Good Afternoon,

I have uploaded the following file:

journaloffrancisasbury1_20_asbury_128kb.mp3

It passed the checker and came in a bit how at 91 db. I will continue to work on my volume control.

Chris
Thank you, Chris. 91 dB is actually just a tad high, above the 89 that we aim at. But it is within the acceptable volume range (86-92), so no need to worry about that.

Two things here: you've told me the file name, but not the actual location where I can find it. Assuming you've uploaded it to the correct folder, I should be able to locate it. However, the easiest way to do this next time is to right-click on the link that the uploader gives and choose "copy link location." (Or it may say "copy link address" or something similar. It depends on your browser.) Then you can come and paste it into a message here. If it turns blue, you've done it correctly.

The second thing I need is the duration of the recording in minutes and seconds.

Hello,

Both of those Items I now remember. I am such a rookie. If you would like I went back and lowered the volume a tab and now have another file at 89.4. I would be happy to upload that version if you would like and I will even copy the link.

Chris

Thank you, everyone. MW updated. Section 40 is now PL ok! :thumbs:

David, I look forward to hearing your section soon. I hope to be able to listen before I leave on vacation in about a week, but no guarantees. I will be busy preparing for my trip.

Chris, no need to feel badly. There is a learning curve for each new volunteer, and we were all new once. I was able to find your section in Tricia's uploader folder and I have entered it, along with its run time, in the MW. It is fine if you want to lower the volume, but there's no necessity for that. Like I said, you were already within the acceptable volume range. Don't feel like you need to hit the volume bullseye every time, as long as you hit somewhere near it. :wink: I will try to listen to your section this week as well, and if corrections are needed, I will let you know.

David, I had a little time today for your PL. I do have a few notes for you.

14:25 Missing sentence "I was comforted in meeting B. and B---, R. B---, T. C----; a solemn meeting." (p. 406)
18:53 We have a standard format for footnotes. Please preface the footnote by saying simply "Footnote:" Then read the footnote, then close with "End of footnote." (p. 408)
21:44 "for Kent in M---y." You've omitted the M---y here. (p. 410)

I wasn't following along with the text the entire time, but only partially. I did happen to notice these two omissions, though. I can't help but wonder whether you skipped these because you weren't sure how to handle the blanks? There are many names that are blanked out like this in this journal, and some that don't even have a first letter given. (Such as "Mr. ------," which I've been asking readers to read as "Mr. Blank.) Just say the letters that are there, if there are any given.

here are the updates, I hope they are alright. I have a hard time duplicating the same tone and cadence.

Ok, no problem, will get on re-editing those sections. Thanks for the explainations. :-)

Just for clarification,

14:25 should be read as ‘I was comforted in meeting B and B, R. B, T. C; a solemn meeting.”

...or read as ‘I was comforted in meeting B and B ‘blank’, R. B ‘blank’, T. C ‘blank’; a solemn meeting.”

21:44 Read as... ‘for Kent in M ‘blank’ y’ or as ‘for Kent in M, Y’

David

Thanks :-)

:D Thanks for checking. It wouldn't have really been a problem doing it the other way, but it sounds more cumbersome, I think.

Thank you, Greg, they are great! Matching the same tone is a frequent struggle for all of us. Sometimes "good enough" just has to be good enough! The only thing that keeps this from being perfect is that you changed the file name. Remember that when you upload corrections, you should use the same file name as you used the first time. That way, the new, corrected, file replaces the old one. However, no need this time to upload once again. I will leave a note for Tricia to fix the file name during cataloguing. :D

Whoops, David, I just noticed that the file name you used is also incorrect. You left out author name. The best way to get the correct file name every time is to copy/paste the format that's given in the first post and just insert the section number. In this case, you need: journaloffrancisasbury1_41_asbury_128kb.mp3

Thanks David. Very nice splicing job. The transitions are seamless. You missed the second note I made, though, the one about the footnote:

This is now at about 19:00.

Ok, 3rd time's a charm? ;-)

I believe all the sections have been properly re-edited, I proof-listened and I think it's all there.

Thanks, David, great job! PL ok now! Would you like to read any more for this project?

Honestly, this was my very first try at audio narration. My first thought was 'Pah, how hard could it be to read out loud?'. I was quickly humbled by the experience and found a new respect to all those on Librivox volunteering their time and energy to bring these authors of the past into audio. Thanks to you especially for ensuring that narrators stay 'true' to the author's work and all your feedback was much appreciated. The whole experience was challenging, but interesting. I'm going to bounce around and try out some other projects for a bit. Later, if there are still some sections of Asbury open, I may contribute again.

Enjoy your holiday,

David
