Hi! Yes, I thought we could wait and see if maybe one more person would like to help out before removing the Listeners Wanted ad. :)

PL notes for Chapter 20:

1:55 - I heard "followed him into the cab" but it should be "into the cabin"
4:35 - a repeat of "she's always interfering"
11:35 - I heard "observed barely dryly" but it should be "observed Barry dryly"

Good morning! I've PL'ed Chapter 21. My initial thought is that this file wasn't edited prior to submission; however, I listened all of the way through and here are the notes:

At 00:36 - a stumble "there was ... there never was"
at 00:56 - heard "at least she said" but it should be "at last she said"
at 01:51 - heard "Mrs. Mafferty" but it should be "Mr. Mafferty"
at 02:26 - a stumble " nur...nature"
at 02:55 - repeat "and I,...and I had"
at 07:29 - heard "quietly turned his direction in the head of the Judge's house" but it should be "quietly turned his head in the direction of the Judge's house"
at 07:56 - heard "would have affounded" but it should be "would have afforded"
at 08:33 - a stumble "women...woman"
at 09:46 - heard "he looked at one hundred and ten with long, shrewd and calculating" should be "his look at one hundred and ten was long, shrewd and calculating"
at 10:40 - a stumble "sus..suspicion"
at 12:08 - heard "he reiterated" should be "she reiterated"
at 13:18 - a stumble "hurp him...hurt him"
at 13:33 - a stumble "requartering...requitting" (it's pronounced "reckon-oy-ter-ing" if that helps - a tough word for sure to pronounce!)
at 16:57 - repeat "he will likely...he will be likely"
at 17:44 - repeat "fellow...fellows like"
at 18:33 - repeat "at rast...at last"
at 18:45 - heard "said Mrs. Barry" but it should be "said Barry"
at 19:13 - heard "if we do capture them" but it should be "if we capture them" (the "do" seems to change the meaning to me)
at 19:56 - heard "empathetically" but it should be "emphatically"
at 20:25 - a repeat "prompt...promptly"
at 20:29 - missing "Cracker" in the phrase "Cracker the ex-newspaper boy"
at 21:39 - a repeat "you know my fath...you know my brother Boniface"
at 22:00 - heard "push the guilty" but it should be "punish the guilty

The Outro should say "End of Chapter 21" and there needs to be 5 seconds of silence following that statement.

I started to PL Section 22; however after 5 instances in the first 3 minutes, I think it would be best for the reader to edit the file before it's PL'ed.

Section 23 was better, so here are the PL Notes for it.

At 03:22 - a stumble "Bith...Bethany"
At 05:40 - said "Jeannie" instead of "Jennie" which wouldn't have been noteworthy except that the very next sentence "Jennie" was used, and it's referencing the same person, so it seems as though it should be changed.
At 07:31 - a stumble "They ... the pretended"
At 14:06 - heard "he said gayly giving a Higby" it should be "and he gayly gave Higby"
At 17:29 - a repeat "Tom...said Tom"

The outro needs to match the first post and should be "End of Chapter 23" with 5 seconds of silence following that.

I also noticed a fair amount of flipping between using the name "Everest" (which is the name as written) and "Everett" in Chapter 23 - but didn't want to note every time that happened.

Hi!

I've updated the following sections by adding "End of Dedication" and "End of Chapter 3" followed by a 5 second pause.

Dedication (Section 00) - https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/princesssukey_00_saunders_128kb.mp3
and
Chapter 3 (Section 03) - https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/princesssukey_00_saunders_128kb.mp3

My reading of Chapter 4 is due today, and I have read/recorded it. However, I'm only halfway through editing the audio, so may I ask to have my deadline extended until the 28th (over the weekend)? Please? Please, Please, Please? :D

Thanks again.

Hi there! I saw this posted on the Listeners Wanted page. Is a PL still needed? If so, I can help out!

Thanks
Amon
I'm currently on summer holiday, so I have lots of time on my hands! If at any time you cannot find someone to PL a section, please PM me and I will be happy to help out! :wink:
