I see you have an "OK" on your test recording so you are welcome to record for this project.
I do need to know, however, exactly how you would like to be listed in the LiibrVox catalog -- real name, pseudonym or any nickname you wish. This is how you will be credited for all of your LV work.

Also, it is a lot easier for us if you include the Section number from the Magic Window when making a request.

Anyway, welcome aboard!
You have Section 22 to record.

Thank you! I will use section number next time. I would like to be credited as Lily Kuntz. Here is section 22:

Duration: 05:46
Thank you. I have a few comments on your recording.
1. There is too much silence at the start. Please remove around 1 second as you want between 0.5 and 1 second of silence at the start.
2. I recommend that you run the file through the noise reduction feature of audacity or whatever program you are using to clear up some of the background hum.
3. At 0:08, there is a snap in the word "western". This doesn't need to be fixed here but if you do fix it please let me know.
4. At 1:05, there is a loud snap, could you please delete.
5. At around 3:42, there is a rather lengthy pause. Could you please shorten it to match your other breaks.

I would suggest that you pay close attention to your recordings for the next few to try to eliminate the lip smacks that occur.


Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

M
I re-uploaded here. I removed the snap mentioned in #3 along with all other corrections. https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/westernbirds_22_grinnell_128kb.mp3

Your recording is PL OK. However, I have a few suggestions for you to improve the quality in future recordings. You should speak a little slower and enunciate you words more clearly. Some in the recording are a bit hard for me to understand. There is no need to make any changes to this recording so don't worry about changing this one.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

M
