If you listen to the first one second and watch the meter up above, you'll see the meter bounce to the right.

You can do the same for the last 5 seconds where you likely used the generate silence effect. The meter doesn't move at all.

It may be that using the silence effect at the closing 5 seconds adjusts Checker downward, but that's only something I've heard. I don't know if that's true.

But you can use that first one second as a sample in the noise reduction effect and then, for the second step, select the whole recording and press 'Go,' or whatever the lower button says. (Hahah! I don't remember as it's so common for me.)

If you wanted, I bet you could find one of Phil's videos that explains noise reduction. (In fact, that's the main topic of our next unofficial LV Zoom sessions.)

If you would like, I can find an appropriate link for you.

Again, though, your recording is fine. And dandy.
Hey, thanks for the suggestion/instructions! :) I can see what you mean in the difference between the before/after with the noise reduction. I'll definitely use it again in the future.

I don't want to presume, but it appears that
Section 23, Chapter 16 Suicide and Homicide
MAY be orphaned (the reader doesn't seem to have been online since July.)
If so, may I claim it?
Not a pretty subject, but one we're seeing more of, sadly.

feathery hugs,

Sure! Sections 22 AND 23 are overdue by half a week now - they've got to be opened up to all.
Anyone interested in section 22?

Indeed! Hope it'll give us (and our future listeners) some valuable insights.

Hopping up and down and waving wings around - the MW doesn't say that I am confirmed for Section 23, Chapter 16.

It is mine, right? :mrgreen:

Oops! I thought I was waiting for a reply for section 22 and forgot to do the entry for section 23.
Thanks for the reminder! :thumbs:

By the way, we don't have a dedicated proof-listener just yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

So, I had a few minutes this a.m. and took the liberty of listening to
Preethy's excellent reading of Section 5, Chapter 3, part 1, Sacrifice.

First of all, enjoyed listening to well-read material in a nice speaking voice.

3 minor issues with CONTENT:
17:07 - (bottom of 1st paragraph p. 67): Nervousness, in the broad general sense of that word, is at bottom very often a manifestation of selfishness, that is, oversolicitude about oneself and one's affairs, ....
* I hear “over-solitude” *

18:29 - (1st paragraph p. 68) emphasized in his essay on the "Moral Equivalent of War.”
* I hear “equalent” *

20:26 - (last paragraph p. 68) He adds that "the martial type of character can be bred without war”,
* I hear “marital” *

2 TECHNICAL issues:
need full 0.5 to 1 second silence at both beginning and end of recording

volume: Checker gives the volume at 76.4 db; - YuquingJune, please verify, but I think the minimum acceptable volume level is 87? So need to Amplify the recording throughout.

Also, at around 17:20 it sounds as if Preethy moved back and forth from the microphone a couple of times.

All in all, great reading of the material! :)

Thanks Deborah! Technically her current volume is borderline fine, since Checker gives a "passed with warnings". But certainly it'll be nice if the volume can be increased to the optimal range!

Preethy, just in case you haven't checked this LibriVox wiki page, you can find everything you'll want to know about the app Checker here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker

It'll be good if you can do one round of volume adjustment using this tool before uploading in future. In fact, why not start this time? :wink:
Thank you!
