If they are 80 dB or over then I'll take care of them. Reason I don't want to fix lower numbers is that noise can overwhelm the submitted mp3 of readings if I try to amplify too much; it might work better if the reader amplifies their original file before making the mp3.

Thanks, Todd

SECTION 72 - Montague Tigg - An undesirable acquaintance of Martin Chuzzlewit

~ 3.56-4.00 There is a point near the bottom of the page where Tigg is about to speak and Martin cuts him off.
I am not sure what should be done here. Todd?

M. C. [Biting his Up] Now, sir, this is a large town,
and we can easily find different ways in it. If you will
show me which is your way, I will take another. [Mr.
Tigg is about to speak, but Martin interposes.]
There should be a small gap in the line so I can insert the narration "Mr Tigg is about to speak, but Martin interposes". The narration line is not just about the words, but gives me an image of Tiggs leaning forward, drawing a breath and about to speak, and then jerking back offended when he is cut off.
~ 5.05-5.09 There is a misread here. "It being a matter of business" should be "It being made a matter of business"
I don't think this is much difference in the meaning - okay for standard PL.

Thanks, Todd

I'm a little lost. Is Montague Tigg PL OK, or are there changes that are required?

Hello all. I do so apologize. In an effort to perform better in this project I have discussed with Todd some of the finer points of what he is looking for. I also wanted to make sure I went through all the plays and marked them with lines to make it a little easier to tell if anything was missed. I have now returned. I will also go back and look at all currently marked for as requiring edits and verify that they do actually require edits. I will not review those files that are marked as PL OK at this time.

Hi Lydia, I will mark this one as PL OK as Todd will be uploading the stitched files and adjusting the volumes for the completed play at that time. Thanks for your patience. :D No further edits are required on this section.

PL NOTES:

SECTION 60 - Mr Pecksniff - An architect and land-surveyor

PL OK

I will mark this one as PL OK since the only real error here is a mis-read that does not affect the meaning of the phrase. Thanks for your patience. You do not need to edit this section any further. :D
