Hi Eliza,
we do not know how long this project would take. It is in the pace of the readers. I expect a dpl to at least let me know when they can and cannot pl. I use to pl every weekend for example, and all the chapters from the previous week would wait. But you can have your own turms. I would love to have you as dpl and oversee your learning process.

Thank you! I would love to DPL. Let me know if you need anything other than my keeping up on listening to finished chapters.

And here is Chapter 9, 36:32
Chapter 9 PL

I heard just a few minor things

01:56 “tree-shaded roads,” I heard tree-shaped roads
09:59 awkward pause and then missing word “nobody ... now but Nellie Langely who goes home”
10:18 self-effacing think is pronounced eh-FACE-ing with emphasis on second syllable. I heard EH-fuss-ing
26:43 stumble over word conscription

My goodness, that is so silly. I don't know why I keep reading it as "tree-shaped". That doesn't even make sense! Haha. Here are the updates. Hope they sound okay.

Hey to be fair, the words shaded and shaped look very similar. Chapter 9 sounds lovely. Spot check PL okay!

How lovely, thank you. Once our mc gives you access to the magic window, you would be able to put the dpl notes there. More on that later.

Welcome to DPLing, Eliza! I have arranged for you to have access to the Magic Window, now all that remains is for you to create the password for this access :mrgreen:

Here is the information about updating the Magic Window, which for the DPL mainly means changing the status in the last column
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window
To create your login, start from "Accessing the System – First Time Login"
Please ask, if anything is unclear.

You are doing great as proof-listener and I'm glad you are enjoying it! One thing I would like to point out is that we don't comment on pronunciation as sometimes there are more than one correct ways to pronounce a word :thumbs:

Adding you as a DPL has created a Reader Page for you in the Catalogue: https://librivox.org/reader/15771
It lists projects you read for, but can also help you keep track of your projects under the "Reader section details" link, both as a Reader and as a Proof-Listener. Is there a different Catalog Name you'd like to be credited by? and we can also add a personal URL if you'd like one shown.

:thumbs: Thanks Rapunzelina for all your help! It is greatly appreciated as I am figuring out how this all works. I think I actually was able to tweak my catalog name myself ...

Chapter 3 and 6 PL
I think some of these comments are probably too minor to change, but I am new so just going to list them all and let you/BC decide what, if anything, to fix.

Overall I could hear some minor breath noises. Not sure if there is an easy way for you to fix that or not for your future recordings. Also at the beginning and end of your clips I can hear light clicking sounds. Almost sounds like it might be your computer mouse.

Chapter 3
04:52 stumble, “and asked hi-his advice”
05:20 awkward pause, “and that he could start out ... on his next trip”
05:47 minor word wrong “swiftest little horse in the country” country should actually be county

Chapter 6
0:35 pause “un...til they see Fanny Foster”
03:39 pause “is that in ... her own house”
12:20 pause “Sam was out that ... afternoon”
13:54 pauses “those two grandchildren of hern... will ... be about all”
14:10 pause “he never missed his ... train twice in a year”
14:25 stumble “brushed his girls’ ho-hair every Sunday morning”
14:37 stumble “he never f...spends a free hour”
16:14 minor word wrong “answered his smile on call” should be “and call”
Thanks very much for the detailed notes! I've uploaded an updated the portion of chapter 3 that fixes those places. I have a long weekend, so I'll try to take time to fix up some of those stumbles in chapter 6, as well as doing the other chapters I'm signed up for.

Thank you very much! Chapter 3 is spot check PL okay now! Looking forward to listening to your other chapters, you have a very nice voice.

I'll read chapter 24 if you like. This is only my third project, so I'm still learning. :)
