Here is Section 28 Furphy

:D

I have corrected the mistakes made. At the bottom of the text there is a description of the word Furphy I asked if I should record this and was told to to put it after the Title but before the text. Therefore I have put in as an Editors Note to Explain what Furphy means as requested, and have also increased the end silence.

Gidday Tricia,
Here is Section 31, A Confession of Faith

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/anzacbook_31_various_128kb.mp3

File Size: 1.9mb
Length: 2:6.20

Thanks for letting me be part of the team, please let me know how I can improve.
Have a great week,
Paul Stewart
Very nicely read.
But could you pay more attention to the requirements on silences at beginning and end?
* Too long silence at beginning (max of 1 sec required)
* Final silence not the full 5 secs required
Lastly, Please remove the first verse you read (So though your name.... CEWB) because this is the final verse of section 30, and has nothing to do with yours, other than appearing under the page heading.

I'll mark the section as Ready for PL until we can see the notes, if any.

Apologies, I omitted to post them, so you would not have seen them.
There were just a few.

Silence at end is not the full 5 secs required.

There are some errors in reading text at:
~ 3.45 (not what is written)
~4.00 (remove extra some)
~ 5.53 said (not seen)

For your info, D------- and D---d stand for Damn and Damned which were considered rude/blasphemous at the time. In print, this works, but not when reading. I think it makes far more sense to read them as Damn and Damned than as D-uh which doesn't really make sense, and may confuse a listener.

Are you interested in any feedback on improving your reading?
regards
Jane Bennett

Hi Jane -

Thanks for the feedback. Do you realize this is a standard PL? That means that if the word pronounced does not affect the story line then it can be left in. I appreciate what you pointed out to me, however the first two did not disrupt the story line. Nevertheless, I have changed them as the third item needed to be changed as those are totally different words.

As for the D comment - I did not know that and in previous books that I have read, I read it as I have been previously instructed, recorded and been PL'd.

Lastly, the silence at the end of the document IS 5 seconds. Not sure where you are starting to count but the recording ended at 7:33 and the silence went to 7:38. The 5 seconds is not an exact science - it needs to be around 5 seconds - not significantly less but it also can be more like 5.5 or 6 seconds too.

No thanks, I do not need help with my reading. I have a disability that sometimes affects my ability to read and reading is my therapy. Also, after reading 2500 sections over the last 2 years and PL'ing about half as many, I have a lot of experience under my belt.

It would be nice though when you PL to provide a bit more information to the reader - the feedback on the change needed at 4:00 and 5:53 were good, however at 3:45 instead of writing (not what is written) it would be easier for the reader (as you also gave an approximate time), to know what part of the text you are questioning or some kind of hint like that.

I look forward to the rest of your PL'ing of my work.

Lynda

I am aware of the differences. Different people will always PL slightly differently. Like readers really.
I always err on the side of the *listener*, regardless of what previous people have or have not done re. Damn and Damned. (Indeed, this is the first time in all my PL's that I've heard someone read it as Duh-er and to my mind, simply does not make sense. If you don't care about making sense, leave as is.

Stepping in to clarify a couple things:

1. I personally always swallow the word when it's written D---d or D---, as that is the way the text is written and the way the author intended it. While this isn't as serious as a reader omitting or changing a derogatory racial term in a text, it's still (IMHO) changing the text to agree with today's sensibilities rather than reading the text as written. So I don't counsel people to change the text when reading, even in a case like this.

2. LibriVox is reader-centric, so please, in standard PL, do try to err on the side of the reader. :) There's a fine line, I know, between wanting to help a reader improve and overstepping that fine line of "no unsolicited criticism." :? We're all doing our best, and we appreciate both the readers and PL'ers that are giving it their all yet work to strike that fine balance.

That said, some readers do appreciate thorough and detailed PL'ing and coaching as to how to make their recordings better; and when they want it, they should ask for it rather than just going with "standard" PL. (Some say, I hope we change the wording from "standard" to "basic" or "baseline" PL, as that is what it is - the bare basics.)

(Here's a run-down on the levels of proof-listening as well as a note about "fine lines": https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Guide_for_Proof-listeners#Levels_of_Proof-listening )
Elizabethan Poetry: The Psalmes of David
Boring works 30-70 minutes long: Insomnia Collection 5
Short essays: Elia, and The Last Essays of Elia
Bulwer-Lytton novel: The Caxtons
