Hello Owlivia,
Just wanted to let you know that Section 1 is PL Okay. For Section 13, please review the narrative between 11:51 and 12:11. First there is a bit of skipped text, then that part is added in later. Thank you for taking a look. I'll check back--and I will try to PL your other sections as soon as possible. You've done a great job! :D

With thanks,
Lora

Hi Hertzm,
You did a nice recording of Section 27--thanks! Please review/re-edit beginning at 1:28. A noise occurred and then part of the text was omitted between "I caught up...smiled at me. I appreciate your review and will check in again soon.

To StJohn,
Welcome to LibriVox and congrats on recording your first section. The volume is 85.8 (I used the Checker program)--maybe Stav can comment to see if that is within an acceptable range. It might be a bit low. There was some variation in the reading volume, but since I could hear it okay I don't think you'll have to change it. I am going to list my notes so that the text is as accurate as possible. As you gain more experience, I am sure there won't be as many notes. Please let me know if you have any questions.
--at 1:30 please remove "of" in the phrase "penalty a great artist"
--at 3:33 "impression" should be "impressionism"
--at 3:50 please add "parent" to "part parent of symbolism"
--at 5:54 "successive" should be "successful"
--at 6:46 "picture" should be "portraiture"
--at 9:48 "metaphysical" should be "metaphysical"
--at 10:43 please insert "reading" between "audible" and "thereof"
--at 11:23 "stuttering" should be "struttings"
--at 16:02 "world" should be "word"
--at 22:39 "portrait" should be "portraitist"
--at 26:49 please add "spirals" in the phrase "while the spirals spin"
--at 27:45 "movement" should be "moments"
--at 27:52 please smooth out the phrase "He is not all frosty intellect"
--at 29:52 please add "remoter" so the phrase reads "remoter harmonic perspectives"
Please shorten the ending silence to 5 seconds.

Thank you,
Lora

Sorry--at 9:48 above, it should be "metaphysican." Thanks, Lora

Hi Dyla,
Wow! What a great recording of a long section, full of names and lists! Here are my PL notes; hopefully they will not take long to fix.
--at:12, please include the book title, author, chapter number and name (those instructions are listed in the project information)
--at 10:29 there is a sentence missing (Maurice Barres is another..." between the words "Boutrox" and "once..."
--at 11:51 add the name "Samain" between Renard and Saint-Georges
--15:37 please omit the repetition of the phrase "dwellers on the threshold of the future..."

Thank you. I hope you plan to record more in the future!
Lora

To Owlivia,
Thank you so much for your contributions to the project; I especially enjoyed your recording of Chapter 22! Please check at 18:42; my text has the phrase, "passing masterpiece after masterpiece" between the words "gum-chewing" and "only.

Chapter 23 is PL Okay.

I believe it was Mark Twain who said, "I can live for months on a good compliment." :)
