All of your recordings to date are PL OK --- EXCEPT 84 (83.7 dB) and 85 (81.7 dB) which are too low in volume.
Our target is 89 dB with a range of 86-92 dB.

Time for me to try to catch up.

Gosh, I love these poems. (Even this translation. You all should read Rexroth!)

In truth, the poems ought to be surrounded front and back in more silence, but the reader can arrange these recordings as he or she wishes.

These are all PL OK --- EXCEPT for 113,114,115 where you say the translator's name as W. G. B. Fletcher instead of W. J. B. Fletcher

This is the kind of thing I so easily do, and I'm surprised I even heard this, but probably is worth fixing. Hey, I didn't invent the English language. :lol:

Hahaha! I caught myself doing this and corrected it. I thought it was what I think they call a 'one time deal.' I made a habit of it!

I'll fix pronto.
E agora, José?

silverquill, I have raised Section 23's volume and marked it as PL OK. We have not heard from skip and I don't object to making a modification as simple as this one for someone else's submission. I hope we hear from other's whose sections need attention. I would hate to have to remove them, but it will be nice to get this collection cataloged soon. As an aside, it's so nice to see such a wide range of readers for this project.

Yes, it's fine to make those adjustments, and we do them from time-to-time.

I'll make getting my new sections done a priority, and getting up-to-date with the PL.

These types of projects do attract a wide range of readers, and I like doing them.
Pleased at how well the Aesop's Fables is doing, and the new readers that are coming on board.

Lynda,
I've done the Spot PL on your files, and they are now all PL OK. :thumbs:
Thanks.
