Perils in the Transvaal and Zululand by Henry Cadwallader Adams (1817 - 1899).

This was an abandoned solo, reactivated as a group project
A young man travels to South Africa to find his Mother and sister. He wants to be a clergyman and a farmer when he arrives there. This story includes accounts of the Zulu-Boer wars. ( Ingrid Kennedy)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38175
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Ingrid,
I set this up for you. There are 24 chapters. I will send you a private message about the Magic Window. How would you like your name to appear in the catalog, as Ingrid Kennedy?
Thanks,
Amy

Hi Ingrid,
You will be in Going Solo. You don't have to wait for a proof listener. One will come along or I can listen to some. I hope you enjoy it!

I found this file in the tests folder, not sure if this is relevant here since it was already uploaded in February?

Cheers,

Thanks, Ava. I have a copy in my folder, too. It never made it into the MW. I'll PM Ingrid.

Sounds like this is going to be a great story!

I PLed section 1.

Please add a little silence to the beginning. Between .5 and 1 second will be perfect.

Intro doesn't match the initial post. Some of the text is missing:

"Chapter [number] of Perils in the Transvaal and Zululand. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Say:
"Perils in the Transvaal and Zululand, by H.C. Adams. [Chapter]"

Ending doesn't match the initial post. Please add End of Chapter 1.

Please add ending silence. We need ~5 seconds or your recording may get cut off during playback.

Volume is too low at 85.8dB. We aim for 89dB but have an acceptable range of 86-92dB.

File name does not match our requirements. When you upload the revision please rename as perils_01_adams_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case)

Hi Linny,
Thank you for proof listening this section. Ingrid is gone so I will list this as abandoned. Sorry for the inconvenience.
