Chapters 4, 6 and 7 are PL OK! :thumbs:

Chapter 5 PL notes:

@00:12 - Missing first paragraph: "Thinking of taking a swim?" Specks called out. "Some dive you'd have to make first, eh?"

@00:27 - Missing phrase: … pivoting from Biff to Charlie, a frightened look in his eyes, reached for the doorknob.

Thank you,

This is Chapter 5 with corrected edits. (The first edit at 00:12 and second edit is at 1:27 approx). (I'm not sure what to do with the MW, will the new file overwrite the old one?) Duration:10:56

I'm having a lot of trouble - making it very difficult - if not impossible to get the text from Gutenberg. I used to just copy it to a word processor or make a .pdf file to put on my tablet. Now I find that the text is corrupted and some of it either comes as a stream of vertical print for many pages, or it misses out huge sections, or both. This is what caused the problem with chapter 5. If I go to the version without images then it now takes me to a box connected to the Apple shop and asks for passwords etc. Gutenberg has changed a system that used to work well, to a system which is a real mess. I've spent ten times more time trying to get accurate texts than recording and editing.

I should point out that I record away from the computer on a separate recording device in another room a long way from the computer, and so I need to either print the text or put it on a tablet.

Any idea how or what has happened? At this rate the book could take ten years to complete and i won't be around in a year or two let alone ten!

OK, I've solved it and downloaded into the word processor all of the files. It's ****** computers and software that's the problem. Lot's of hours of extra fruitless work.

I used to down load from Gute and copy into the word processor. If there were images (who needs images!) - I just used to delete them and all the text was fine. Now (and I'm sure it's new software with Gute) - if I delete the images (and there were several in different chapters but not all chapters) it completely wrecks the text. It's a pain and a waste of space to have to keep the images, but I see no other way around it. Someone messed up big time writing Gute's new software.

Thanks for all the help and advice. In the end it should have been obvious to me that it was the images, and only the chapters with images, that were causing the problems.

Almost there Peter. :)

@00:13 - The first part of the paragraph above is still missing (here in red): "Thinking of taking a swim?" Specks called out. "Some dive you'd have to make first, eh?"

And you were OK with the MW. You don't have to change anything there. When you upload the file again, the process first renames the old file to some else, so that files are never overwritten; the lastest, greatest file is the one appearing in the MW.

Chapters 8, 9, 10 and 11 are PL OK! :thumbs:

New file. Chapter 05 Correction of opening.

New Duration: 11:00

Hi Don

So sorry for all the mistakes. I can't believe what a mess I've been making of this chapter. I had re-recorded the edit OK, but for some reason I cut the opening sentence. I think I'm beginning to lose it! This time I checked the new file I have just uploaded into the MW by listening to it. It must be pure luck that all the other chapters have been OK. (So far!) I don't think I would make a very good proof listener when I can't PL my own stuff properly!

Hi Peter,

Chapter 5 is PL OK!

No worries about this chapter. Don't beat yourself up over this. These things happen to everyone (including myself) from time to time. You've been doing fine on this project, as the forum thread shows. :thumbs:
