Here's chapter 12 again.

Hopefully it's ok. I've had loads of problems recording it. I'm using the same mic and noise thingy in front as before, although positioning it to the side to avoid plosions. I'm also recording in the same room. However no matter what I did the sound quality didn't seem as good as before (much more echoey etc).

I am now working on editing this together so I can get it in the catalogue. I have been away for a while but will hopefully get this done soon.

PL note for Chapter 2:

@2:14 the start of the word "Yes" appears to have been chopped off in editing? (Unless it was wrong in the file, I didn't check.)

PL comments for Chapter 1 - these are optional, it depends on how fussy you want to be.

- is there no voice credit for Lydia or Vicki? I think you read their voice credits in the DP. This means that the first time they speak their voices are not identified. I presume there is no voice credit or you would have put it in already, but the other solution would be to have the narration identify them the first time they speak. I can give you "said the girl with the eyeglasses" etc, if you don't already have it.

- Leanne's lines are significantly softer than everyone else, and as she speaks very fast as well, this makes her lines difficult to understand. This is something to be aware of for the rest of the files, but I would suggest amplifying at least her first couple of speeches in Chapter 1.

I've marked Chapter 1 PL notes, but if you decide not to change either of these things just switch it to PL OK - the text was all fine and I think the light narration style works fine in a DR!
