Hi Roma, everything is good, except for one small thing:

You have about 0.3 seconds of silence at the beginning, while we need 0.5-1 seconds.

I'll mark it See PL Notes. Thanks!

Hi Shriya, this is a persistent misunderstanding here at librivox. The rule is that there shouldn't be too much silence at the beginning of a recording but there is no minimum, and the max is also not the hardest rule around. Theres really no reason to be counting milliseconds. A heartbeat length is fine, and some less is also fine. Please dont take this particular rule too seriously :)

Thank you :)

If ever you get called ouf on it again in another project refer the bc to your admin. We dont require the dpl to look at recordings in audacity, much less count milliseconds :P
