Thanks Lucas! Availle, I’ve checked that this link works, so I hope you should be able to open it now!

Todd will need to change the link in the first post to this one, as the old link still doesn’t work.

TJ, I really am very happy to use your Rat's file as it stands (that bell-pull is fine), but if you're set on a reading that's absolutely word-perfect, here are the slight deviations from the text that I spotted. Edit them or not, as you choose.

0:50 "He’s so very shy, he’d be sure to be offended. I’ve never even ventured to call on him at his own home myself ..." - missed out "be" from "he'd be sure"; missed "on" from "call on him"

02:05 "If we have to come, we come in couples, at least; then we’re generally all right." - missed "have to" from "If we have to come..."

05:28 "You don’t seem to be having much luck to-day, do you? Let’s have a look at the leg..." - I hear "let's have a look at *that* leg"

07:00 "Now look here, you--you thick-headed beast .." - there's only one "you" in your recording.

07:17 " ...if you want to sleep dry and warm to-night, for it’s our last chance!" - you've recorded "this is our last chance!" instead of "it's our last chance"

09:26 "..oughtn't we to do something" - "...oughten't we do something"

Peter
Hi Peter! Wow! You have a good ear. I agree that they're fine as is. I went ahead and corrected 3 of them - the ones that were easiest to edit in :D :

02:05 "If we have to come, we come in couples, at least; then we’re generally all right." - missed "have to" from "If we have to come..."

07:00 "Now look here, you--you thick-headed beast .." - there's only one "you" in your recording.

09:26 "..oughtn't we to do something" - "...oughten't we do something"

Thanks,
TJ

Here's the Wind in the Willows section: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/drsceneandstoryvol002_05_various_128kb.mp3

(58.12)

I was expecting it to go over 72 minutes, so I squeezed silences out where I could. As it turned out that there's time to spare, please do tell me of any places where PLing shows that more silence would improve it.

Got it, put it in the MW! I’ll PL it in the next day or two, paying attention to silences!

Hi Peter! Very tightly edited, but it makes the story move along nicely! There's only two spots where I really think it needs more space, both for the same reason - just to create a bit of room between sections:

@40:15 when the characters sleep
@50:16 just before "after luncheon"

The only other PL note just for your consideration, is that this file starts with the Cast List, instead of the more usual LV section title and disclaimer, followed by the Cast ist - was this on purpose? It's different to the other sections, but that's not necessarily a problem...

Thanks, Beth; here's the edited wind in the willows: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/drsceneandstoryvol002_05_various_128kb.mp3

I've moved the cast list as you asked. I had had it at the front end to make it easier to edit, and forgot that it was there.

The cast list correction is fine now, but the inserted spaces have a very loud “hiss” which sounds like it needs noise reduction? Or is there a quieter section you could copy and paste? I usually use the 5 seconds at the end of the file...

Re: Wind in the Willows.

Yes, I usually use the last five seconds as a source of silence, too. I can't remember what I used that time. My apologies.

Edited and uploaded.

Wind in the Willows is now fully PL OK! :9:

I'll update the MW, but Peter you will need to make a Cast List for the summary page.

Also, Todd, now that Willows is definitely not going to need story slot 6, do you have a plan for that section?
