Hi... seasons greetings! I’m pleased you marked this PL OK... in general, we recommend breathing ... and listeners have commented they like the occasional breath sounds as it makes it sound more like they are in the same room as the reader. Of course, heavy breathing can be disconcerting, and if you have a head cold it can be difficult to understand.schrm wrote: ↑December 26th, 2018, 10:58 am
chapter 4: about 5 times you breathe directly into the microphone, and sometimes, you can hear some distant honking cars (but only with my best headphones on ). that is all what i noticed, besides: it is wonderful, how lively, how emphasizing you are reading. wonderfully read chapter 4 is pl ok!
In the same vein, slight background noise (traffic, dogs, birds etc.) are fine provided they don’t interfere with the clarity of the reading.
