Hello,

I’d like to claim section 2 - attention. Please put down my username for the reader section and you can link to my twitter page if possible, no worries if you can’t. Thanks!
Thank you for claiming! Someone else has already created your catalog page. You can find it here https://librivox.org/reader/13181

I'm done recording and editing my section however (and I've run into this problem before) I can't get the amplitude up. I try to amplify and as soon as I start messing with the settings it no longer allows me to hit ok and actually apply the changes. I know how to get there: Effect-Amplify (after selecting entire recording) and the top bar should be 5.0 in order to fall into target range 86-92dB but when I move the slider to get there the OK button turns light grey and does not allow me to select it.

Hiya, thats because some of your wave forms would go above the spectrum. You can only amplify until the highest waves (loudest sounds) reach the top of the spectrum in which you see your waves. If you do amplify more, these waves are cut off at the top, causing a loss of sound quality.

There are other tools you can use though! https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Audacity_Tutorials
Try out the leveler. It only amplifies the quieter bits of your recording so it doesn't cause clipping. Also have a look at removing peaks, after which you can use amplify again :)

Let us know if it works!

Chapter 3

Hi. I will be very happy if Carolin or somebody else gives me some comments about my reading. Not the sound quality. But the pronunciation for a not native speaker. Is there any pattern you notice in my reading? Or all wrong? I can not hear it myself. If you give me an advise I give my best to correct it by my next reading or if it is so bad I will reread this one again.

Thanks for you help.

Just one minor quibble, the opening silence should be less than 1s. Your pronunciation is fine. I appreciate your slower read speed. In content heavy books like this one, the brain needs a bit more time to digest what one is hearing.
