Hi! I got my 1 minute test approved - sorry for hopping in so early.
I'd be happy to take section 2 :)
Wonderful!
Thanks for sticking with it, and you have Section 2. :)

Pretty sure I butchered a few names in this, but it's ready for PL:

Well, thank you so much!
Sounds good. There are a few web sites that can help with pronunciation of words and names, but we aren't perfectionists on this. And, pronunciations do vary. Sometimes, with older names especially, no one really knows. In fact, no one really knows how to pronounce "LibriVox." :lol: So, you'll hear it all sorts of ways.

Just sampled your recording and the only two things that jumped out at me are: 1) you need NO MORE than one second of silence at the beginning and you have over two. 2) We don't need the date after the translator's name.

But, our DPL will be along to give you a full report.

Thanks for our first recorded section for this project. :thumbs:

Good afternoon,

PL for Section 2 is complete. Only one issue. The reading is good, clear, and I would highly encourage ruthema to continue reading for LV.

At the beginning of the audio, there is just a little more than 2 seconds of silence before she began speaking. A simple edit of the file will bring it down to the .5-1 seconds of silence needed.

Stay Awesome!

I fixed the silence at the beginning and removed the date after the translator's name - thank you for the feedback!

I watched a couple videos about Melanchthon before recording to try to at least figure out his name... even then I couldn't find a solid consensus :? . Here's the updated version:

Thanks so much!

Yep, that is not surprising. We'll probably end up with a variety of pronunciations, and that's fine.
Your are certainly free to read more chapters if you like. :mrgreen:
