Hi! I was just curious did you not get chapter 24? I uploaded it. If there is a problem with it please let me know. Nancy
Section 24 is PL OK!

Here is chapter 4 of The Old Tobacco Shop.

Animated reading!
I do have a couple of PL notes for your chapter. The first is that you have to name your file: oldtobaccoshop_04_bowen_128kb

Your volume is at 94.7 which is well outside the acceptable range. Volume needs to be somewhere between 86-92, although a mid range, about 90, would be ideal. You must check your volume and other settings for each recording by using the Volume Checker (link: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker) before submitting your file.

Adjusting volume is within Audacity, on the left side. You'll see a mute button with a sliding scale below it. You can use that sliding scale to reduce your volume. In this case, you'll probably have to crank it down to -4 to get it within range. Again, you can check your volume with the Checker until you get it where you want it to be.

At the start of your recording, you'll need to reduce the space to .5 to 1 second. You have two seconds.

5:44 "put her head down on the arm of the table" should be "on her arm on the table"
8:48 missing phrase: "There must have been people above them, and they must certainly all have been boys"

Please make sure there are a full 5 seconds of silence at the end.

FYI: Checker is recommended as a tool, but not required. And there are other ways of checking volume 8-)

Hi, again. I'd like to claim chapters 19 and 20.

My screen name is from one of the stories read to my children quite often, "Too Many Daves" by Dr. Seuss. My kids are grown, so now I read to everyone and no one.

Thanks and have a great day! 8-)
Nicely read :thumbs:

A couple of notes:

You'll need to rename your file to: oldtobaccoshop_05_bowen_128kb

At the start, please reduce the silence to within .5 - 1.0 seconds
At 11:05, "so that he had to put his head on the floor" should be "hand on the floor"

A just FYI, there is no need to fill out the Metadata window that opens when you are saving a file. All of that info is overwritten when the book gets catalogued anyway.
