All the technical settings are correct :clap:

The volume is a little bit on the soft side -- we aim for 89 dB and anything between 87 and 91dB is fine. The volume here is 86 or so, so it would be good if you either use a slightly higher input volume or amplify a little bit

Finally I have a style suggestion. Please keep in mind that this is only my opinion, and thus only a suggestion, not a requirement. :) The pauses between your sentences are very short -- it sounds like you perhaps have edited out your breathing without adding space between them? Personally I like hearing the breath of the reader (and I dont edit out my own breaths). As a listener, though, I feel a bet "breathless" if the recording leaves little space between sentences.

You voice is nice to listen to! :thumbs:

After 6 months waiting, this is certainly not worthy of applause, a party or even a kudos. So I will gently slip in here and say Chapter 1 is ready for PL:

https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/annalsofann_01_sharber_128.mp3
Time 27:49.09 / 89.9 dB

I can't guarantee "speedy" progress, but hopefully will not be another 6 months before the next submission.

Thanks!!
CJ
Kind Regards!

Great reading in chapter 1! :clap:

Only one PL note:
Please reduce the silence at the end to 5 seconds or so (it used to be that longer recordings needed 10 seconds of silence, but that has been changed).

Please save with the same name and upload again. :9:

I noticed this project has the symbol for a DPL. I would love to listen unless Kathrine wants to keep doing it. :)

Chapter 2 -6 are ready for PL. My uploader is giving me fits (my internet connection I believe). I know for sure Chapters 2 & 3 are in. I think I got an error on the others. I didn't want to be redundant with several messages though. I will re-try the upload of 4-6 later this evening.

I will PL as soon as possible :)

Quick note: I haven't PL anything of these chpts yet, but I did click on one and noticed(in chpt 2 anyway) that you have about 5 seconds of silence at the beginning, and I think your not supposed to have more than 1 second at the beginning of recordings :)

No rush on PL. Doesn't seem like it has been that long since I worked on a project. However, I am obviously out of the loop with the changes in beginning and ending times.

I will try and correct each and get them uploaded correctly. 1 second at the beginning and 5 at the end. :)
