It was a big project and I hope I'm not nitpicking if I mention that, between episodes of drifting off to sleep (as I do when I try to process a project as ambitious as this), I noticed in Section 3, at about 13:10, that there is a repeat of "while the branches at the edge of the clearing".

It seems this was noticed by the PL. Evidently it didn't get around to being corrected.

We accept there will be some errors and 1 repeat in over 9 hours in a project that took almost 5 years with changes in PLers and readers does not seem to me a major breakdown in the system. I'll probably fix it sometime when I have a spare moment but I'm not prepared to allocate blame after 5 years.

Of course, Anne. It was trivial.

I was actually looking for a way to thank the reader (or the first reader, as he's the only one I've heard so far) for having done such a good job. As it seems he's not around any more, I posted the error as a way really of drawing attention to the project :).

Anne,
I'm happy to fix as I have time available. I'll just wait for Barbara to finish listening so that only 1 fix is required.

Good idea, thanks Kim. I've just heard another repeat. It had also been picked up by a DPL. So I'll keep notes and PM you when I've listened to the end of the volume, shall I?

This reader is exceptionally enjoyable to listen to!

Best,

Barbara

Hi Kim, as suggested by you, I am posting this in the Error thread:

I have been listening so as to be lulled to sleep by the voice of the Irish reader. So I might have drifted off and missed some. Here are those I noticed:


Section 1
3:19 ish "the walls are of stone " etc repeat,
9:28ish "Drake and other early voyagers" repeat.

Section 3 13:10ish, that there is a repeat of "while the branches at the edge of the clearing".

Section 5 18:52ish repeat "The seaway was smooth - the sea was smooth

All the above had been marked for correction by the proof listener, along with other mistakes. These particular ones do not seem to have been corrected.

I didn't notice any mistakes from Section 6 on and I stopped listening when the golden-tonsilled nlonghu gave up the project.


Best,

Barbara
