Hi Kevin,

A slight confusion here. I had nominated for Chapter 6, and received a confirmation from your end as well. It seems that this chapter has been allocated to another reader as well? Kindly confirm and suggest options please.

I'm sorry for this, but I never heard back from you regarding your choice for a display name. I thought you had changed your mind.

If you'd like to do a chapter for this project, I'll see if Chapter 17 is free. That reader has been having a lot of technical trouble. You'll have to choose a display name, of course.
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

Do you want Chapter 17?

Hi Kevin,

I'm fine with Chapter 17. As for the display name, I'll go with Sid Bhatia. Do I have to edit and enter the Display name someplace?

Regards,
Sid

I have completed the PL for Chapter 11, The Sports. Please correct the issues identified below and upload again. Thanks.

- at 0:17, the title sounds like the "s" at the end was an afterthought i.e., "sport s", please correct to "sports"

- at 2:30, there is a repeat of "sea", please remove the first one as it sounds like seal

- at 3:08, there is a repeat of "and" in tell you all about it and see"

- at 3:58, please add the word "him" after "listening to"

- at 4:18, there is a repeat of "look", please delete the first occurrence in "what you've got to do is look, to look normal"

- at 4:25, please add the word "less" before "like" in the sentence, "Can't you make yourself look like a convicted forger"

- at 5:18, the word "in" is lost between the terms "known" and "criminal", can you either increase the volume of the word or redo it, sounds like "William, also known criminal circles"

- at 9:03, you have "reason why you are not running in 'that race' thirteen hundred the under thirteen hundred, mistake the under thirteen hundred", please remove "thirteen hundred the under thirteen hundred, mistake" from the recording; the word "are" above could be changed to "were" to match the text, but this latter changes is not necessary

- at 9:18 please remove all text up to 9:24, it is "Welch won the hundred by two hundred yards mistake Welch won the two hundred mistake"

- at 9:38, please shorten the pause for consistency

- at 13:26, please remove the first "quick" from "drake had quick quickened his pace"

- at 14:23 please delete the first "to the" in "to the on to the turf"

Thanks,

M

I have completed the review of Chapter 14, The Long Run. Please address the issues identified below. Thanks.

- want .5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning

- there are frequent background thumps and some squeaks that should be removed, these are at approximately: 1:21, 2:16, 3:11, 6:45, 8:11, 8:30, 9:46, 9:47, 9:59, 10:10, 10:21, and 10:22

- there is a long sequence of background noise from 6:13-6:47

- it would also be nice if you could remove the loud breathing noises throughout

- at 5:16, please remove "first" before the word "pace"

- at 7:57, please remove the word "slowly" before the word "vanish", this isn't a critical addition to the sentence but
consider pulling it

- at 9:04, please replace "in fact" with "a fact"

- at 10:03, please add "the last" in front of "I saw of it"

- there are 4.5 seconds at the end, it is close to the 5 wanted, but you could add another half second of silence

- volume is too low, please amplify by at least 2 dB

Thanks,

M

I also just noticed that there is an extra underscore "_" before the 14 in the file name. Please correct. Thanks

Okay! All set!
A few small corrections to the recording need to be done.

5:46 - there is a thumping sound, please delete
6:06 - slight stutter on the word "burglar", sounds like "blu burglar" in "work of a professional burglar", please remove that"blu" sound
12:02 - the word "imprint" is repeated in "imprint of the palm of a hand, please delete the first occurrence
14:20, 14:21 - there is a slight clicking noise, could you please remove

While you have some extra pauses in the middle of phrases, there are three that were a little too lengthy at 7:55, 8:53, and 9:28, could you please shorten them.

Thanks,

M

Nice job on the recording and it is also fun to listen to. Just one comment. The silence at the end is a little too long. Could you please shorten it so that is around 5 seconds.

Thanks,

M
