacity, run the Amplify feature on the entire file and set it to +10.
Then there a couple of notes for the reading which are minor, but easy to correct.
1:12 slight stumble “gro- growing louder” (easy to cut out)
Also, the ending silence is only about one second. We need about 5 seconds.
There are special instructions for the Summary Chapter clearly marked in the Magic Window -- do not read the page numbers --
So, could you please clip these out?
2:45 loud snap (easy to cut out)
Upload your corrected files under the same file name and post the link here again with the new file lengths.
