Sorry about that. It is alg1001.

I didn't know Dumas wrote true crime stories! This looks fascinating.

I'd like to claim section 7-- Chapter 2 Part 1.

Thank you for your test. Some edits needed please

1. The volume needs increasing to within the acceptable level of 89 - 92 dB it is currently lower than this
There's a small program the spouse of a LibriVoxer developed to check the tech settings. You can download it and use it to check the volume and other settings. It's here: http://cgjennings.ca/checker/index.html

Use the latest version, which I believe is 0.96. The volume information is in the Information tab. We aim for 89 dB, but anything between about 87 and 91 is good.
You can also check you volume in audacity if you do the following
TriciaG wrote:Someone made a plugin for Audacity that will tell you how much to amplify your recordings to get close to 89 dB right in Audacity.
- Click THIS LINK and save the file to your computer - your desktop or somewhere.
- Then go to the folder in which Audacity is installed (on my computer, it's in C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity) and open the Plug-Ins folder.
- Drag the file you saved into the Plug-Ins folder.
- The next time you start up Audacity, you can highlight your recording, then go to Analyze / ReplayGain, and it'll tell you how much to amplify your file.
Just for future reference when you name your files it should always be in lower case letters.

If you could carry out this edit and reupload using the same filename but all in lower case then I can check it for you and you should then be good to go and record sections.
Thanks

I have now edited this project and there are some extra sections in the MW which can now be deleted.

Hi again, Michele. I am exchanging some messages with a friend who also records for Librivox to see if he can help me to turn the volume up, as I have not managed to do it myself yet. Sorry about the delay.

I just want to let you know that I've been without Internet for 2 weeks but have now resumed my 'usual' activities. I was recording this afternoon but will do it again in the evening, as I am unhappy with the result. Sorry to keep you waiting.

Hi, Michele.

Finally got to record 'to my liking'

https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/celebratedcrimesvol4part3_01_dumas_128kb.mp3 18min36sec

If you don't already have someone to proof-listen, please let me know, as I may have someone (a lot more experienced than me).

Thank you.

Nadja :)
