Carolyn,

Section 38 is lovely. At about 5.26 you have some extra text after the end of the chapter. Please delete that and upload your file again with an adjusted duration.

Thanks.
MaryAnn

Hi MaryAnn,

Thanks for letting me know! I hadn't noticed that I had left extra text at the end. Here is the edited version:

I hope that is better.

Hi MaryAnn,

In the recording I submitted, I used my full name, but now that I think about it, I would rather use my catalogue name/forum name in my recordings instead. I have created a new mp3 file in which I say my name as "Carolyn H". The length of the file is still 5:23, and nothing else has been changed. I have uploaded the new version to Librivox. I hope that is all right.

Here's my first recording!
Chapter 16, "The Robin's Home"
Sorry it took me longer than I expected. A few issues arose in my life - yikes!

Here's the link:
https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/mermaidsmessage_16_various_128kb.mp3
file duration: 06:25

I would appreciate feedback on the sound quality. I figured out how to use Audacity to clean up "hiss" using Noise Reduction. But to my ear there is a hollowness to the sound. I actually have used four different microphones and gone to three different areas of my house in an effort to get something that would sound more natural. Is it just me? Or is there an odd quality? If so, what tool in Audacity might I use to clear that? I really would like to not have to buy another microphone...

Please let me know if I have forgotten anything. Thanks for the feedback. I hope this is okay!

Betsy
