Hi Michael. I've uploaded section 27. It was a bit of a bear to read but I did learn a lot. Hope it's usable! Now I will decide whether to claim section 28 - the rest of the chapter.

Here's the url: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/cambridgemodernhistory2_27_128kb.mp3
Thank you! I'll try to listen soon.

Michael

(41:19) I hear "endure" instead of "injure" (IN-jure)
There should be 5 seconds of silence at the end.

Please make these edits in the existing recording, rather than reading the whole text again.

I'll wait until this section is done before PLing the next one. If you could check your other sections for similar issues and fix any that you find in the meantime, that would be greatly appreciated. :)

In terms of CC, I would suggest making sure there's a pause at the end of every sentence and paying additional attention to the pronunciation of the long ee, so it doesn't come out sounding like the short i (e.g., "least" as "list"), which can be confusing.

I'll also comment on prononciation of two words that occur frequently in this chapter. "Apostle" rhymes with "colossal" (the t is silent), and I'm hearing an extra "ghee" syllable in Zwingli (pronounced ЦВИНГ-ли). I won't ask you to fix those here, but you could keep that in mind for other recordings.

Thanks!
Michael

Hi Jonathan,

You've done a fantastic job with the various languages and generally in making this text easy to follow. There are just a few minor stumbles that need to be edited out:

(4:49) p. 247 "wherever he had..."
(12:29) p. 249 "content to crown..."
(13:05) "their refusal be... would be"
(19:47) p. 250 "and concluded a cho... truce"
(24:03) p. 251 "who were deaf... detached"
(44:34) p. 256 "eff... as fast as
(45:08) p. 257 "Mu... Maurice's attack"
(45:15) p. 257 "loss of their tr... trade"

All these can be eliminated by cutting out a little bit of the soundwave. For bookkeeping purposes, we ask readers to tell us the duration of their recording (mm:ss) for every upload.

Also, for the future, I'm hearing occasional "p-pops", which is a special kind of noise that results when a breath puff makes a direct impact on the mic. None of them are strong enough to ask for a fix, and you can eliminate them in future recordings by shifting the mic a bit to the side (or using a pop-filter). If you do decide to change anything that's not listed in the PL notes, please give me the timestamps of additional places to spot-check.

Thanks!
Michael

I would like to claim section 71.

Because there seems to be no unfamiliar words and I have been reading lots of history lately.
Also finally have a room ready for recording in.

Hopeforce1.

Hi Kelly,

The uploader is slow and it sometimes throws an error. Please keep trying until it shows you the URL. :)

Hi Michael,
I went back and ran it thru the uploader 5 times and still got error. Then I saw maximum upload was 100MB and mine was 151.02. So I attempted to cut it and ran the cut portion thru and still got an error. Don't know what to do now. I don't think I did well with the names so it may not be worth saving. Do you have a Huckleberry Fin type book?

thx,
Kelly

Hi Kelly,

Sorry to hear you're having upload difficulties. This section should be about 30 mins long, which should come out to about 30MB. Unless your reading is over 2 hours long, it sounds like there's a problem with those technical parameters that you set for your 1-minute test. Please review them again, and you may want to do another 1-minute test to check them.

You picked quite a challenging reading for your first contribution. You may want to start with a shorter text, and we have lots of projects in different genres to choose from. You can find them by browsing these forums:

Readers Wanted: Short Works (Poetry & Prose)
viewforum.php?f=19

Readers Wanted: Books
viewforum.php?f=2

I'm giving you a 1-month extension for this section. If you decide that you want to submit your reading after you figured out the file size issue (perhaps also after completing a couple of shorter contributions to other projects), please do so before April 5. If you decide to pass on this one, I'll reopen the section for other readers.

Thanks,
Michael

Your German pronunciation is music to my ears. :) The section just needs 2 seconds of silence added at the end.

(2:02) p. 154, I hear "inaptability" instead of "inadaptability"
(6:01) I hear "normally" instead of "nominally"
(7:02) I hear "no proof" instead of "not proof" (proof = able to withstand)
(10:04) p. 156 I hear "The deputies of the town" instead of "towns"
(10:50) p. 157 I hear "authority" instead of "autonomy", subtle but significant change of meaning
(13:14) I hear "juridicature" instead of "judicature"
(16:23) I hear "naturalized" instead of "neutralized"
(16:24) Placing the stress on the second syllable of "impotence" instead of the first makes it sound like "importance", which nearly reverses the meaning
(20:58) p. 159 I hear "the friar extracted" instead of "friars"
(21:54) Missing sentence: "So while the Princes... the cities."
(25:04) p. 160 Missing phrase "in east Friesland"
(30:41) p. 162 I hear something like "boolkwalk" instead of "bulwark"
(30:56) I hear "men's" instead of "men"
(30:57, 31:03) I hear "woman" instead of "women" (pronounced "wimen")

(33:23) confusing stress in "impotence"

(34:06) confusing stress in "impotence"

Hi, here's the edits.

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/cambridgemodernhistory2_18_128.mp3

I corrected every comments you had, but the time you had noted are now shifted, as the edits changed the precise location by a few seconds.
Here are the Archbishops timestamps:

Archbishops:
P.155 - (05:55)
P.155 - (06:26)
P.156 - (08:10)
P:158 - (17:09)
P.160 - (24:36)
P.162 - (29:37)
p.163 - (35:15)
p 163 - (35:31)

I have ordered a new micro, section 19 should be far more consistent. Also, you will notice that the edits have a noticeable different sound quality. That's both because I changed location, the echo is different, and because I forgot which effects I had applied, in which order. I played with my edits a long time, but I was not able to match it well enough in Audacity. But for next time, I will note exactly what I am doing, so that if I have edits to do later, I can re-create the same sort of sounds as the original.
