Sigh . . . although my surname is French I struggle mightily trying to pronounce it. [snip]

If you can direct me to a capable website to help clutsy American monoglots it would be MOST appreciated.
I can direct you to this recording Tom :wink:
https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/backontopic.mp3

It's a bit muffled, but I hope you understand. I read it in normal speed and slowed down word-by-word.
Hope this helps!
Many thanks for the quite understandable and helpful pronunciation guide for that, to me, challenging bit of French. I would love to have an equally helpful (and patient) online resource for French words when I come across them.

So, here is my attempt to apply your pronunciation guidance, duration is 19mm28ss:

Can I claim Section 5?
Hi there and welcome to LV and to this project! :D

I have pencilled you in for section 5 (great choice!), but please do your test before you start recording "for real". It's more of a soundcheck, really, to make sure your equipment can handle all the recording you're going to do here. :mrgreen:

Your welcome mail has more info about the 1-Minute-Test. Please post it over in "Listeners and Editors Wanted" and get back to me once you have your [OK]. I'll hold your section for a month to do that.

While you're busy with your test, you can also think of a catalog name; if you're going to say a name in your recordings, that's a good choice (so that your fans can find you), but it can be pretty much anything, really.

Anyway, test first, and then: Have fun!
Cheers, Ava.

Great reading voice! I really enjoyed it Donovan!
Only 1 note, at the very end - the outro. I hear "end section 5" and it goes as "end OF section 5". You're missing the "of", please add it it, and post it again!

Best,
Ana :mrgreen:

Section 11 is done

https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/flowersfreethought2_11_foote_128kb.mp3

9min 10secs

Hello there! You sound very nice! I enjoyed it!
Only a few things, before it's good to go.

There is a very long pause form 0:24 - 0:27, please edit out at least 2 seconds here.

And two optional things:
4:18 and 4:58 - At these 2 spots, the text goes "Mr." and I hear "Dr."

And the Note at the beginning (0:24) and the outro (8:58) are a bit quieter than the rest, just in case you would like to play with the amplifier at Audacity.

Please address these and send it in again :)

Best,
