Thanks for the response. I’m saying that there is an entire chapter that is in the book that is not in the audio. Chapter 5 from the text version of the book is not in the audio book, and the chapter that is read on the audio version as chapter 5 is really chapter 6 in the text version of the book. I’m reading the oxfords world classics version so I’m pretty sure it is the regular text.

Also, many thanks for this app and the people who volunteer. I’m a graduate student, and I read along with the audio file through most of my books. Our fellow classmates are big fans as well.

For “The Italian” by Ann Radcliffe, Chapter 5 is missing from the recording. It skips to chapter 6 which is read as chapter 5 by the reader.

The original text (from Adelaide) is no longer available. I found it on Hathi: https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=umn.31951001613970l&view=1up&seq=105

Chapter 4 says "ch 5" in the intro.

Chapters 5 and 6 are both there, but transposed.

We'll work on it.

EDIT: Errr, no - section 7 is chapter 7. I'll get this figured out.

Ohmygoodness - so many of the intros have the wrong chapter number! This is going to take a long time to sort out.

OK, here's the status.

I think the text that was used omitted chapter 5, because all the intros and files are wrongly numbered, as if they didn't know there was a chapter 5. We'll need someone to record chapter 5.

I have the rest of the files' intros, file names, and ID tags fixed on my computer. So once we get a recording of chapter 5 (named theitalian_06_radcliffe), I can add it to the project and fix the rest of the files at the same time.

Mind if I do the recording for chapter 5?

Please do! It's the standard intro for books, if that helps. You could also download one of the shorter chapters and use that as a guide to the intro wording.

Let me know if you have any issues with it.

Thanks! PL OK. I'll incorporate it into the project in the next couple days. (Responsibilities elsewhere are such that I should set this aside for now.) :)

This should be fixed.

The PDF case inserts and M4Bs aren't fixed yet, but the MP3s are all there.
