Constructive criticism is always welcome. Do I need to slow down? How's my enunciation? Did I stumble, or pause too long? Please let me know!

Thanks for your recording, mcdobe100! I am so sorry for the delay in proof-listening; I don't know how I missed your post. Your narration is awesome! Below are my PL notes:

05:08 Stumble ("fierce beasts")
06:27 Repeat ("pours forth . . . forth")
14:07-14:12 Background noise during pause before next chapter
14:26 Stumble ("to benefit")
26:54 Stumble ("to im . . . impose")

Please edit and re-upload. Include the new file duration when you post in the thread. Thanks so much.

18 and 19 are ready for PL! 20 and 21 are coming soon :)

Section 18 length: 17:25
MP3 link: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/onbenefits_18_seneca_128kb.mp3


Section 19 length: 25:19
MP3 link: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/onbenefits_19_seneca_128kb.mp3


Greetings,
Section 18 PL notes:
05:33 Repeat ("Sup . . . suppose that a man")
09:33 Repeat ("Even though we . . . we count")
14:45 Repeat ("sheltered by the . . . by the thick foliage")

The volume of Section 18 is also too low at 86.5 dB (87-91 dB acceptable). To adjust the volume in Audacity, select the whole recording. Click Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number +2.5 dB. Verify that the file is around 89 dB using Checker.

Section 19 PL notes:
10:13 Repeat ("these persons are all . . . are all held")
18:13 Repeat ("among the . . . the crowd")

Volume OK.
