20 The Sand Bed - The House That Jack Built

https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/keepwellstories_20_farinholtjones_128kb.mp3
4:18


Quite fun little reads.
I found a missed edit in the Sand Bed poem - at about 1:07 the line "The yard holds in the lively hens" is repeated.

Other than that everything is OK. I'll mark this section 'see pl notes' for now.

I'm so glad that most of the diseases listed in your previous chapter have been almost eliminated. Maybe this 'hygiene' stuff does work!

I always feel bad when I miss something so obvious as a repeated phrase when I am cleaning up the file. But, it gives you something to say other than PL ok. It is fun to read things of a different era. You can get such a different perspective on almost anything.

That was fast! OK, I'll say something different: Spot PL OK.
The new time is noted in the magic window.

Thanks for the two chapters.

Thank you! Excited to get started as this is my first recording. I think I will go with my nickname which is Lily, and playing around with a "stage" last name which is Ellis!
Nice! So Lily Ellis, then?
Yes, I will go with Lily Ellis! Here is the link to my recording: https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/keepwellstories_19_farinholtjones_128kb.mp3

Jenn -
I found one missing word - at around 2:16 I hear:
I do not cry for things Mother Nature tells me are good for me
The text reads:
I do not cry for things Mother Nature tells me are not good for me

If you want to go with the chapter as-is let me know and I'll OK it. For now, though, it'll be See PL Notes.

Oh no! At the very end you read "End of Keep-Well Stories for Little Folks, by May Farinholt-Jones" - which is only to be read at the end of section 23 of this book. You should easily be able to edit that out of your recording and upload your new version. At that point it should be PL OK (after a spot PL).

There is a fair amount of very low frequency noise in your recording. If you watch the playback audio meter in Audacity you can see the level never goes below something around -40 even when you are not speaking. If you wish to do so, this noise can be mostly cleaned up with Audacity's Noise Reduction effect. The noise you are getting is mostly below the range of my headphones (and ears!), so it's not affecting the legibility of your recording. Since it's not making it hard to hear your voice even if you don't want to run the noise reduction effect your recording will easily pass proof listening once you remove the unwanted closing sentence.

Your chapter is marked See PL Notes for now.

Oh thank you so much. I will take these notes and work on them!

Somewhere in the processing you've done your audio has gotten clipped - you can hear this as a harsh sound in the loud syllables in the reading. (You can see this in the waveform as well - pick a loud spot and click the magnifying-glass-with-a-plus icon several times. The tops and bottoms of the waveform you'll see are squared off and not nice rounded sine waves.)

The overall level is too loud as well. "Checker" reports a volume at 94 dB when it should be in the 86 - 92 dB range. Just reducing the volume at this point will not get rid of the clipping distortion, alas.

Is it possible for you to go back to the version you first uploaded - which didn't have the clipping distortion - and just delete the "End of Keep-Well Stories for Little Folks, by May Farinholt-Jones" at the end of the reading and upload that? If you didn't save the first version you uploaded I have a saved copy of it on my computer. If need be I could make the edit for you and upload it. Let me know. (Everything in the first recording is word-for-word perfect except for the extra closing bit.)
