Here is the link to Chapter 16, ‘Old Woman’ 3-lines only (one scene).

Filters applied: click removal, noise reduction, normalize, and ReplayGain
Checker Validation: Passed

Timestamps:

“What do ‘e want” at ~6.22
“I’ll get the perlice in at yer” at ~10.2
“See if I don’t” at ~13.36

Based on the scene, the second and third lines are amplified to reflect the urgency and distress of the situation but they may just be too loud even though Checker says they are within range.

Thank you.
I bravely venture down those roads less traveled but not without applying sunblock first :wink:

Hi! I have 2 quick questions. The first is that I can pull off a pretty good Australian accent, should I use it? Or should I stick with my natural American accent? Second is that there's a short paragraph before my character's (Clemant Rankin) lines in chapter 2 that seems like narration, but in that paragraph is a deposition that my character had made earlier, and I was wondering if I should record that deposition as well?

Thanks,
Derek

1. Yes, you can use an Australian accent if you want. I believe some readers did that. It's optional.

2. Could you please tell me the page so I can quickly find it? Thanks.

Sorry I'm using the HTML version which doesn't have page numbers, so I copied the paragraph in question, it's right before the last Q & A in chapter II. It is probably a page before the start of ch. III.

"Dr. Chinston was then permitted to retire, and Clement Rankin, another hansom cabman, was called. He deposed: I am a cabman, living in Collingwood, and usually drive a hansom cab. I remember Thursday last. I had driven a party down to St. Kilda, and was returning about half-past one o'clock. A short distance past the Grammar School I was hailed by a gentleman in a light coat; he was smoking a cigarette, and told me to drive him to Powlett Street, East Melbourne. I did so, and he got out at the corner of Wellington Parade and Powlett Street. He paid me half-a-sovereign for my fare, and then walked up Powlett Street, while I drove back to town."

I'm wondering if I should read "I am a cabman..." to "...I drove back to town."

Thanks,

Derek

Hi, Derek!

Yes, it is part of your lines. As you can see, Annie has assigned it to Clement Rankin.

Here's the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mszhYXcBWTkiuV45Gn9heRlFH_Dm8JxO/view, Page: 6.
