Sorry for the delay on PLing! I've been sick for the past week or so and I haven't been able to do hardly anything!

Sections 09 and 16 PL OK! :thumbs:

Section 07 PL Notes:
º 00:51 - I hear "though you dreaded its impossible subtleties" instead of "though you dreaded its possible subtleties"

Checker: All passed ✓

Welcome!

I see there were some technical issues with your one-minute test recording.
So, please correct those and get a final "OK" on that test before recording anything for this project.
Nonetheless, I've added you to the LibriVox catalog and and assigned you to Section 27 so it will be ready when you are.

Let me know if you have any questions along the way.

Didn't you read the feedback that you were given?
It's important to follow-up.

Here is the quote, but you should check it out for yourself and respond:

"There are just a few requirements that haven't been met.
Firstly, the volume is a little high at 93 dB (target range is: 86-92 db). You can fix this by using an audio editor and an amplify effect on the track (using a negative value of course).
Secondly, the track should be mono, not stereo. You can mix down a stereo track into mono using an audio editor.
Thirdly, the bit rate needs to be 128 kbps with a constant bit mode. Again, this can be done in the export settings of an audio editor.

Can you fix those issues then reupload the file and post it here? It will then be checked again to see if it passes all of the requirements.
If you need any help, let us know : ):

Well, sorry to say this is NOT a perfect file.
We don't require or expect perfection, but it does have to meet minimum requirements.
I ran this through Checker and the volume is is still much too high. It measure 94.5 dB. Out target is 89 dB with a range of 86-91 dB
I noted several other issues and left the comments on the thread with your test.
So please read those, and try again.

I know this may seem complicated, but once you get these basic things mastered, you can concentrate on the actual reading. It does get better!

Heya! I would like to save these two sections if that's alright?

28 Music
29 Ethics

I'm a new reader and would like to be credited as Angel Rey! I feel I might be jumping the gun a little bit, but I think these two sections would be super interesting to read out!
