Hello April - Very nice reading!! :clap: :clap:

There are just a few corrections to make. There is a lot of extraneous noises during the beginning of the recording - sounding like people talking in the background or a tv. You might consider running noise reduction on it just to see if it reduces some of these noises. Also, If you look at the wave form, you can see that there is an underlying noise throughout the recording that could be easily clean up by running noise reduction on the entire piece. The way I do it (on Audacity), is selecting a piece of the silence where I see there is noise, then going to "Effect" and "Get Noise Profile", then selecting the entire piece I make sure the noise reduction is set at 12, and sensitivity is set at 6, Frequency smoothing at 9, noise at reduce and click ok.

Chapter 1:
:50 - 57 - there is a shuffling/muffled noise
1:01 - Wrong name, I hear "Luca and Dora", it should be "Lucy and Dora
2:00 - background coughing
3:22 - I hear "so there would be no room to go somewhere else," it should read, "so there would be room..." as they are talking about someone not being able to stand in the hallway because it was so small and you had to move out of it so others could come in.
4:56 - background cough
5:59 - unidentifiable background noise
Please add one second to the end of the recording for 5 seconds, there is 4 currently.

Chapter 2 -

Hi JayKitty! Great reading! :thumbs:
One technical issue to correct, your volume is low at 85.5, it should be between 86 and 92.
There are a few stumbles, nothing major.
4:21 - Stumble - "but then" "but just then"
5:13 - Stumble on phrase In eastern Massachusetts
