Thanks for the feedback! Here's the edited version of Section 16:

https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/etiquettemadeeasy_16_squier_128kb.mp3
Length: 1:09

I do use Checker for all of my recordings, but I don't know where to find the background noise value. I ran a few more passes of noise reduction on this version at the very least, so hopefully that helps. I'm also unclear regarding your volume note, as 91.1 seems to be in the acceptable range, both according to Checker and your notes. Regardless, this new version comes in at 90.4.

I'm going to go out on a limb and bet you'll have similar notes for my other two sections. If this re-edit of #16 is acceptable, I'll be sure to edit the other two accordingly.

EDIT - Had one of those youthful senior moments and just now realized that you did also give feedback on #13. I'll work on those edits right away.
MW updated.
Kevin,
Thank you for posting that the mw is updated.

Thank you!!
I am sorry for not having paid closer attention to the file names it, looks as if they all are missing the word squier. It should go like this :etiquettemadeeasy_##_squier_128kb.mp3 with the section number replacing the # signs. Please repost once those sections are renamed and thank you again.

April, should I be checking the files name as I update the MW? (Honestly, I never noticed the discrepancies.) Easy for our reader to correct, though.

Hey Kevin,
I do have a tendency to pay closer attention once the files to pl are on my computer and one is not in line correctly. Learning, learning, learning...always.

SECTION 16
Hello, personal note here for you:
Your reading quite nicely though the cadence is interrupted by your "in-drawn breaths".
I also notice that your recording does not seem to "show" the in-drawn breaths before every sentence begins only scattered to certain areas.
-Open your audio with the "audacity" program to see just what I am referring to, please? I presume that is how you record your audio though seeing it after you record can be quite helpful too.
It is a wonderful program so the recorder "sees" their audio . For me it does work best to "enlarge" the audio with the + sign towards the bottom of that page, by clicking on that, differs by person I am sure. I click it 3 times.
Section 16 audio is as follows:
27.50 show a flat line which is no sound and is wonderful to see while 47.50 shows a large nodule and that signifies sound. For myself I attempt to use the audacity program to get a flat line after I record in most places where I am not speaking.
Yes, there are a few nodules throughout your recording though not all are as loud as others. Breathing is good so please do continue with that & do not think I am asking that you do not breathe as I am not.
-@47:50 delete in-drawn breath
-@54:50 delete in-drawn breath
-@1:00 replace the in-drawn breath with silence.


The checker program is also helpful for the reader as it will show the volume & background sound levels. Do you know how to use that one & do you use it?
It shows that for section 16 the volume is at 91.1 with the background sound being at 45.9.

It has been mentioned to me that the ideal volume is from 86-92 with the preferred average being 89.0
Background sound is ideal at 24.2 though can probably go up or down by a couple of numbers, that I am not positive of though the MC can see this post and is welcome to interject anything into it so possibly we will know a more definitive number.
Due to the background sound being a high number, I ask you to run background checker a couple of more times after the edits.

Please make the edits and re-post with the new time as well.
Thanks for the feedback! Here's the edited version of Section 16:

You must have indeed seen what I was mentioning in your audio with the non flat line as you happened to be spot on with ALL the edits and are now standing with a pl okay on section 16 well done!

Section 13 is well done in the same respect just one area @1:07 that does have a sound that you should please remove. It sounds like a "fffttt" sound. Please do make it disappear and that will also be marked pl okay.

Please also know that too many noise cleanings may distort the sound quality, do ensure that you noise clean with that in mind.
There is a way to get the volume at the preferred level most times. I do not know just how to do that though. One trick I do not have, yet.

You have mentioned you do use checker and can see the volume with it. The background sound is 3 lines below the volume in the checker once you have your audio file in there.

Please do keep in mind that recording can seem to some to be a long and arduous process with many, many steps. You are doing remarkably well in my mind so an enormous thank you for remaining so diligent. I am finished here for the day & I do hope the rest of your day goes well.



The volume borders on needed a deamplification. It is the acceptable range it was just a mention nothing more.
