Hi, may you please replace the other recording with this one please? I think it sounds much better since I am now using Audacity for recording! Thanks!

I will ask our DPL if thy will listen to this again. The file you just uploaded automatically replaces any other prefiously uploaded with the same file name.

Chapter 9, Winkie Learns Tricks, has been put back into the pool for anyone to claim. It is the very last section that needs a reader. :D

Hi again Lily,
Thanks for the resubmission. The reading itself sounds great--the quality is wonderful!--other than an error at 01:14, where the text reads "as always happens with dogs when they are caught doing something they ought not to do," and you read "as always happens with dogs when they are caught doing something they ought to do" (omitting the word "not," which changes the meaning of the sentence). As for the technical specifications of the file, the volume is far too low at 77.4 dB. The volume needs to be at least 86 dB, preferably 87-91 dB. You can adjust the input volume before recording to avoid using the amplify feature in Audacity during post-processing. The input volume is the level at which your recording device is receiving your voice while you read. You want to avoid having it set too low or too high. For more information on how to set the input volume, visit this page in the LibriVox wiki.

Adjusting the input volume will help in the future, but Section 10 will need to be amplified so that it meets LibriVox's technical specifications. First, check the volume via Checker. In Audacity, select the whole recording. Click Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number of dB you want to amplify or de-amplify by (in this case, +11.6 dB). Verify that the file is around 89 dB using Checker (see the "Information" tab). Then, re-upload using the same file name for spot PL. Thanks so much.

Hi,

I was wondering if chapter 9 - Winkie Learns Tricks is still available?

If chapter 9 is available, I would like to record it.

Thanks,
Paul
