I hope I got this right. https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/littlecolonielschum_08_johnston_128kb.mp3
Just on the edge of what we accept. So it is PL OK! :-)

I would highly suggest to try getting the volume up at input/when you are recording so that you don't have to amplify it so much.

Thanks for sticking it out!

I was wondering if I can have my chapter removed? I didn’t do my best and I don’t want it to be just barely what you accept. I want to just keep practicing with sound to get it right in the sound volume instead of submitting something that is barely up to what you accept. I don’t want to bring the book quality down by having a bad chapter in there.

Do you want to redo the chapter? If not, I would prefer not to remove it. There is nothing wrong with it - you did a good job! I can work on the file and probably get the volume up some more. I could have done that to begin with, but it is better if the reader learns how to fix the issues themselves. :-)

Yes, I would like to redo the chapter. Hopefully I get better at this before I do another chapter.

Thanks for being patient while I learn how to make the volume better.

The volume is better for the initial file, but still a little low at 84.3 DB. Can you try to get it up a little more?

If you download a program called checker, which was made to check the tech specs for Librivox files, it will tell you if your volume passes. You can find it here: https://cgjennings.ca/checker.html

Or there is a program called mp3 gain that will tell you the volume as well.

Hey Maria! Can I have a week extension on section 3? I just need to edit it and then I can turn it in. For the other sections, would you please orphan them? Thank you so much for understanding!
Please be patient with me while I am on vacation (7/18-7/22) with limited access to Internet.

Pl note Chapter 3.

Everything is great except 13:10 there is a longish pause with a thump in the middle of it. :-)
