Hi,
I just found that an abandoned project I adopted had multiple minutes of ending silence in one of the sections.
It concerns the Phenomenology of Mind, https://librivox.org/the-phenomenology-of-mind-volume-1-by-georg-wilhelm-friedrich-hegel/ Section 11.
Is there anything we can do about that?

It was PL OK'd. Very strange.

Is all the text there, or did it wipe out the last few minutes of recording?

The original posted time for the section was 29:53, so the length is correct. The question is whether the PL really messed up. :roll:

EDIT to add: but yes, if it's simply a matter of a long end silence, we can fix it. If text is missing, that's a more complicated problem.

It has the proper outro ("End of chapter ..., recording by ..."), so it seems like all the text is there. The recording (including ~5seconds of ending silence) should have ended at around 26:35. The ~3,5 minutes from there on are just silence. So it seems like it was a PL mistake.

OK, I'll download it, cut out the silence, and replace the file. :)
