Here are revisions of Sections 17-20 to correct introductions, and I promise to do this correctly from now on. :)
Thank you, Joshua! Kudos to you for making all the corrections in such a short time. :thumbs:

Sec.22 PL OK. :thumbs:
Joshua, you have completed over a third of the volume and signed up for almost a half. When you convert it to a solo project you could get the benefit of shortened intro :D

Hi! Thank you for your interest.
From what I can see, another BC has given you the green light to start recording.
Nonetheless, it'll be good if you can still post your test recording in the listener wanted page and see if all technical aspects are fine before I assign section 27 or 28 to you.

Thanks!

Welcome to the project, Lysa, and thank you for the quick recording!
I'll listen as soon as I can, but I see problems right away.
1. Sec. 27 is too quiet, and 28 too loud. The volume should be 89 +/- 3 dB.
2. The speed of 400 words/min for sec.27 looks way too fast, and 900 wpm for 28 not humanly possible. :shock:
Are you sure you've narrated the sections in full?

for the volume, should i modify the sound wave through effects or the dials on the left?
or should i do a re-read?

also with speed, I'm certain I've read the sections in full
but what should the speed be around?

Dear Lysa,
If you use Audacity, then please adjust recordings volume using Effect > Amplify.
Also it is a good idea to use the Compress effect to make the level more uniform. There is plenty of help at https://wiki.librivox.org/
also with speed, I'm certain I've read the sections in full
Sorry, but you have not. :(
Sec.27 should have started from the beginning of Youth II: "SABINE. He went home..."
@10:25 please say "end of section 27"

Sec.28 @0:18 please say "youth two, part 2"
it should end with "she felt that he detested them and wished to avenge himself: and she wept bitterly.", but you ended it with "Good night" too early.
At the end please say "end of section 28", I hear "end of section 2".
but what should the speed be around?
Your speed is fine :)
