Oh bummer! I thought we'd get to Readers found! Hehe, I guess this can go back to the Senior!

Welcome to LibriVox On Lam :D

We recommend that new readers post a short test recording in the Listeners & Editors Wanted section of the forums. This is NOT an audition, but a way to check to make sure all your technical settings are correct, your volume loud enough, etc.

It would be a shame to have you record the section and find that some of the required specs are incorrect.

Hello! I think I jumped in a little far above my reading abilities with my section 13 - The Dominion of Canada. I've read it OK, but I think the amount of editing that I'd have to do is too much for me to get done before I go on a trip this fall. Can I turn my section back in please?

I see your test recording came out OK, just lower the volume a bit.
You should aim for your wave forms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

You are in the MW for section Section 62: The States of Australia.

That's a shame to do all the work recording Kim. Thank you for the heads-up, I'll open up Section 13.

Chapter 2 PL notes:
0:54 - throat clearing, needs to be edited out
2:41 - "in winter, they have ... in round houses made of snow" Should be "they live in round houses". This is a problem with the Google Doc, and why I prefer to look at the original. :)
4:39 - throat clearing, needs to be edited out
4:59 - missed edit "like this"
7:39 - missed edits "there Indians"
10:09 - throat clearing
11:09 - "in the camps" needs to be edited out
14:36 - stumble over "of", easily edited
16:24 - missed edit "and two of these"
17:20 - missed edit "A-ards long" - this is another typo in the Google doc
19:20 - a yawn. Not sure if this can be edited out, but the line could be re-recorded.
Could benefit from some noise cleaning.
