I've popped you in there, Julia -- please take a look and make sure it's all okay!

Thankyou.

I think maybe I should add something about having difficulty pronouncing the letter "r". For honesty's sake.

I'm a PLer not a reader, but my feedback is this-- in the Other Info column I'd love to be able to suggest strengths readers may not be aware they manifest. I can readily see the mess that could create, but maybe someone else sees an appropriate channel for that thought to flow in.

OTOH, maybe I'm still too new around here to know that the heck I'm talking about. :wink: It's happened before. :oops:

Accent: English accent is closer to neutral British, but tend to sometime mix American and British.

Do you think you could add me in as well?

Location: Lancashire, UK

Accent: General northern England, but can manage a few regional accents on request! I usually try to put a few different accents into my readings to differentiate between characters.

Would one of the very kind Admin Team please add me to the table. Of course I could easily do it myself... if altering a Wiki page didn't put me into a blind funk, cold sweat and shivering wreckedness.

Accent: RP

Hi folks, Could someone add me to the table? I've tried but break out into a cold sweat with an occasional hot flash when I try and fail. Thank you. David Wales

I've noticed the sample link next to my description is broken. If it can be fixed that would be awesome. Also I'd like it changed to reflect my new recording set up:
http://www.archive.org/download/fiddler_dooney_1112_librivox/fiddlerofdooney_yeats_lkp.mp3

For some reason my old recordings have really terrible bg noise. Since I know how to noise clean I've no idea why I left them that way.
So little space, so much to say.

Done ... please check! :D

[I also updated Carl and earthcalling's links too, since those were broken in a similar way.]
