Constructive criticism is always welcome. Do I need to slow down? How's my enunciation? Did I stumble, or pause too long? Please let me know!

Here's my last one.

PL OK :thumbs:

As a side- I had noticed that checker read background noise at 47.5 dB but gave no warning. That alerted me to listen for whatever it may have picked up, but heard nothing till I turned the volume to an uncomfortable height (which the common listener won't do). There's somewhat of a hum as from an electronic gadget (I'm terrible at identifying sounds!), so I don't know if it's avoidable or not. Either way, it's mostly checker that'll notice. :wink:

Section 27 -

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/livinganimals1_27_cornish_128kb.mp3

Time: 10:10
Reading is good, but end silence is just a little long at 6.6 seconds. If you could trim that and repost, this one should be good to go! :thumbs:

Thanks,
~Rosebud

I hate doing this to you, but I just realized you've got some extra content in this section. While PLing Section 27, I kept having the feeling of having heard it before, so I checked the last part of 26 to see if that's where it had been. Sure enough, from ~18:14 on belongs to Section 27, so I'll need that part cropped. So sorry for not catching it earlier! I guess I should have a print out with sections marked. 8-)

Sorry, and thanks!
