I'll go ahead and take sections 6 and 8 (old house and from the poor house). The end of section 8 looks odd in the manuscript. I'll search for a different format to see if I can find clean text.
Hiya, what do you mean it looks strange? Are you looking af this text http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/9500 ?

Please dont use another text, as others might come with copyright restrictions! Thank you!

One of the links versions had some odd characters in a few places, maybe the pure text version, but another at the same site is ok, so I'll read from that. Thanks.

Volume on both of these is fine, and superbly read. :clap:

Two readers to go and we're done.

This are both nicely read, Paul. :thumbs:

The only thing that needs to be fixed is the volume. Both of these come in at 93.3 dB. Our target volume is 89 db with an acceptable range of 86-92 dB. So, just use the amplification function in Audacity set to -4 and that should bring them closer to the target. Just upload the files again under the same name and post a note here in the forum.

And, with that, we will be done!
