Hello

I think my section 7 is ready for prooflistening.

21:53

Thanks in advance for any constructive feedback.
Hi Eva! Great reading! :9: Just a few edits needed.

To follow the intro format required for this project, please change intro to:

"Section 7 of The Centaurians. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit librivox.org." [Optional: "Read by [your name]."] "The Centaurians, by Biagi. Chapter 7."

There is a short repetition of "Can’t afford accidents, he explained" at around 4:15 in the recording.

A short repetition of "“We won’t,” Saunders replied" at around 7:34

And while you're in there, shorten the beginning silence to 1 second and the ending silence to 5 seconds.

At the end, when you're ready to export, check the filename to be centaurians_07_biagi_128kb.mp3 (there was a typo in your filename for the author)

Very intriguing chapter! :D

Hi Eva, I overlooked the typo in your filename, thank @Rapunzelina for pointing it out. :D

It would be easiest for you to copy the filename from the opening post and then replace the section number each time. This time I can do it for you and you can copy and paste the following filename directly:

centaurians_07_biagi_128kb.mp3

Great! It is now ready for spot PL. :D

The new track length is 21:56, please remember to quote the new track length next time you reload a file for this or other project, so that your BC doesn’t have to download it again. ;)

Hi here is Chapter 04 for PL

https://librivox.org/up;oads/rapunzelina/centaurians_04_biagi_128kp.mp3

Excellent that you keep working despite the heat! :thumbs:

But checker is cruel: it says that your volume falls outside the target range (86-92 db), because yours is 79,2 dB. You can fix this very easily by using the amplifier of Audacity:

First select the whole track, then click Effect, then click Amplify…, then you can write for instance 10 in the field Amplification (dB), finally click OK and save

Have no checker on your computer yet? You can download it here:

https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker

It is a very useful tool. ;)

After you have increased the volume and passed it with checker, please upload the file again with the same name and let us briefly know, so that I can change the status to ready for PL. ;)

I wasn't able to download the file, and then I noticed it must be because there are a few typos in the link (up;oads for uploads, 128kp for 128kb). So I just wanted to suggest whenever you upload files, to copy the link from the uploader and paste it, rather than type it. Depending on your browser, a right-click of the mouse on the link should produce a menu where you can choose "Copy link" :?:
Thanks! :D

Alright, I managed to download and listen now, so here's a couple of suggestions:

One is to add the section title "Chapter 4" just before the main text, at about 0:26 in the recording,
and the other is to adjust the silences; cut it to 1 second at the beginning and prolong it to 5 seconds at the end. And then it will be completely PL OK :D

Great reading! I'm glad you're taking on another section :D
