Thank you!

One question I did have is about footnotes. Is there a standard way to read them into the text?

In this project, you can leave them out.

If you find one extremely interesting, please read until the end of the sentence that has the footnote, then say "footnote", read the footnote text, then say "end footnote" and continue with the next sentence of the main text.

Clear as mud, I guess :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

Yes you may! Enjoy!

If you're unsure about the Japanese words in the text, there is a very brief pronunciation guide just above the Magic Window. And I'm here to answer any questions as well. :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

Hi,

I would like to take 16 IV Levitation If I may

I have been learning Japanese for some time so I should be able to cope with most Japanese words I may come across :)


This would be my first recording and I would like to appear as: Rich Burgess

I'm very glad you picked this project as your first one to contribute - section 16 is all yours, enjoy.

And for future reference, to keep all your claims at your fingertips, here is your personal librivox reader page:


Let me know if you have questions, have fun on here! :D

ok I have uploaded Section_16

https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/shadowings_16_hearn_128kb.mp3

In listening and editing I have noticed I am very "breathy" between sections if you need me to re record due to that let me know.

Also I think the link was meant to be https://librivox.org/reader/11519 found it with a search.

thanks :)

Thanks for your file! Could you give me the length of it as well please?
Breathing is usually not a problem - unless you sound like an asthmatic person after a marathon - it distiguishes us from robots :wink:

Yes, sorry about the link; too many windows open...
Cheers,
Ava.

Thanks for the additional info.

I have entered you for 17 as well; if Chuck doesn't show up within the next few days (hey, no pressure :mrgreen: ) you can just start with it I guess.
Cheers,
Ava.

I haven't PL-ed the whole thing yet, but spot-checking the file... uh, yeah, I think you're good to go. Terrific recording. I'm jealous of your vocals. :-P
