I can't read French. Can I get a female or male French speaker to record this passage
that appears at the beginning of a chapter of Strangers and Pilgrims by Mary Elizabeth Braddon. The book is in the Readers Found section.


" Et je songeais comme la femme onblie,
Et je sentais un lambeau de ma vie
Qui se dechirait lentement."

I hope I can cut and paste your section into the book

Hi John,

I'll get you that.

ETA: here you are: https://librivox.org/uploads/ezwa/French4johnb2.mp3 (there was a typo: it's "la femme oublie").

Hi Ezwa

I tried to cut and paste the section you sent me, but Audacity does not recognize the file.
Any tips to open it in Audacity?

I happened to be online; I downloaded the file and it played okay. It may be that you tried to "open" the file with Audacity, rather than "importing" it.

Thank you Peter,

I can open the file OK here. But it won't open when I import to Audacity.

It opens OR imports fine for me in Audacity, too. Very strange.

Try this one: https://librivox.org/uploads/ezwa/French4johnb2.flac

If that doesn't work, please give exact steps of what you are doing.
