[LANGUAGE: GENRE] The Hawaiian Archipelago by Isabella L. Bird
Six months among the palm groves, coral reefs, and volcanoes of the Sandwich Islands.

This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections.

Project thread: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=77138
Please post in the project thread if you can help with proof-listening.

Level of PL: Standard
  • Does the intro match the one specified in the first post of the project thread (below the Magic Window)? 

  • Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time. 

  • Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time. 

  • Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading? 

  • Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?) 

  • Does the ending match the one specified in the first post of the project thread?
  • Are there 5 seconds of silence at the end of each recoding file?

 

New to prooflistening? Please read this FAQ. 


Also, any feedback on mispronunciation of Hawaiian words and placenames would be most welcome.
