:D

Can you or the Forum please help me, and tell me if there are any pop, bump or clicking Audio apps that I can get other than Audacity, as I create bump sounds when recording in the words and find them hard to remove? :hmm: Thanks.
Thanis!
One way or another we'll get this finished before the end of the month.
Thank you.
It's mostly OK, but your front and back bits don't follow the pattern set out in the first topic post, so you'll need to change them, please.

~ .24s Insert Fables of Aesop and Others, by Aesop before the story name
~ 3.26 I hear 'end of poem' but I should hear 'end of Section 46. Please delete the extra and unwanted statement 'This recording is in the public domain'
This is beyond a standard PL, but I will comment that the reading is relatively slow in places, with a lot of overly long pauses and drawn out phrases (single words, word by word, or only two to three words at a time), which tends to make the story drag a bit. You might give attention to reading in longer phrases, with fewer long pauses, which would enhance the listener experience.

Re. your query on pups, bumps etc, this is most unlikely to be Audacity and far more likely the mike, your position and/or something you are doing. For example, pops are almost always caused by puffs of breath close to the mike, and can be avoided via varying the mike placement, distance from your mouth and/or a Pop filter. Bumps are usually due to being close to the mike, it not being well positioned, and perhaps moving while reading.

I would post your query in the Need Help? forum here: viewforum.php?f=23 as it will get lost here.
Make sure you give a link to a sample reading unedited and point to where you have issues, so people can listen and offer advice. You can load your sample in the sample place as the one-minute-test files.

Thanks for reading.
regards

Thank you for your reply, sorry about the errors. Have now corrected these but wish to know the order of intro, as it says in the 'start of the intro' the statement 'this recording in the public domain' should be in the intro, can you please let me know if you still wish me to delete this statement. Thanks

That exact phrase isn't actually in the intro. The only time it is used is usually just for poetry projects, when it is used at the end. All other projects use a standard format.

For this one it is:


START of recording (Intro)
"Section [number] of Fables of Aesop and Others. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Say:
"Fables of Aesop and Others, by Aesop. [Story Name]"

END of recording
At the end of the section, say:
"End of Section [Number]

Hi there silverquill. Do I need to fix/redo anything? Just wondering if you need anything else from me.

Thanks!

Thanks for checking in!
There was one small correction needed on your section:

====
Nice reading. I regret to say there is one thing needing fixing:
the second word as is omitted ~ 1.35 The text says as fierce as tigers (but I just hear "as fierce tigers")
====

Should be an easy fix, and if you can do this, we're almost done with this long project. :thumbs:

I have done the corrections that you have asked for. I hope that this recording is now correct. If not, could you please show me exactly what to do in order of sequence, so that I can finish this Section. Thanks.

Thanks so much.

We may need a new recording on Section 111. I'vce had no response to PMs and it is not something I can fix, since part of the recording was from a different chapter. I'll let you know this evening.

Fantastic!
So, pending PL on these two sections, one Spot PL we are done with just one correction to come in. The reader did check in, but I haven't heard back, and I sent a PM today, so I'm hoping for the best. :)

I'm confused here, because the version loaded is still 3.35s long (although you advise this is now 3.10)and does not appear to have had any of the required changes made. Can you clarify if you loaded the revised version please?
