hey Rob

here is Bellafront, the sister with the tragic love-life. I gave it my all to make her quite dramatic in act 3. Todd was quite nasty as Scudmore here, giving her a hard time.

Hope you like it:

Bhavya, Narrator

Acts 1,2,5 PL OK -- Thank you!

DP
The error is still here. At 20, you say "and ABOW few or none will bestow on these matters" instead of "and ABOVE few or..."

Act 3
Sorry, I asked for a fix in Act 2 at 0.25 ("Enter Pouts above" I hear 'abow' instead of 'above') but it is actually in Act 3 0.25.


Sonia (Bellafront), Major Toast (Serv. 1), and Elsie (Tailor/Bowlers/Parson)

All PL OK. Thank you!

Thank you and sorry for the delay. I've been away this week.

Scudmore

Act 1
5.00 “That ow’d a sensible member”. I hear “owned”.
6.20 “What means my—“. I hear “which” instead of “what”.

Act 2 PL OK

Act 3
0.40 “happy’s that wretch, in my opinion”. I hear “wrench”.
0.55 “such is my hell-bred hap!” Word unclear.
3.45 “when i have seen a maid’s inconstancy presented to the life!” I hear “Inconsistency”.

Act 4 & 5 PL OK

Thanks, Larry. A few things to fix.

Act 1
0.25 "Her portion is four thousand". I hear "your" instead of "her".
0.55 Missing "Captain!" at the end of the line, after "To be gentle in all parts."
1.00 "A soldier is a very [good] honourable title". "Good" added where indicated, where there should be no word.

Act 2
0.25 "If false, he shall abide the slander dearly." Mistake in the early part of the line.

Act 3
0.50 "A trusty servant. That way leads you to her." I think this was spoken as one sentence rather than two, perhaps with a small error.

Act 5
Last line begins with "Oh, parson, on" when should be "On, parson, on".

Hi, Larry. I've just downloaded them and, listening to the first two acts, it seems like they are the uncorrected originals. Could you double-check, please?

Rob, I found the error....the first sections were uploaded to Todd's folder instead of MaryAnn's. The new ones are in the correct folder now, so you need to change the file-name in the MW. Then it works....
