yes I changed your reader name, ok like this ? https://librivox.org/reader/15569
and wow !
a powerfully uncanny story to start this issue. I had goosebumps all throughout the narrative, especially starting after the woman heard "Mamma". It reminded me too much of the setting of the "Shining". And then the ending with the Avenger didn't lift the mystery at all. Who were these people and what did they do ? Maybe the unsettling power is rooted in the mystery that is never really explained.
Excellent reading, you really did very well and I enjoyed listening to it
I do have a few notes to correct, but it's mainly a few stumbles and repeats that can get cut to make it cleaner. Since you are a new volunteer I will advise you: do NOT re-record
it all from scratch ! Only spot correct the parts I point out. It's too much work to re-record such a lengthy section and it's also too much work to re-listen to it all as DPL
so editing is really encouraged on the forum, rather than re-recordings.
If you need help on how to efficiently edit, please don't hesitate to ask. But basically if you zoom in
, you can cut out the stumbles easily. And if you have to re-record one sentence, it's easy to paste it into the correct slot.
So here is what needs doing:
> at 1:32
: (p. 1) stumble and repeat: "exchanged commodities with one
> at 2:02-2:04
: (p. 2) between "from the south" and "in a concord coach" – the pause is a bit long
, seeing it's the same sentence
> at 4:33
: (p. 3) "in appeas
ment of their wonderful appetites" – you say "appoint
ment". Also the pause here could be trimmed
at bit as well
> at 5:37
: (p. 3) stumble and repeat: "and devoured
> at 9:18
: (p. 5) stumble and repeat: "all night
> at 10:25
: (p. 5) stumble and repeat: "when a little
> at 15:10
: (p. 7) stumble and repeat: "so that the light
fell upon his face"
> at 21:00
: at the end we should leave a standard of 5 seconds
of silence, you have over 7 here, could you cut two seconds please ?
Simply keep the exact same filename
as the first recording when you reupload. The old file will be replaced by the new one then.
Oh and can you please always mention the length of a file
when you post the link, so we can update the Magic Window accordingly ?
Thanks, great first job
Hope to hear more from you again.
