Hello,
Thanks for getting back to me about this.
I have re-recorded this Chapter, amplified it, but did not use noise reduction.
Below is my re-recording of Chapter 1:

I look forward to hearing back from you.
Kind regards,

PL notes for Chapter 1:

@2:04-2:10 there is a cough, click and a repeat which I think you meant to edit out "more leisure to devote to thought..."
@2:49 long pause either side of the word "Anatolian coast" which is mispronounced. I don't usually point out pronunciation irregularities but this is a historical and geographical book, people need to know the region we are talking about. It is "AN-A-TOL-EE-AN" pretty much the way it looks - just watch the order of the consonants.
@3:38 repeat of the word "adjustment/Adjustments"
@4:29 stumble and repeat "contributed enormously to the development of individuality and intelligence"
@5:48 wrong word and then correction "clearest/earliest" (text has earliest)
@6:06 repeat of "below" with a loud cough between repeats.
@6:16 wrong word and repeat " and grape/grapes" (either would have been fine, but not both please.)
@6:40 repeated phrase "the mountaineer gave his chief attention"
@7:21 wrong word and then correction "dry tricky/prickly food"
@8:35 repeated phrase with correction "and everywhere they were the ornament"
@8:55 repeated word "moderate/moderately"
@9:01 wrong word then correction "exit" to "exist"
@9:11 repeated corrected phrase "turning from farming and grazing to materials/minerals"
@10:12 repeated word "Thracian" (the second pronunciation would be my preference)
@11:02 repeated word with long pauses "inferior"
@11:48 messy sentence with stumbles and repeats "another feature of Greece which bore powerfully on character"
@12:04 stumble and repeat "by high mountains/high mountain ranges"
@12:14 repeated phrase "and the north"
@12:40 loud cough
@13:54 repeated phrase "the beauty is not sensuous inviting to eat, drink and/or sleep"
@14:05 repeated word "noblest"
@14:09 repeated phrase "naked, jagged"

Whew! It looks like a lot of notes, but most of these are cuts which you just need to take out.

As an aside, it really is quicker if you do your own editing straight after recording. It is evident from the repeats that you were aware of most of these mistakes as they occurred, so if you cut them out yourself before submitting your file for PL it is much more efficient for everyone.

Section 02.
"Additional reading" at on pages 29, 30, not included as I assumed references of this kind are in this came similar to footnotes.

Hi there! I'm Laura and I've been helping Elizabeth with PL. Here are PL notes for chapter 2:

at 46:15 there is a small deviation of the text. You read "West of the Aeolians was an area occupied either at that time or somewhat later by a people described simply as the Northern Greeks" while in the text (page 26) it says "West of the Aeolians was an area occupied either at that time or somewhat later by a people described simply as the Northwestern Greeks."

In the end, you finished by saying "end of section two" when it should be "end of chapter two"

Cheers!

Thanks for these. Will of course fix, but have to wait until I’m back towards the end of August

One nifty method I learned from a sound chappy for corrections that might be helpful is this:

As soon as you realise you’ve made a mistake, either say a loud sharp phrase (eg, Dah! Dah!) or knock twice on a hard surface. Leave a second or two gap, then repeat the phrase or whole sentence correctly and continue on. (Doing a phrase/sentence rather than a single word makes it so much easier to edit later)
When you are finished and return in listen/edit mode, you’ll see each time you made those sharp sounds, because they show up as two large loud marks on the wave pattern, and it’s just a matter of selecting and deleting the incorrect bit.
Hope this helps. I use it all the time. Love your accent BTW.

One other tip, if you haven’t come across it before: if you edit the file from the last time stamp going forward then the all the time stamps will be correct. (If you start from the first one at the start of the file, the times will all change in the later sections of the file.)
