Thank you Hannah - excellent job on the corrections.
There is still one error at :22 where you give the dates. His date of death should be 1885, not 1825 (which makes him 3 years of age!) :lol:

I would like to read section 7 and 23. This is my first recording. My name: Joseph Steele Sr. is fine to use for references to me as the reader.

Okay. I've left some remarks on you one-minute test. There are a few issues to iron out.
I'll save these sections for you while you work on that.
Look forward to having you join this project. :thumbs:

Here's my recording for Chapter 1: https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_01_gordy_128kb.mp3 (22:12)
Nice reading of chapter 1.
A couple of notes:
At 5:43, I heard .....leading by the hand hid little son Diego should be his little son Diego
At 20:18, I heard...he laded on an island should be landed on an island

At the beginning of the recording, I noticed you are at the top limit of space at 1 second. I try to shoot for around a half second.

Have you competed your one-minute test recording?

Read about it in our Newbie Guide to Recording.
I'll save this section for you, but post here again when you have the "OK" on your test, and let me know ho you would like to be listed in our catalog -- real name, pseudonym or other nickname.

Hi, again.

Well I found your test recording. Unfortunately the newbie who left you the first comment really didn't know how to evaluate it. His one comment about your volume is wrong, because it was quite fine. There were some technical issues, however, and I left comment there. I'll look for your corrected recording. I'll be on vacation next week, but should be able to check in.
