Please say if you think this reading is not good enough as I know I'm not pronouncing as well as usual, due to my condition. I would be quite happy to re-do it or even just some of it. I think it gets better over the five days in which I recorded it.

Thanks Lynne - I'm not doing too badly - walked 6 miles yesterday. Hope further repair work does not knock me back.

Section 1 "The Resident Patient" PL OK
Sounds good Peter! It does improve a little over the reading, but it is perfectly clear, and of course well read.
Glad your back :clap:

Many thanks Cheryl. I have another Conan Doyle more than half recorded. The more I'm using my voice the sooner it will hopefully become more controllable. It's strange to be having to re-learn how to speak properly. One of the problems is that it has made my left eye pretty useless so I have more difficulty in reading the scripts. I have to print out in 14 or 15 point bold letters to be able to read it. I suppose I am paying for my past sins ... I think the eye will be fine in a few weeks - hopefully.
