Sorry for the errors, have corrected them. If I have missed any would you please let me know. Would you please tell me the time of these mistakes so I can correct them.

Thanks.

Sorry, I usually do indicate the times, but because the poem is so short, I didn't think to do it this time. Forgive. You have fixed all the word mistakes, except the one at 2:09, which should not be winds (with a short i) and means a kind of weather, but winds (with a long i), which is a kind of movement that is curvy, not straight. Notice that the sense of the line has to do with the road. And your volume is still beyond the outer limit of 92.0. When you use Checker, it tells you if you are above or below the range. When I do this, it shows your volume is 92.6, which is closer than before, but it needs to be 92.0 or below (to 86). We will get there. And I hope I don't offend by telling you things you already know, but you, of course, don't want to re-record. Just fix the old and re-send. If you have any questions, I am happy to help. Jim :)

I think you have left off the s on "Hills" for the file. Can you re-send with the full title? In fact, all of your files have done this, so all need to be re-sent. Jim :thumbs:

Alan, I am not sure if you need to re-send. I am in communication with MC as to the procedure, so wait until I hear back. Jim

He says you will have to re-send all that omitted the s.

Sorry, Alan, I asked David, the MC, if renaming without re-sending would be acceptable, and he said no. Jim

P S But isn't re-uploading the same as re-sending or re-exporting?

I think you have taken care of it. You changed the titles and uploaded the corrected files. I think what David was saying is that it wouldn't work for me to go into the site and add the s's to your files as already loaded. You can see that my additions there wouldn't be permanent and wouldn't show up when the final work was done. Thanks. Jim

Thank you both, I see sections 43 & 44 got missed, and still need PLing.

Your Section 32 does not have an s on the word hills. Please fix the title on the file on your computer and then re-upload that file to LV.

Alan, both 43 and 44 are very nicely read. I have given you the PL ok for 43 but wondered if you wanted to change the pronunciation of the word bows in 44. I do this because both its pronunciations are correct, except in this poem about ships and sea journeying it doesn't fit as is. If you feel it could stand as is, I will abide by your decision. Jim
