Hi Amy,
Thank you. Here is my 1 min audio test: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=84400
All the best,
Don
Hi Don,
I approved your test in the other forum. Section 31 is yours. For some reason I plugged you in for Section 2. Sorry about that.
Thanks,
-Amy

It's interesting to me that political thought from this time frame, and others, can still resonate today.

Hi Jim,
That would be great.
Section 11 is PL OK. It brings Prince Harry to mind.
Thanks!

Section 11 - Aristocracy PL OK.
Well done Jim!! Very well done :clap:
In my PL-mode I look for readers' slips and when I get near the end without finding one, I bear down and demand that I find one.
Alas for me: your recitation was diamond-pure.

I do apologize for having taken so long to PL this, but you know how it is: When the mother ship up in orbit sends down its tractor beam and pulls one out of his car, you just gotta go.

Hi there!

I'm sorta just barging in here and presenting to you a recording of section 2.

It's my first ever shot at recording a narration. I did it as an experiment but I think it's of a good quality to present for this project. You can be picky and reject it, I don't mind. There is occasional saliva noise which I need to work on with practice.

Regardless, you can hear me impersonate Madame De Genlis at 20:10 :mrgreen:.

I hope this is useful.

EDIT: Length is 22:59

PL NOTES for section 2

======================================
ReeseT: I see no sign that your 1-minute test has been reviewed by the Librivox Devils who do such reviewing. Let me be the first: your voice and recording specifications are top-notch. And, of course, your empire accent is charming.

However, if you look below you'll see a long (20+) list of faux pas that I found in your file. I am going to guess that no one has informed you that it is a reader's responsibility to PL (Proof Listen) his files before uploading them into the project and before the eyes of the poor DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener). You are supposed to record your file, then go back and once or twice proof listen to the file and fix errors you find. Do this fix & edit with the text in front of you.

Make these fixes below and re-upload the file, please.

Note: If you apply the fixes starting at the back of the file and work forward, the time hash marks will not be disturbed.

3:05 heard "uh-surpation" s/b usually "yew-surpatiion"

It is great having you back, Bill!
Thanks, Amy.
Just to give you an idea of the cause of my absence: for 3 months my wife and I were in loco parentis to my 16-year-old granddaughter. She has gone back home now and I'm trying to catch up. So much fun, but so much stress, too.

Thanks for the feedback William. Good to know the recording quality is on point. The accent is almost accidental, I sound much more Aussie in general talk.

I did indeed proofread before uploading. I will need to be more discerning with individual word pronounciation.

Before moving forward, I want to make sure we are reading the same version of the text. Mine is from the link on the original posting (https://archive.org/details/enquiryconcernin02godwuoft/page/n3/mode/2up). There were differences in strings of text which indicate we might be on different versions. I've referred to both the PDF and text versions of the file:
21:51 heard "eight of age" s/b "eight YEARS of age"
Says "eight of age" on the linked version
10:17 omitted " in a long series of ages"
I cannot find "in a long series of ages" in the document, even with the search function
10:17 heard "far" inserted between "and how FAR an enlightgened. European..."
This is the correct sentence in the linked version of the text
08:13.5 Head "DRIVEN to despair"
s/b "REDUCED to despair"
Says driven on the linked version
