Hi Carolin,

Here is my first attempt at Section 12, Peach-Prince and the Demons. I did noise reduction and I think my settings are okay. I used the volume checker you referred me to and got it to 85 dB, I forget what the range is but I thought it ended at 89. Let me know what else I should do to make this better! This project is really coming along!

Hello. I finished my last chapter and if Section 7 THE HUNGRY CHICKS is still available, I can do that one.

Hi Robin - your recording is very good! The only thing I need you to fix is we need about 5 seconds of silence at the end and you only have 3 seconds. If you can add another couple of seconds onto the end and re-submit it will then be PL-OK!

Thank you!
Hi there!

There is a small problem with your recording - you are missing the introduction. The recording starts with the reading of the story.... Please insert the introduction as laid out below and then re-upload so I can check your recording out in full.

thank you malini!

i have signed you up, your personal catalog page is here: https://librivox.org/reader/12887 :)

have fun with the story and please let us know if you have any questions!
Hi Carolin,
Thanks A lot for setting up my catalogue. A minor correction: It will be great if you could change the pseudonym to "MaliniSarovar" instead of "malinisarovar"?

I have completed the recording for Chapter 18. I am looking for feedback that will help me improve my "accent" to minimize the effect of my native accent. I am in an exercise to be able to handle multiple accents.

Also, I would love to hear how I can improve my tone and the general delivery of the story.

Thanks A Lot
Malini
Hi Malini! I have just listened to your recording and it is very good! You speak very well at a good pace which people can understand. You mention that you are working on exercises that will help with your accent which is good and will make some of the words easier to understand. I am used to hearing people whose English is their second or third language and I understood your recording just fine!

There is one thing I need you to do and re-submit the recording and that is to take 2 seconds off the beginning of the recording. We like to see around 1 second at the beginning and 5 seconds at the end. The end of your recording is just fine :) Just clip 2 seconds from the start, save the recording with the same name and upload it with the time and I will check and approve the recording.

Keep working on doing more recordings - you are off to a great start!

hi Carolin
i have uploaded section 32. hope it is ok.

thanks
Hi there!

Good recording - only thing you need to do is add some more blank space at the end of the recording so that it is 5 seconds. Right now you are at just under 3 seconds. Then save the recording with the same file name, upload it and paste the link plus the time into this forum.
