Hello! Please can I take section 9 (the miltary and political value of chivalrous ideas one)? This is my first reading but I'm used to reading medieval history as that's my degree. Thank you!
Hello, and welcome to LibriVox. Thanks for claiming, I will assign you the section, but we suggest that, before you start, you try the 1-minute test: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

PL Notes for section 9

There should be between 0.5 and 1 second of silence at the beginning of the file it is currently longer than this

There should be 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file it is currently longer than this

1:04 bump in the file
3:50 bump in the file
7:15 bump in the file


There is some background noise which detracts from the reading and should be removed please. To do this in Audacity.

Step 1 - Select a piece of background noise
Select a piece of background noise (no speech, breaths or other noises) in your audio.
In Menu click: Effect > Noise Reduction... A dialog will pop up.
Click "Get Noise Profile" The dialog box will close instantly.

Step 2 - Noise Reduction
Press CTRL-A / Command-A to select your complete recording.
In Menu click: Effect > Noise Reduction... again. Note: don't select "Repeat Noise Reduction" -- that instantly applies the default settings; you want to adjust the settings and preview the results before you apply the noise filters.

Set sensitivity to 6.00
Set frequency smoothing bands to 3
Choose Noise: Reduce
Click ok
