I specifically make sure I counted 6 secs after I finished the reading so not sure why you are only getting 3 secs. Can you share any tips on how I can ensure there is at least 5 secs of silence at the end? Still new so appreciate feedback...thank you..

Hello,
Section 98 - The Lost heart is ready for PL notes
https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/boysandgirls_098_foley_128kb.mp3

I hope I did it right this time at the end of the recording...do provide tips on how I can get to be more accurate with the 5 mins silence.

Thanks.

Very nice!
I'm happy to mark this one PL OK.

Here is my tip.
When I finish recording, I remain very quiet and let the recording run 8 to 10 seconds. Then when I finish editing, I just count off five seconds from the end and trim it. If you look at this recording in Audacity, it ends right at 3:28 so just put your cursor at 3:33, highlight from there to the end and cut. That gives you the 5 seconds and a file length of which you should post along with the link.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your recordings for this volume. They are quite nice. :)
I hope we will hear more of your voice here on LibriVox.

Just to confirm we are all good for section 024 which you said you fixed it so I assume there is no need for me to re-send you a file on it.

thanks.

Correct.
You are all set, and you should see your recordings marked PL OK in the Magic Window.

Thanks again!

Just one issue -- these were uploaded to the wrong MC. Should be maryannspiegel instead of philchenevert

I think MaryAnn can retrieve it, but might be easier just to upload it again.
Not like I haven't done this before. :lol:
