Hello. Attached is my completed section - length 12:06. I'm afraid that there is a shift in noise/recording levels about 2/3 of the way through which I am sure is not ideal. I have tried at least 5 times to overcome it (as you may remember there was a section missing from the xeroxes so you sent the last bit to me as I was mid-project) but my Audacity skills are just not strong enough to help me find the perfect solution. I hope that this is ok:)

Thank you! Nice job! :-)

There are a couple of minor things that need to be corrected. This is actually section 45, but you said Section 46 in the intro and outro, and also named the file as such.

Also, at the very end you included "End of G.K. Chesterton's Newspaper Columns: The New Witness - 1922, by G. K. Chesterton." This part of the outro only goes on the last section of the project. :-)

If you could fix those instances, and reupload, that would be great!

Hi,

Welcome to LibriVox! Section 24 is all yours! Please read the first post of this thread carefully.

Please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. It can be your real name, forum name, or a pseudonym ~ whatever you prefer.

Also, since this is your first recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.

Thanks, and have fun!
