The intro disclaimer is read out of order. Please read as instructed here:
"Chapter [number] of Mrs. Dalloway . 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]"
"Mrs. Dalloway , by Virginia Woolf . [Chapter]"
13:42: Should be 'Let him then face the screen' but I heard 'let him face then face the screen'.
This file ends at 'Ah Damn she cried' but should have gone on until 'One scene after another at Bourton'
Thanks for your help, Ashleigh! I also PLed this section, and I have some additional notes. I compiled all of the notes together in the list below:
1. As noted above, the intro is incorrect. Here is the intro you should be reading: "Chapter 10 of of Mrs. Dalloway. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org. Mrs. Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf. Chapter 10."
2. At 02:58, there is clipping on the word "lovely" (i.e., the volume is too loud, which distorts the sound). Please re-record the sentence.
3. At 13:42, there is a stumble ("let him then face the screen").
4. Pages 221-233 are missing--you stopped at "she cried," and should have read to "one scene after another at Bourton."
5. The outro is missing. The correct outro is "End of Chapter 10."
6. There should be five full seconds of silence at the end of the recording to avoid the potential that any reading is cut off the recording is downloaded onto mobile devices by listeners. Currently, there is less than one second of silence at the end of the recording.
7. I noticed that your breath tends to hit your microphone rather hard on the letter "p." This popping noise is called a "plosive," and is caused by the positioning of your microphone. Try moving your microphone to the side of your mouth, rather than right in front of it, and back up ever so slightly. To ensure that repositioning doesn't make your recording too quiet, monitor the volume using Checker. The plosives are not significant enough to require recording over again; I just want you to be aware for next time.
Let me know if you need any help editing the section!
