This is just to apologize for not posting any of my claimed sections. I had problems with "finding" all of section 34, 22 pages in all for that one. Now I have located them and am in the editing process.
no worries, April, you still have time and this was the longest section of this book if I'm not mistaken :shock: But why did you have trouble finding the pages ? :hmm: I noted down the pages in the Notes-section in the MW. Were the pages wrong ?

@Kevin and Nemo: thank you for your sections, will PL this afternoon !

Sonia
No, no finding the pages as you had noted was perfect. Yes, it was a lengthy section so I chose to record it not ALL at one time. Therefore, I have 3 seperate sections. It is good now as I know where I put them on my computer.

Hello Kitty:
I have never worked with threads like this so I hope this is the right thing to do. I will now try to give you the URL for the section I was assigned in World Story:

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume8_tappan.mp3

See if you detect any background noise. I only heard it AFTER transmission; and I used noise removal for the whole file.

Thanks,

Hi Noelle and thank you for your section ! An excellent reading on the whole, it was very pleasant to listen to :9: Also you needn't worry about the many Norwegian names, I think you did a perfect job with them. :thumbs:

thank you, yes this is the way to post the link. Best also always to include the length of the section, so I know that all has uploaded correctly.

Concerning the filename though, you did not name it correctly. You always need to include the section number, otherwise all the files would be named the same way and each would overwrite the other in the end ;) your correct name would be: "worldstory_volume08_017_tappan_128kb". You always see an example for the correct naming in the very first post of each project. Simply copy/paste it and change the section number, then you can't go wrong.
See if you detect any background noise. I only heard it AFTER transmission; and I used noise removal for the whole file.
you might have done one round more of noisecleaning, but it was not too disturbing for my ears, so this is perfectly fine as well.

I have a few minor cuts to suggest though. Sometimes your pauses in between sentences seem a bit long. Anything over 2 seconds is long for a listener in my opinion, so it would be best to try to keep it at a maximum of 1.5 seconds.

No need to re-record anything, just do these few cuts and reupload with the correct filename this time.

> at 0:05-0:08: between "Denmark" and "Iceland" - shorten lengthy pause

> at 3:42-3:45: between "governing Sweden" and "Magnus must have been aware" - shorten lengthy pause

> at 6:01-6:03: between "his death wound" and "he lay here" - shorten lengthy pause

> at 9:05-9:07: between "on the German coast" and "in the spring" - shorten lengthy pause

> at 9:54-10:01: (p. 82) repeat "in return for this [...] returned to Norway" - this can be cut out, it's repeated later one at 10:01

> at the end, we usually request a standard of 5 seconds of silence. You have 4 here, which is ok too, but I only mention it, to make you aware of it and so it won't be even less next time ;)

thank you, wonderful job all in all, and these minor cuts are quickly repaired. Well done ! Thank you :)

Here is 90--it never occurred to me that it might be necessary to check a woman for a cloven hoof!:

ah, who knows what you would find if you ever checked :lol:

wow, this Greenlandish hymn was quite the tongue-twister :shock: I would be so curious to hear this sung by a native speaker.

Excellent job again, Jim, thank you so much. Interesting facts about the people in Greenland. They coffee-addiction was tremendous :!:

PL ok.

:shock: these lodgings look so messy and uncomfortable. Wouldn't have wanted to spend a day there :lol: but an interesting section nevertheless, and flawlessly read, Kevin, thank you so much.

One small optional note would be right at the beginning:

> at 1:30: "the editor" - you say here "this from the editor" (or something similar) this is not necessary, just read what is written in the book, no need to enhance the text in any way (just what I told you in the stage directions for Cynthia's revels) ;) but we can leave it like this for now, it doesn't change the meaning, so it's fine, unless you want to change it. Just wanted to point it out for future recordings. We need not do our own editing of any text.

I'll mark it PL ok.

Thank you

Sonia

This will be an easy edit. I will make the change later today after coffee!
