Hi,
I can see that you have assigned me the chapter I asked for but it says waiting on one-minute test. I have already been okayed. It is posted in the introduce yourself section- under new reader from Maine.
Thank you
Beth

No problem, Beth. Sorry I missed that. You're all set to go! :D

Here is Vol 1 Chapter 11. My first contribution. Any advice would be appreciated. If I missed something, let me know and I will correct or re-record.

I should have added the total length. 25:41
Thank you, Don. Actually, the name of the file should be "themysteriousisland_11_verne.mp3" You have left out the second "_" after 11. Do you mind uploading it again? Thank you so much!

Hello Don Halpert,

Very nice reading. Your recording is missing the 5 seconds of silence at the end though. We need those because some audioplayers cut of your reading otherwise.

At 25:30 there is a mouseclick, which you might want to edit out since you have to fiddle with your file anyway.

You have some background noises sometimes, paper rattling and such, but it isn't really disturbing for this reading, so you're PL OK, when you've added the 5 seconds of silence.

There's a lot of great advice and help on editing here:

It doesn't really have to be hard :D

Looking forward to more.

Thanks for the advice. I will re-edit and resend it next weekend. And I'll read the reference you sent so that I can get better. My motto is 'continuous improvement'.

I did as you asked. Edited my breathing out, added 5 seconds of silence at the end, and applied the noise removal. However, when I tried to upload, it told me "failed, file already exists". I guess that's the first version. So I did the only thing my little brain could think of - I renamed it, removing "The" from the title. So it is "Mysterious Island...etc".
I'll paste the url shortly.
