I listened to 15 and there are many deviations from the text.

With a screen reader I sometimes miss this stuff. Not a lot as far as I know but yes it happens.

Section 15

Did you submit an unedited file? It is an easy mistake to make.
There were a few instances that made me wonder what you were saying, but I let them go and differences in accent, but after the first error mentioned below, I started following along with the text. It is important we remain as faithful to the original as possible, although the occasional "he said" versus "said he" can be overlooked.

~8:10 I hear " restored me instantly to the full use of my facilities" S/B "restored me instantly to the full use of my faculties"
~10:43 Repeat "this is the age of realism"
~19:49 Repeat "I knew he would obey me"
~20:15 skipped line "concentrated all my faculties upon the difficulties of my position. My uncle must by this time have returned with Sir Hugh, and on"
~20:34 Repeated line "They could not easily force the door, nor, if they had any suspicion of the artist's insanity, would they be so rash as to try, but one blow would shatter the window and give them instant admission into the tower."
~22:15 unclear "indisputable axiom."
~23:05 I hear "sustained poem" S/B "stained poniard"
~23:50 I hear "Bulgaria or Mussolini" S/B"Borgia or Macchiavelli"
~24:00 I hear "taboo" S/B "tableau"
~24:35 I hear "i am accompanied" S/B"I am occupied"
~27:00 I hear "vanquish" S/B "vanish"
~27:25 I hear "Vasalini" S/B "Vasari" (this is the main character in the book, so the name has been mentioned multiple times and can't be changed in chapter 15)
~27:44 I hear " prompting that he had been freed of his own accord to the content " S/B 'purporting that he had fled of his own accord to the Continent."
28:28 Repeat "Yes; I would so arrange the affair"
~28:40 I hear "the Coven" S/B "The Continent"
~29:40 I hear "ordered his slave to be flattered" S/B "order one of his slaves to be fettered"
~30:10 stumble "mediocre"


There were very many other errors (many in pronunciation, which we do not usually correct e.g. "essel for 'easel'), tense (e.g. making verbs present tense when they should be past and vice versa) and skipping or substituting words, where the meaning wasn't changed, but there were enough of them to constitute a re-write.

The reader for sections 15 and 16 has withdrawn so we are looking for another reader. This is a very long chapter, but I would like one reader for both sections, to be split as the reader sees fit.
