Hi Gavin!

Welcome to LibriVox! You would just let me know which sections you would like to claim, and I will put that in for you, easy peasy! But, please make sure that you do your one minute test before you record for any project. It is just how we can make sure that your settings are where we need them to be. Let me know what you would like to claim, and the name you would like credited on your catalog page!

Are you wanting sections 20 and 21, or chapters 20 and 21, which would be sections 26, 27 and 28? Section 20 has already been recorded. Also, if you check out this link, https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording , you will find out what you need to do in order to record your one minute test and where to post it.

Hello! I would like to record sections 21-23. My one minute test has already been recorded and approved. If any of those sections are taken, I'll record the next available section.

Length: 35:33
For section 21, Chapter 17.

There is a change in the quality around 1/3 of the way through the recording, this is because my microphone unexpectedly switched from my earbud mic to my computer mic, and I didn't realize it until I listened to it again later. Is the quality still good enough to use, or do I have to re-record the whole chapter again?

I will let you know, usually it's not too bad, but I will listen. Thank you!

How about section 28, which is chapter 21? It would be a whole chapter, if that is OK?
