Here is section 17, Capter 5, part 1.
It was harder and longer than I thought, but I am getting familiar with the process, and I think it will be easier next time.
I welcome criticism, as I am sure I must have mispronunced a few things (German, French, English, Latin and Spanish words here or there).
In any case, I can take section 18, assuming this section is ok.
You have a pleasant reading voice, and you've done a nice job with the languages. I'm surprised that you included French on your list, because you sound like a native speaker... and possibly a fellow North American?
The only change required under the standard level of PL is adding "End of section 17" at the end and shortening the final silence to ~5 seconds (currently ~9).
Since you solicited criticism I will also suggest a couple of optional changes:
(26:16) bottom of p. 149. "1507" is pronounced "fifteen oh seven" (not "zero") or "fifteen hundred and seven"
(26:34) top of p. 150 "by the empire and not by the emperor". I guessed what these two nouns were from the context, but my ear couldn't tell which one was which. You pronounced both of them more clearly elsewhere, so perhaps this was something like a slip of the tongue.
(38:49) p. 153, I hear "suscessible" instead "susceptible"
When the PL suggests an optional change, you can reply that you will leave it as is. Do you know how to replace a single phrase in a recording? If not, there's a demo in the middle of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9NuSuWYaWg
Also, for the future: Charles'
is pronounced with a "ziz" at the end and the stress in "Protestant" is on the first syllable. Mentioning it only because both occur frequently in this book.
When uploading the updated recording, please check the filename (there's no "p" in cambridge) and list the duration (mm:ss) with the URL.
