I checked section 6 and it's volume is to low also but I didn't look at all sections before I started PL'ing.

Standard PL says for the volume that the ideal case is at 89 db +/- 2 db, so your files I listened to were a lot outside of this range.

My settings of noise reduction are:

noise reduction 20 db
sensitivity 4,00
frequency smoothing (bands): 3
noise: reduce

This works quite good for me.

Another thing I didn't mention: You are working a lot with your mouse? You can hear the clicks of it in a regular basis throughout all of your files. It is not this loud / not much disturbing so I didn't mention it.
I don't have a mouse connected actually. I'm using a Surface tablet so I use my finger to slide up the text as I read. I'll do some tests to see if that or something else is creating the clicks. I didn't even notice them but will surely listen out for them now.

Thank you for taking the time to check the other sections. I really appreciate you taking the time to do that.

Thankfully, we were spared in South Florida. So many others were not so fortunate. :(

Section 12, Volume One Part 11 (end of volume one)
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/lifeofharriotstuart_12_lennox_128kb.mp3
37:10

September will be a busy month for me, but I will claim Volume Two and try to get them done.

Thanks for your support all along!
Volume +8,3 db

end of file 11 sec silence instead of 5 sec

clicks / noises at 0:18, 0:23, 0:28 – 0:30, 10:32, 12:33, 18:44,

there are more clicks but not this disturbing - I suspect that I can hear many of the clicks because of waiting for it (and seeing it in the waveform of audacity...)

At the end you said 'End of Volume One - End of section...' I would switch it: first end of section then end of volume. Seems to be more logical for me but is not part of standard proof listening.

I didn't listen to the whole file again but did some spot listening, so section 3 is PL:OK so far but at the end there should be 5 seconds silence instead of 2 seconds.

This one was a doozy!
Section 7: Volume One Part Six
40:16
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/lifeofharriotstuart_07_lennox_128kb.mp3
There should be max 1 sec silence in the beginning and about 5 sec silence at the end – this file have slightly more silence (2 sec / 7 sec). Not that bad I think but there is more to edit ;-)

Volume needs to be adjusted about +9,7 db

There is a loud click at 3:48,


missed edits at 3:55-3:59 and 4:25-4:28,


repeated reading:
 I would have taken this night and to morrow to have considered of the proposal you made me
; 22:03 – 22:14
‚Mistake‘ still at 3:55 and 4:22

Still there: repeated reading:
 I would have taken this night and to morrow to have considered of the proposal you made me
; 22:03 – 22:14

end silence only 3 sec
