Re: pronunciation. Not withstanding the sensible guidelines about differing pronunciations, it's horrible and embarrassing to get names of people and places incorrect. With apologies to the Brits, some of the English names are not intuitive to the American. I'd welcome correction if need be e.g.
Hotham
Limehouse
Huddart

Now I'm more concerned with an inability to add the word "degrees" at 5:51 in Chapter 25. I've tried all kinds of things and thrown recordings in the trash but I keep getting the notice that it won't allow me to save changes because there already is a file by that name. To confuse the issue I had some typos in some of the file names I've initially used.

Sorry for the trouble.

As a Brit, I would say:
Hot-hm
Lime House (I know that one for a fact 8-) )
Hud (e)rt

It looks like section 49 is the orphan - RICHARD WATSON - and I'm happy to do it. I will read it by the weekend and submit for review. As I'm fairly new I'm happy to do it over if upon review it's not up to standard.

Thank you for claiming. Just follow any advice you were given when you did your test, and it is unlikely your file will be unsalvageable :mrgreen:

The "degrees" is clearly audible. I did not find any incorrect pronunciation. Sounds in accordance with Lynne's guidance. Apart from the missing intro, all else is PL OK.
Thanks for these wonderful recordings! :D

Mr. Smith's biography ~ chapter 41

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/menofscience_41_walker_128kb.mp3

13:58.01
Chapter 41: William Smith
I can hear some noise in the beginning, clearly audible in the initial silence. (simple noise removal may help)
Everything else sounds great!
Tidied up a bit with noise reduction, particularly in first section:
