Hey all,
I can indeed correct the file name when cataloging. :thumbs:

Great. You can have it. First, what name would you like for the catalogue? This is what all listeners can see. I can also link to a personal blog or website.

Hello,

I am sorry it took so long. Audacity is new to me and I have done this for the first time.
Realized it's not that easy, especially not in a house full of people and noise.
Finally completed it and would request for a time extension to correct anything that I get feedback on.
Since I had to split a lot, I could not modify or correct the voice changes properly but I did it as much as it could be understood.

Kindly, listen to it and give feedback with suggestions.

Thanks a lot! Chuck is our proof listener for this project, so when he finds time he will listen and give feedback. And you may definitely have an extension on any notes you may receive. Hopefully recording will just get easier from now on!

Finished Chapter 1, which has some minor editing errors in a couple of spots:

11:20 - “sharp little nose and a pair of inquisitorial ey—“ - line clips off abruptly
18:52 - “he begged Ogden not to hurry his departu—“ - line clips off abruptly and the next line butts up against this one -- it was jolting!

There's also only three seconds of silence at the end, not five.

These are obviously beginner's errors, and I hope you won't get too discouraged by my pointing them out. Trying to edit a cohesive chapter out of a long, unedited sound file with a bunch of flubbed takes (some of which you have to re-record) can be difficult. Just try to be a little more careful when editing out errors in the future and re-listen to certain passages to make sure they're not garbaged or cut off.
Current Projects:
SOLO: The Intermediate Sex (Edward Carpenter)
GROUP: Prison Memoirs of an Anarchist (Alexander Berkman)
