I want to claim Section 6 (The Modern Woman) and section 7 (Watts and the Method of Art)

Hi Silverquill,

Here's my one minute test:
https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_yashsrivastava.mp3

It was recorded using Reaper on Windows with an analogue mic.
I've posted it on the forum to be OKayed.

I would like to be credited using my real name: Yash Srivastava
Good. So I have added you to the LV catalog and assigned these two sections for you.

I took a quick listen to your test recording, but you should get a better report on the forum.

The main issue is that the volume is very much too low, at only 76.8 dB, which is barely audible.
Our LV target is 89 dB with and acceptable range of 86-92 dB.

Then, on an actual recording we need just about 5 seconds of silence at the end.

On the suggestion side, I would recommend less of a monotone style with a little more expression in you voice instead of the kind of droning that I hear. We all have different reading styles, but remember that all the listener hears is your voice and you want to engage their interest and sound more lively if you can.

Thanks for your interest,
Larry

just one PL note for Section 3--

at 20:21, the phrase "we have our conversation" is missing from the recording.

Section 2 for PL:

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/essaysirishandamerican_02_yeats_128kb.mp3 (20:07).
just one small PL note at 1:27-- the sound drops out on "he" of "He pronounced it..."
other than that it's a very nice reading!
