I would like to claim Sections 21 to 23 (all of Fer-de-Lance), if I can get confirmation of a few points of pronunciation.

These are two questions about the same character, Lieutenant Claude Field:
1. Is Claude to be pronounced pronounced as rhyming with "road" or "odd"? (The French or the English way...I know the character is English, but...)
2. Is "Lieutenant" to be pronounced loo-tenant (the American way) or leff-tenant (the British way)? (Again, I know the character is English, but...)

I think I can manage the rest--if I can't I'll ask again.

As always, I don't have a preference on pronunciation. If you want to have Lieutenant Claude Field to be the fully British character that he needs to be, then I say go for it. One possible way to handle how to pronounce the words in question, in the regular text, pronounce them as an American would, but when that character talks, he could say them in the British way. But, I have never been picky about pronunciation, however you want to do it is fine with me.

Thanks for the response, that sounds good.

I'll get started on those sections.

Section 17 needs two quick edits, then it will be perfect!

At the very beginning, the silence needs to be cut down to about 1/2 a second, it is currently at 4 seconds.

At the end, right after you say, "The End," you need to say, "End of Section 17," with 5 seconds of silence right after it.

Great job!

Thank you. I guess instead of 0.5 seconds to start, I put 5.0. Ooopsie! I'll get that fixed ASAP. I'm so glad to have taken part :9:
C'est bon.

I have uploaded Sections 21, 22, and 23.

I left the files without ID3 tags because I didn't see any that I was supposed to add in the opening post here.

I have to say, it was really interesting engaging with this text. What a time capsule! There's just all kinds of casual racism and sexism. So much so that I'm a little worried about how my portrayal of Dan in Section 21 sounds. The dialogue was written all Uncle Tom's Cabin, so that's how I read it, true to the text and the author's apparent vision of an obsequious African eager to please the white man...

Yes, these stories are very much a product of their time, but that should never stop us from presenting them to people today. I will give these a listen as soon as I can! Do you have time durations for your recordings? I just want to make sure I have the whole file. Oh, and about the tags, you don't need to put them in because the cataloging system will put them in for us. Less work for us to do! Thank you!

I just hope the voice I gave Dan wasn't going a bit too far, if you know what I mean.

That's good to know about the tags, too, thank you.

As for file durations:
Section 21 is 16:38,
Section 22 is 6:29,
and Section 23 is 3:13.
