Hi

Section 4. Thanks for the heads up. A little while since I submitted a reading and had stupidly forgotten to use the checker. The repetition was an attempt to suggest hesitation on the part of the narrator but I was taking a bit of a liberty with the text so I've taken it out.

Richard,
Do you know why this file is 30 seconds shorter than the first file you submitted? It's spot check PL OK, as noted above, but it seems strange to me that one word edited out would make it so much shorter. I just want to make sure that nothing else was edited out!

Hi

It's a bit shorter because on listening again I felt some of the silent bits were too long and I shortened them. No text has been cut.

Hope that 's ok.

Richard

Hi Sarah! Section 1 sounds great. The only PL note I have for you is that the file is only 86.7 dB. We aim for 87-91 dB. To adjust the volume in Audacity, select the whole recording. Click Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number +2.3 dB. Verify that the file is around 89 dB using Checker, then re-upload using the same filename. Post in this thread when the file is ready for spot PL. Thanks so much!

Oh, no worries! Our MC can correct such errors at cataloging. The note in the MW was for her.
