Just for Chapter 1, I added to the Intro what you see in red below, taken from the Title page on the Gutenberg facsimile page: For future chapters, I omitted the red. And we could omit Tom Sawyer's Comrade from future chapters, too but I'm thinking it should at least go on the title page and first chapter.
This sounds good to me :)
I would appreciate if you'd PL OK (or not OK) this file before I upload any more. Thanks!
PL OK! It sounds great! :thumbs:

Thank you!

I'd like to also claim Judge Thatcher & Ab Turner.
It looks like the Judges lines are all in Chap 4 in the one exchange with Huck.
Ab appears in the trial scene and all his lines are delivered in tandem with his pard, 'both of them' speaking. Have I got all the bits here?
If so I'd like to claim sections 76 and 77, Judge Thatcher/ Ab Turner.

That's right.
Ab appears in the trial scene and all his lines are delivered in tandem with his pard, 'both of them' speaking.
Chapter 29 is one of the chapters I had a hard time with, since there's a whole crowd and lots of group lines and lots of the time you can't tell who's talking ;)
Please read all the lines in dark blue. Three lines will be read by a few people and layered together (well there's more, but you're only in three of them):
"We didn't see no such mark."
"Hooray!"
"We'll do it!"

Then there are a couple lines that are split up (they are too long to layer and it would be too hard to understand what was being said). So please just record the parts of them that are in dark blue:
"No, we didn't. We never seen any marks at all."
"The whole bilin' of 'm 's frauds! Le's duck 'em! le's drown 'em! le's ride 'em on a rail!"

Does that make sense? :D
Thanks for claiming!

It sure does, though I see them in bold and black, the lines are clear.

I'll get on it right away, chief.

Huck's Chapter 2 is uploaded, ready for PL. Only . . . . if you or anyone can advise me how to get rid of the "recorded in a cave" sound throughout the file beginning at :30, bypassing the intro, I don't know how I got it to begin with. My other files don't have it. :?

Huck Finn for chapter 2 is PL OK!
This file doesn't sound any different than chapter 1 to me... :hmm: I have heard chapters that sound sort of like they've been "recorded in a cave" but this doesn't really sound like that to me :)
Thanks!
