Section 4

2.40

Differentiating aurally between the different spelling of names was quite tricky, I hope it makes sense :help:

Thank you, Alan! I think you did great with the names; I can't think of clearer way to pronounce them.
The recording is PL OK! I'll mention noise-reduction as optional in case you meant to do it, only because this one has some slight background noise compared to the previous.

I have noise cleaned this and re-uploaded. No changes so it should not need PLing again.

I usually do one round of light noise cleaning on my files but I may have forgotten this time. I don't tend to hear background noise as my hearing is deteriorating as I get older. :(

Thank you, Alan! The background noise was not bad at all, but compared to the preceding chapter it was noticeable. Now it's as clean :thumbs:

Not quite what I expected. I guess we have different ideas of what "Open Atlantic" really means. :lol:
