Here is Section 95. He was amazing! :shock:

sorry, nearly forgot this section. But yes, Paul Jones had an interesting life, quite dangerous. This was the longest section, I believe, so kudos for getting a PL ok right away. :thumbs: And I am thrilled to hear you didn't forget your "uncle Adam" Scottish for that special scene with the priest :lol: well done. Brought back nice memories.

Thank you, Jim

Here are the corrected versions.
If there is any more problems, please let me know so that I can improve it.
thank you for the corrections. So far I have listened to Section 73 and it's all PL ok now. Congrats on your first official section in the box :clap: The silence breaks are really much more comfortable to listen to now. :thumbs: And the missed sentence is perfectly patched in. I see you know your way around an editing program, which is helpful.

I will check on Section 86 tomorrow, it's a bit late here now. Need a fresh mind to listen to it. But I see it is over one minute less than last time, so you considerably cropped the breaks ;)

Speaking of length: please always write down the length of a section, so we can update the MW and check whether the upload passed in its entirety. :)

Thank you

Sonia
I am glad that I've been of any help and I will make sure to write the duration for future projects.
Btw, I have a question, is it okay if I put parts of my recordings or my future recordings at Librivox in my narration demo?

Thanks!

Parsa :P

of course you can, why wouldn't you ? :hmm: I'm sure lots of people put excerpts into their portfolio.

so now I also listened to the second section and the pauses in between are now really better :thumbs: good job there. And a clear narration again :)

I have found a few things to correct still. Since you are excellent at editing, I think this will not prove any trouble for you either:

> at 0:30: 1777 - please always include the date in the title, just like it's written in the book (or in the MW for that matter)

> at 0:54, at 1:24 and at 2:20: (p. 511) "the duke of Gloucester": this is optional, as usually we don't comment on pronunciations (you need to tell the DPL if you want pronunciation corrections on vocabulary), but I want to make you aware at least that the town of Gloucester is pronounced "Gloster", you can listen to it here: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/45/En-gloucester.ogg. Since this is an important historical figure, maybe you want to correct it

> at 2:14: (p. 512) "as a little less than miraculous" - I hear a word that shouldn't be there, maybe "time" ? :hmm:

> at 3:40: (p. 512) eight final lines missing of this page, from "he next opened his heart" till "adding however"

> at 7:36: (p. 515) between" passage" and "to her shores" there is a strange noise, which can easily be cut out to make it sound more fluent

> at 13:04: (p. 517) repeat: "a distant light guided them" - can be cut out once

thanks

oh, you say re-recorded, does that mean you re-recorded it all again ? Or only corrected the spots ? I need to know whether I should correct it all again or only the errors I listed.

Hello, I'm having a technical difficulty reading the text on my iPad - for some reason the book comes up as a black screen only... I will restart iPad and try again but thought you may have an idea? Thanks!

Linda,

I read Internet Archive texts on my ipad by going to Internet Archive and opening the file as a PDF. Once it comes up on the screen (it can be slow), I click on "Open in..." at the bottom and open it in the Ipad's Books app. After that it's in the Books library. I find it easier to manage resizing text and bookmarking that way.
