Re: [NATURE] The Grand Cañon of the Colorado by John Muir -jo

Section 02 The Grand Cañon of the Colorado Duration: 11:17 https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/grandcanon_02_muir_128kb.mp3 I decided to divide into 4 sections instead of 3 -- to try to keep all sections 20 minutes or less. If a title is needed for the section - and I am to create it (sin...

Re: [NATURE] The Grand Cañon of the Colorado by John Muir -jo

Having trouble getting nyquist to install/open on Windows10 - error message. Once I can run these through de-esser, they are ready to submit. (I'm h...

Re: SOLO Selections from Josephus by Titus Flavius Josephus-mas

Larry, I think you have suggested the perfect solution! It feels seamless yet gives the gift of knowledge/insights without detracting. If meets with approval I will read without number or a footnote notation but simply say the footnote information as if it were clarification that followed a comma in...

Re: SOLO Selections from Josephus by Titus Flavius Josephus-mas

Thackeray's 430 footnotes are jewels - like what you would hear him say as you sat in his Josephus class at King's College Cambridge. I feel to omit them would be a loss - like an abridged version of the book. Footnotes are a conundrum the audiobook production industry seems to be struggling with. I...

Re: SOLO Selections from Josephus by Titus Flavius Josephus-mas

The book will be recorded in 22 Sections. Also I am recording all 430 footnotes as well as the seven additional Notes on Selections. The only difference from print will be the footnotes will be read at the end of each Selection that Thackeray made and the long additional Note on Selection (#) will a...
