This may be PL OK.

At the end you do say
"End of [Chapter ] Part [number] "
but then you also say end of section 36.

Kikisaulite is this ok? There are no other changes needed.

End of Chapter xxx, part xxx is quite enough. Please cut out the "end of section 36". Thank you!
Linny, thanks for PLing!

:oops: So sorry to have missed your post... thank you for reminding me!

Normally one would post a one-minute-test in the "Listeners and editors wanted" forum, but I did listen to it, so here are some first comments:
The bit rate should be 128 kbps;
The recording should be in mono sound, not stereo sound;
The recording should use a constant bit rate rather than variable bit rate (VBR).
Other than that, I think that the sounding (it has a bit hollow sound sometimes now) of the actual recording could be quite improved by trying different mic placement or some such trick. I am bad at all those technical things myself, so could you please post your test with correct technical settings in the "Listeners and editors wanted" forum? All those clever technical people hang out there and someone will sure have same very valuable ideas for you!
