what do you do while you proof listen?

Everything except LibriVox (yes, this is where knitting gets discussed. Now includes non-LV Volunteers Wanted projects)

Still not as surprising as someone I know who listens to audiobooks while swimming :shock:

Right now my summer vacation's stuffed with PLings and research proposals (I'm a psychology major, researches are a mountain pile), and I WRITE my proposal while PLing to save time. It got me some time though, when I actually wrote down into my methodology and review of related literature what I just heard from For Every Music Lover and "Rameau's Nephew".

I'm quite found to listening to audiobooks while I do some sport (exercise bike, a bit of fitness and bodybuilding, etc.). So now I also PL while exercising.

I need to keep busy with my hands or else my mind starts to wander and I don't hear a thing... :roll: so I tend to do crafts or DIY or cleaning/ironing... sometimes I play games on my phone :D

Call me old-fashioned but I open the recording in audacity and read along to the text on my laptop.
This is the best way for me to concentrate, but for standard pl I do not comment on odd changes of words if the context is not lost.

No, I don't think that's old-fashioned. It's exactly what I do! :)
Between being a full-time college student and working 20+ hours per week, I'm not able to be involved at LV these days, but I remain a loyal fan and look forward to a triumphant return sometime in the (probably distant) future.

At the risk of sliding off-topic, I have trouble with a bright white background and black text so I download a version I can read in PDF and reverse the colours in my PDF viewer. Black background with a dull white text is much easier on my eyes.

Just being a Devil's advocate
In a way - the idea of proof listening is to make sure people can listen and understand the reading - so it may be better not to read along with the text. So I wouldn't want people to think they had to :D
And my trouble with listening with it open in Audacity is I itch to cut out that thump and squash that plosive .... and the PLer should not change any files unless specifically asked to. So when I am PLing I try to remember I am Pling and take off any other hats I am wearing
