PL Note for section 12:

Recording is missing "This recording is in the public domain" at the end. Otherwise, great reading as usual, Larry! :)

Huzzah!! First one done!
Question: how much time should be left at the beginning of the recording before audio begins? I feel like I read a couple different time requirements. Also, how much time between the intro and the main text body should there be? Thx!

Congratulations on your first submitted section! Thanks for your file. There should be ~0.5 sec at the beginning of the file. Between the intro and the main text just a short pause like you would put between sentences. Our DPL, silverquill will PL your file. He will let you know if any changes are needed. :)

Congratulations! This is a very nice reading of this chapter. :)

You will need to make some changes in the silent spaces, however. You have nearly 5 seconds at the beginning, and it needs to be less than one second. The ending is fine, where we like to have about five seconds.

I would also suggest shortening the gap between your intro and the beginning of the reading. It sounds more natural to the listener if it is somewhere between 1-2 seconds. I don't actually measure this, but just judge it on what sounds natural for what I'm recording. The same is true at the end. The space between the end of the reading and your "outro" is too long. Again, around 1 to 1 1/2 seconds seems natural to me.

Just upload your modified file under the same file name and post your link and new file length here again.

Anyway, you are off to a wonderful start and I hope we'll hear a lot more of you voice and fine reading here on LibriVox!

Hi, Kevin!
Section 3 is PL OK
Section 4, in the intro I hear, "Read by LibriVox.org, instead of "for." Picky, I know, but it sounded funny. :lol:

I get so confused between the short and long disclaimers that I have to write them down and have them in front of me. Even then I get it wrong!
