I have several questions about the chapter. Is this the place I should be asking them?

1.) I think this name Vindciae Gallicae may have a typo because when I look it up on HowToPronounce it comes up as Vindiciae Gallicae with an i between the d and the c. Not sure what to do about that.

2.) There are two footnotes (A) and (B) listed in the chapter. How should I read that? Should I say "Footnote A" and then "Footnote B"?

You may pronounce it the way howtopronoounce says.
2.) There are two footnotes (A) and (B) listed in the chapter. How should I read that? Should I say "Footnote A" and then Footnote B"?
No need to say footnote A -
When you come to a place where the footnote is you can read it into the text where it should be and in that case just say footnote and then end of footnote

If you decide to read it at the end of the article I think the listener won't get the meaning of the footnote. So I think its best to insert it into the reading where the meaning can be appreciated.

Does that help?

If they get in the way of the listener experience - breaths are normal in reading.

Hi LGroden - do you have access to the Magic Window?

Let me know if you have any questions about using the Magic Window.

Leni if LGroden doesn't have access can you grant him that right?

Thanks to both of you and all readers for helping out on this project :thumbs:

Craig
It doesn't look like I have access to the Magic Window yet.
