Thank you for claiming. This is a very long chapter, so I am asking you to break it into two files (15 and 16) of roughly equal length. The break can come wherever seems logical to you. Treat them as two distinct sections. Ask if you're unsure.

I have added you to the catalog of readers using your forum name, but I can change that if you'd prefer your real name.

Please be sure to read the first post, as all the information you need is there, but do ask if anything isn't clear.

The Weered Picture Chapter 12

About one minute, stumble: "the first meeting after… Afte rher refusal of him".
Between 15 to 25 minutes into the chapter- in too many sentences the silence is too long. Sometimes, it distracts from the listening. Please note that, as a rule of thum, a brake should not be more than two or three seconds. I don't know why in these proticular ten minutes and not before or after.
Are those issues enough to need re-doing? I've just gotten swamped at work and it may take a while if 'yes'.

I'll also keep the issues in mind as I record Chapter 13
BTW, if someone wants to record Chapter 13, feel free - I will do it by mid April if 'no'.

Stepping in here...
I have orphaned section 13 as mid April will take us past the 2 month deadline. If no one claims, you can always reclaim when time permits.
As for section 12... DO NOT RE-RECORD!!! These fixes are quick and easy (if necessary, I could do them for you, although usually it is the reader’s responsibility) . Just highlighting the offending sections in your Audacity file and use the scissor tool. Then reupload using the file name. Apart from the stumble, you don’t even have to listen to the file. Just look to see where the gaps are 8-)

ah, ok, I can shorten the silences between 15 and 25 minutes. I'll try to get to that today.

Thank you Samhita for taking chapter 13!

11 and 12 are pl-ok. I listened a while ago but didn't post. Wow this was smart...

Thank you for checking in. It is important that both sections are read by the same reader, so I have extended your deadline til the end of June.
