Hello,

Can I claim section 7 please?

First time reader, I've passed the one minute test, could I be credited as Gary Conway?

Many thanks

Gary
Hi,

I'm sorry for the delay. I've just uploaded section 7, it's 33 minutes 18 seconds long -

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/olivercromwell_07_firth_128kb.mp3

It sounds OK to me, but then this is my first recording! I'm happy to re-do if it's hopeless.

All the best

Gary

Thank you. That's quite a hefty recording for a first attempt :thumbs:
I will try and listen today. It is rare that a recording is so bad it can't be salvaged (but not totally unheard of, I'm afraid :? ). Please check back to see if there are any edits needed. In the meantime, feel free to claim more sections -- in this or any other project that grabs your attention.

Section 7 notes
~2:25 stumble "lieutenant...lieutenant general"
~2:50 stumble "that though... that though he said"
~4:02 stumbles "brigade... brigade of cavalry Cromwell had brought back from the w..west"
~6:33 stumble "in Wo...Worcestershire"
~7:49 stumble "London peti... petitioned"
~8:40 repeat "we owe you... we owe to you"
~14:50 stumble "near Lang... Langport"
~17:21 stumble "and the other half surrendered ...s...after a short bombardment. "
~18:56 stumble "many stie...sieges"
~19:44 stumble "clapped their scee... their scaling ladders"
~20:35 repeat "since defeat... since his defeat at Naseby"
~24:47 stumble "speedily res...restored confidence"
~25:18 repeat "the letters taken... taken at Naseby"
~30:36 stumble "Cromwell has given to the Mal... Malignants of Oxford
~31:31 stumble "General... Lieutenant General"

This looks a lot, but they are all simple fixes and stumbles and repeats are easily cut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLdJsoGQc9c (and you don't need to patch in corrections, as you caught yourself each time :thumbs: ) I suggest you begin at the end and work backwards, to keep the times correct (just a little 'pro' tip... the voice of experience)

Your reading style is excellent and there are no technical issues to be concerned about.

If you could do these edits ASAP and re-upload using the same file name, that would be great :thumbs:
