bizarre, all three files I just downloaded have the same length. But then I see you have left over 2 minutes of silence at the end ;)

Everything wonderfully narrated, very lively at the appropriate places, and sensitive at others. The narrator really is part of the play here. :thumbs: I love that.

Acts 2 and 3 straight PL ok.

A very minor edit for Act 1 though:

> at 2:05: (p. 11) "reads" – I know it's not written in the book, but it's best to repeat here "Mousta reads" because Vavir is introduced right before this, and one would think that reads refers to her in this case

The rest perfectly fine as well. Thank you so much, Michael, another wonderful job. :9:

Many thanks. I've added the extra word to act 1, and here it is again for spot PL:

I remembered too late, when uploading the originals, that if you run Audacity ReplayGain on several tracks at once it unhelpfully pads out the shorter to the length of the longest. I corrected the lengths and re-uploaded a few minutes later but I expect by then you'd seen the first upload.

:shock: seriously ? I never knew that, but then I never run replaygain on several tracks at once. Didn't even know you could do that in Audacity. Do you have multiple programmes of Audacity open at the same time then ? Even if I have that, I can only work on one window at a time. :hmm:
