I did removed the correction and recorded again the duplicate. The second line: actually is "grave", not "gay" -my pronunciation was faulty there. :oops: Thank you.
12:33 - 12:47 I still hear the phrase with stumble and then repeated.
12:57 – 13:02 likewise

My pleasure. I'm sorry I don't have more blocks of time to do more.

Almost there, but the repeat, "the green knows how to be gay - the green knows how to be grave" is still there at 12:50 - 12:54.

Okay, I must admit to being a touch confounded here.
This is the text, pg. 164, : Oh, yes, the Green knows how to be gay ; but the Green knows how to be grave. "
That is what I hear when I listen to my audio.
Do you not hear the same?

Section 17 submitted. Note: recording was 85+db so I normalized, which increased to 90.1. Still learning audacity -- if there was a way to only slightly increase, I am not aware yet but would be happy to tweek, if desired.

Section 17 The Sieve
Duration 17.20.20

Yay, thank you, Becky! :clap:

90 dB is just fine. Almost ideal, in fact. Although 89 is the ideal, anything between 86 and 92 is great! I'll also do a slight volume adjustment to all files that need them in the final step before cataloguing. :thumbs:

As soon as Larry is able to PL this recording, we can get this book to the catalogue, if all is well. I can already confirm that the tech is all good here, including volume. :wink:

My, this was certainly was worth waiting for!
I hope we'll hear much more of your expressive reading here on LibriVox.

The only minor thing is that the ending silence is a bit long at 6 seconds, and we like closer to 5.

happy to mark this PL OK and bring this book to a close, and release it to the listening public. :clap:
Thanks to the superb cast of dedicated readers. :clap:

I'm not worried about an extra second at the end. I'll go ahead and send it over to archive. Thanks, everyone! :D :thumbs:

Thank you Silverquill and MightyFelix -- I realized after I had submitted that I had forgotten to check my seconds of silence on both ends! Thanks for forgiving the over-run!
Looking forward to listening to the entire book.
