Just one tiny edit needed - a clip of a word at the very end of the file after the ending silence.

Thank you! :) I will reserve the section for you.

You'll need to do the 1-minute test before you do your section recordings. Its sole purpose is to make sure your recording specs are set properly, and there's no problem with your sound/volume. You'll want those worked out properly before you do the work of a full chapter.

Here's where you can find the directions for that. Let me know if you have questions, because even I can get a little mixed around looking for things in the forum and wiki. :)

Link to 1-Minute Test

Also, when you've got that cleared, I will need to know what name you want to go by in the public Catalog (can be your forum name or anything else you want). And if you have a Web site you'd like listed on your Reader page, include that URL with your Catalog name.

Thank you, Yalda!

I will need to make your Catalog Reader Page for the MW to let me assign the chapter to you. (I see you are all ready to go, having finished the 1-Minute test.)

What name would you like to have in the public Catalog? (The one people see when they up LibriVox books on the Internet. It can be your forum name, Yalda, or anything else you want.)

Also, if you have Web site you would like to be linked on your Reader page, tell us the URL, and we can put it on there for you. :)

Thanks, Johan,

I answered your test post - there's only one required change on specs, and a suggested note about plosives.

I apologize for putting an extra n on your name there. I won't mess it up when I initiate your Catalog page. :)

EDIT: Section 2 is all yours, and here is your Reader page in the public Catalog: Johan Supertramp

I'm unable to download the MP3Gain tool to help with my volume, due to the version of iOS on my Macbook. If you wouldn't mind fixing that for me, I would appreciate it. :D
