Hi Sorry for the late reply. I recorded a test reading but I can't figure out how and where should I upload it. I received your message and it's ok if you give the part to others :thumbs:

Chapter 9 - PL OK! :thumbs:

Chapter 10 - please trim the beginning to no more than 1 second, it almost 1.5 seconds currently (other than that - both a perfect reading, loved your voices for the animals!!).

Such great readings! :D

I believe I have fixed what needed to be done. If it needs anything else just let me know.
Thanks, Jill
Hi Jngraber, I am still hearing the same issues, loud background noise hum and Present instead of Pleasant. Did you by chance upload your old file instead of the new?

I rerecorded with a different computer since I couldn't get rid of the back ground noise. I also already did one round of noise reduction. I don't hear anything on this recording. I'm using my iphone earbuds to listen. If I should be using some other type of earbuds or head phones just let me know.
Thanks, Jill

In general, earbuds are not recommended although they're better than nothing. Over the ear headphones are better... but obviously more expensive, so you do what you have to do :wink:

Chapter 11:

Please trim end silence to 5 seconds, there is currently 6.5 seconds.

Very nice reading Jyothi! :thumbs: I would like to give you a little advice on future recordings. The first is be careful on some plosives on words beginning with the letter "w", it wasn't on all of them, but you may have been a little too close to the microphone. One thing you can do is move the mic outside the stream of breath, either above, below or beside it. The other is there is some very low background noise, but it sounds like it might be horn beeping in traffic or a loud bird?? I'm not complete sure. It's sort of a high pitched noise. Try to make sure that your recording area is as silent as possible.
