Here come sections 31 and 32. I did my best with the pronunciation, and I tried some audio improvement in Audacity. Please let me know where these could be better. Thanks!

Wonderfully done, Geoffrey! Section 31 has a repeat at 21:31 ("with perhaps a" x2). Also, the recording is too loud at 92.5 dB. We aim for about 89 dB, with an acceptable range of 87-91 dB. To adjust the volume in Audacity, select the whole recording. Click Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number -3.5 dB. Verify that the file is around 89 dB using Checker.

Section 31 has a repeat at 13:20 ("a . . . adopted"). Also, there is a stumble at 32:28 ("with . . . which with").

Please edit and re-upload for spot PL. Thanks!

Sorry for the slow turnaround on this one. Here's section 44 (37:48).

I didn't figure out how to check my dB level in Audacity, but I think the waveform looks alright here. I have a feeling I'll need to do some of it again. :|

I have 45 recorded; just need to edit. I'll have it up early this week.

Thank you, Geoffrey! The turnaround was just fine. :) You can check the dB level directly in Audacity by using the ReplayGain effect:

https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Measuring_Volume_within_Audacity

It will tell you the average volume relative to 89 dB in the Analyze mode and adjust it to 89 dB in the Normalize mode. You can also check the volume of you mp3 (and our other tech specs) using Checker:

https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker

Let me know if you have questions. :)

Hmm, this is the same length as before. The PL notes were: "Could you please cut the silence at the beginning of the file so that it is less than 1 (currently 1.5 seconds), as well as the silence at the end of the file so that it is about 5 (currently 10 seconds)?" This suggests we would expect the new recording to be a few seconds shorter. Are there other changes cancelling out this change that we need to spot PL?

Oh bollox. I forgot to cut the bit at the end.
I'll try to get it to you tomorrow!
Sorry about that.
