Looks like we still have a couple chapters to go before this project is a wrap, so if no one else wants it, I'll do Chapter 12 Jeff.
TA,

I’ve got you down for Chapter 12 Part 1.

Thanks!

Haha, let me first finish chapter 8 ;) By then I should have a better grasp of how busy I'm going to be. I'm looking for a new flat, so by that time I might be in the middle of moving...
But if it's still open by then, I'll gladly take another one. This is a really fun book!
Foon - Please correct my pronunciation!

Here's chapter 7: https://librivox.org/uploads/alg1001/altruria_07_howells_128kb.mp3 (duration 46:02)

Matt
Matt,

Thanks again for another great recording! I found two misreads in Chapter 7. At 28:04, and again at 28:23, you misread "cottagers" and "cottages." Please make the two corrections, and the section will then be PL OK.

Thanks,

Jeff B.

Thanks for the feedback, Jeff!

I was actually trying to say "cottagers" with a softer 'r' to go with Reuben's accent, but I guess the 'r's were too soft. Hopefully, this should be better:

Here's Chapter 12 Part 1 Jeff. I'm later than I wanted to be, but for some reason, this section really gave me a hard time. Anyway, I am not thrilled with it and would be willing to start from scratch with the new equipment if you think this isn't up to snuff. At this point, I'd rather start over than go through what I've gone through thus far with it. As always your feedback is desired and valuable! Looking forward to your review. Oh, I actually remembered to put the file length this time. Don't hesitate to give me a virtual smack when I forget stuff like that man :). Thanks again for your contributions!

T.A.,

I thought the quality of your recording was fine, and you did a great job of reading! Your audio quality will definitely improve over the course of your LibriVox career as your gear improves and you begin to dial in the best settings. It's definitely not worth re-recording, as the quality of your recording is more than good enough for LibriVox, and the section is almost PL OK. The corrections I'm giving you are as follows:

1) Since Chapter 12 is divided into parts 1 and 2, I need you to introduce and end the section by saying "Chapter 12 Part 1 of A Traveler from Altruria…." and, "End of Chapter 12 Part 1."

2) There is some kind of beeping noise at the end of the recording, just before you say "End of Chapter 12." Please make sure this gets deleted when you make the above correction.

3) Last but not least, please ensure that you have 5 seconds of silence at the end of the recording. There was quite a bit of noise at the end, and the pause only lasted for about two seconds.

Once you've made the above corrections, I will take a look at the wave and maybe do some minor editing and remastering in order to make the track sound more uniform, which should improve the overall quality bit.

Thank you for your continued support!!

Jeff B.
