Pl status for sections 54, 58 & 59 & 67

Section 54, please ensure that your future recordings are from .5-1.0 of silence at the beginning and 5.0 of silence at the end. This section could use .5 second more silence at the beginning and less 1 second at the end.
Also, please put this line at 2:34 "this recording is in the public domain". That will need to be put in at the end of each poem in this thread. Thank you.

54, 58 & 67 are pl okay.

Both of you do have wonderful voices, thinking I could listen to your recordings and wishing my voice could be just as well spoken.

Hi April,

thanks for your feedback! I realized that I forgot the public domain disclaimer in all my solo readings :oops: Or at least in #70 and #71 at least. I already changed them as well but will wait with uploading in case there are some more changes to be made :wink:

Also I noticed that I was saying the title of #52 wrong at the end, so apart from adding the public domain disclaimer, I corrected the end title as well. Finally, I improved #54 according to your notes.

I do intend to get your corrected files pl'ed today. Thank you for the quick turn around. You do know that at the end of the recording, prior to saying "this recording is in the public domain" you do not have to say the poem's title?
Just saying " end of poem" is sufficient. Followed by this "poem is in the public domain" and than 5 seconds of silence.

section 71 edits:
1:57 please delete and record again the word height.
The pronunciation of height is said like so: hight with a silent e.

4:50 the word read is hollowed which is a different word than the one in the text which is hallowed. Please replace the one recorded with the text word.

5:14.5 insert "this recording is in the public domain"

:D

2:10 please put in "this recording is in the public domain" & ensure there is the 5 seconds of silence at the end.

section 75 is pl okay & kudos to Adrian for the deep voice, perfect voice in my estimation for an armored skeleton (which I thankfully wouldn't and shouldn't know just how that would sound.) Well done!!

Sonia, I did notice you did not include the footnote showing "suggested by an armor clad skeleton dug up at Fall river and in the ballad connected with the old Roman tower at Newport" at the end of the first page. It has me thinking to look into that. Intrigues me....
Nothing you believe needs to be in that piece of audio?

dpl notes for sections 83 & 102

83 is pl okay just as soon as the beginning silence is put in, 05-1.0 please of silence.
102 is wonderful. No text errors at all, the ending statements and 5 seconds of silence are perfect! The 3 voices complement one another beautifully. Great job!!!

hmm good question, indeed. Thank you for being so vigilant April. :thumbs:

@Tomas: I cannot remember whether we included the footnote or explanations like this in the other projects. Should I include it or not ? Do you have a preference ? Will wait for your answer, I don't mind putting it in if you prefer.

#83 is marked as PL ok and #102 as see PL notes in the MW but it should be the other way around, right? :hmm:

Kate,
Evidently upon my looking at those 2 files again there is an error that I did not catch.
Section 83 is pl okay.
Section 102 has the file named with 101 & not 102. Change that and put some silence in at the start so than it will be pl okay.

Hi Sonia,

I think I remember recording such footnotes when I came across them---I think we should include it, to be as complete as possible. Perhaps after saying the title the second time, but before starting the poem.

I had a look at this, April and in fact the number for Section 101 is correct. The section got moved by mistake from the 101 slot to the 102 slot. I changed them back now and now they are in order. Such things can happen when someone toggles in the MW and all of a sudden a section is dragged and dropped a bit higher or lower in the lines. ;) But I checked with the book and this is the correct order the poems appear in.

I will include the footnote into the Skeleton in Armour though, so I will mark this one as having PL notes still to remember.

ok will do so. I hope I didn't forget any other footnotes. Luckily April is so vigilant.

Regarding footnotes in the Canterbury Tales, they are explanations of Middle English words. I definitely didn't think to include those as the constant interruptions would make tedious listening. Do you agree we can leave those out at least ?
