Hi Rita,

I have listened to the story and it is PL OK. However, I don't think it is intended for children, and I'm going to have to send you over to the Short Story collection, or the nonfiction collection. The version of the book we have in the catalog isn't under the Children's category, and from reading about the book when it was originally published, it doesn't seem as it was written for children per se. Sorry!

That's ok - I understand

Maybe I'll try with a different story

If we've had our sound checked and OK'd in another section, do we need to do it again? Mine was in the Short Science Fiction group, submitted in the SSF069 COMPLETED thread.

Hi Shelly,

You only need to pass your 1 minute test once, so you are good to go! :thumbs:

That site does not provide text sources. We can not use it. Please find the story on Project Gutenberg.

Thank you ~ nice job! :-)

There is one issue. The bit rate is incorrect. It needs to be 128kbs and Constant. Yours is 101 and variable. Do you need help fixing this? Let me know if you do!

Thank you ~ it is PL OK!

Please remember to provide the run time of the files when you submit them. We need it for cataloging time.
