Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

Setions 33, 37 and 38 are all Spot PL OK. I've got to congratulate you on the quality of the editing, Annie - the joins are inaudible.

Re: [LEGENDS] The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 11 - kik

I tried checking with the reader of the one remaining section if they were still working on this and the forum software reported that the reader no longer existed. I'm therefore orphaning the passage if anyone else would like to take it.

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

Hey! Could I take 30 and/or 31? You'd be very welcome to, but before you record your first passage we like you to record a test piece first. This isn't an audition so much as to check that you can produce a file that meets LibriVox's technical specifications. Details are here: https://wiki.librivox...

Section 35: Spot PL OK

Section 36: We've still got the verbal slip at 3:14, but as that's only a small error I'm also marking this as Spot PL OK.

Thanks,

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

New version of section 33 ready for spot PL. Thank you for that - all the corrections sound great. There's one small thing - I don't know if I missed this first time around or if it's a result of the edit, but the audio is missing the 5s silence at the end. Could I get you to add that on, please?

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

Lett me clarify. In the intro we are to read The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night, Volume 12 But the tile for the chapter as printed is THE KING WHO KENNED THE QUINTESSENCE OF THINGS.--Vol. XI. p. 212. The volume is 11 which is confusing. So skip the page, number do I read 'volume 11' It's c...

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

When reading the chapter title, you don't want the volume and page number read as it is in the text? How do you want to handle foot notes? You can ignore footnotes and the page numbers, but please preserve the volume number as the partition into volumes is preserved in the layout on Librivox. Thank...

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

And done... Finally... Is it wrong to be thoroughly glad that you've finally finished a part that you chose and then it turned out to be so much harder than you expected? When i mentioned it to some friends they asked if it was the Arabic that made it hard and I had to say no, while it wasn't easy,...

I'd like to read 51 and 52. Thanks!
Section 51 has already been taken, but I've allocated 52 to you. That said, as they're two parts of the same tale, do let me know if you'd prefer something different.

Cheers,
Paul
