Thanks, Leanne! Great reading as always.

Acts 1 and 5 PL OK

Act 2

From 20 seconds there is some bumping picked up on the mic. Would you mind re-recording these lines?
"Sir, you shall not.
What stain my honour hath received by this
Base villain, all the world takes notice of."

Same again at 1.22:
"Be this true or no,
'Tis thy best course to fight."

and 1.45
"I must not eat nor sleep, [but] weep,
Till it be done."

OK, Foon, these are great. I was worried that asking for slurring would mean the words would be difficult to make out, but this is a really good balance.

One thing, since you request pronunciation notes. In act 3, in the line "'Tis pestilence sack and cruel claret", I would expect 'claret' to be 'klarut' https://www.google.com/search?q=claret Would you mind re-reading that?

Hello,

Here are my files for narrator:
...
Thanks,
Bhavya
Hi Bhavya,

Thanks! It's not necessary to put the 128kb thing at the end because your recordings won't be uploaded to the Internet Archive as they are (I will edit them together with everyone else's recordings and then export the final acts which will have the 128kb at the end). Really, you can call these files anything as long as I know which part and play they are in, so I don't get confused when I am editing. Likewise, the length of the files isn't necessary (I will listen to them and if anything is missing, I will let you know, and the length of the file doesn't help me to do that).

Of course, thanks for doing this and for asking: I let you know this so you don't feel the need to do extra work.

I will PL the files later and get back to you.

Hi Bhavya,

Thanks again. Acts 3 and 4 are PL OK, and there are just a few small things I will ask you to change in the other files.

DP
0.20 "And above" I hear 'abow'. You say it the same way in Act 2, so perhaps this is a pronunciation difference, but I think some listeners might not recognise the word. Would you mind listening to this pronunciation reference and re-reading? Pronunciation: https://www.google.com/search?q=above&oq=above

act 1
2.05 "Abraham looking about" I hear 'out' when it should be 'about'.

act 2
0.25 "Enter Pouts above" I hear 'abow' instead of 'above'.
2.15 Missing line: "Enter Servant."

act 5
0.35 'Cudgels' is not a commonly used word and it might be difficult for listeners to recognise it. Pronunciation: https://www.google.com/search?q=cudgel&oq=cudgel
