Here is 10

Russ, here are some notes on your section 10. Why won't Mrs. Alston just leave him the heck alone? :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

Volume is at 92.6, which is outside the acceptable range (86-92). Can you wind that down a bit?

6:01 "answer to his friend" should be "answer of his friend"
8:59 stumble of "Ohio count country"
13:55 "personal assistant" should be "personal attendant" (more military perhaps?)
15:09 "She sh who is she" delete "sh"
15:24 very loud scratching noise
18:18 repeat of: "these are strange words"
22:56 "she stood slight swaying" should be "she stood slightly swaying"
23:20 "let me go what yonder" should be "let me go yonder"

I would definitely recommend you do a check of volume using the Volume Checker (see Newbie Guide to Recording) to make sure volume is always within range. Also, please always do a thorough editing job before submitting your files to check for stumbles, repeats and such. We all have them! :lol: :lol: Usually, the editing of one's file takes longer than the recording, but it's worth it.

Here are my two sections:


7 Colonel Burr and His Daughter

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/magnificentadventure_07_hough_128kb.mp3
10:18

11 The Taming of Patrick Gass

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/magnificentadventure_11_hough_128kb.mp3
12:04


Thanks,

M

Sections 7 and 11 nicely read :thumbs: I have just a couple of notes:

Sec 7:
At the start, please say "Part 1, chapter 7"
3:32 phrase missing: "her start" (you can do a cut and paste here to add these words - let me know if you need help doing that)
At the end, please say "Part 1, chapter 7"

Sec 11:
At the start, please say "Part 1, chapter 11"
2:43 "I can kick the best of yez" should be "I can lick the best of yez"
At the end, "End of part 1, chapter 11"

Just FYI, there is no need to fill out the Metadata window (the one that opens when you are saving). All of that gets overwritten anyway when the book gets catalogued.


Here are the revised recordings:

Part 1, Chapter 7

Part 1, Chapter 11

Here is corrected 10


https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/magnificentadventure_10_hough_128kb.mp3 Time: 24:48

I wish I could explain all the corrections that were clearly needed, but I can't. My procedure is to always (I believe carefully) edit my files before I upload them. As you say, that usually takes longer than the recording. I also check and if necessary adjust the volume with MP3 Express and I run them by Checker, all before I upload them. So how could so much have slipped by me for Section 10. I simply have no explanation. I do usually have a little whiskey late in the afternoon and it is possible I was dealing with this file around that time. :D :D :D

Sec 26 is PL OK :thumbs:


Ann: Would you be kind enough to make sure that this revised file has been put into the MW? I see that the old file (which was incorrectly named part 2, chapter 12, is still there. Many thanks

This was already marked PL OK a few days ago. Thanks though :thumbs:

Section 2 sounds good. We still have, however, an issue at 19:01. Would you mind checking that once again?
Rita,
Has the reader for section 02 accomplished what you asked? I do think quite a bit was taken care of according to the mw. Seems like there is 1 item still left?

Yes, according to my notes, there was still a jumpiness at 19:01. It's not severe, so maybe we can pass it if you think.

Hello Rita I did just listen and the stumble on the word success is okay in my thoughts so you can mark it pl okay. :D
