Section 31 PL notes
~12:08, 'the' cut short

Too bad, because everything else is sounding great!

Thanks!

I checked the text and it does indeed say:
"Adrian was now obliged to comprehend a case of matrimony."

However, I rerecorded the sentence to make it flow more smoothly. Here it is:

I’m sorry, I should’ve checked into text before posting! Half the time I do, but half the time I forget. :oops: It does sound clearer now and is PL OK.
But the duration you gave looks like quite a bit longer than the earlier one, so I specifically checked the length of the file. From what I see, the time didn’t change, but you’re welcome to check it out and correct me. :wink:

I’m sorry for not having been clear on that. I misunderstood the word ‘a’ for being a chopped off ‘the’ and didn’t look at the text to see which was supposed to be there. So the new recording has the same word ‘a’ but easier to understand which word it is. In other words the text is more clearly understood now than it had been.
I hope this makes sense! If not, feel free to PM me.

Thank you! I’ll see if I can get to this one yet today... But I think I’ll try to get caught up on several other projects first.

PL OK :clap:

Just a note: I noticed in the intro “Chapter [number] of The Ordeal of Richard Feverel” sometimes you do and sometimes you don’t include the word of. I don’t think it’s really a big deal, but for the next ones I’d include it if you aren’t already beyond that point.
