Is there a way I can make it clearer? It seems to be troubling without a narrator. :hmm:
Hello Linny,

There are some things that are unclear to me. As the reader of the intro, do I also do the
"stage directions" - i.e., include the text under the dialogue number.
It's the intro and the MW title (which is generally the text under the dialogue number).
And do I read the names of those participating before the start of the dialogue.
No, I'll edit in the voice credits instead.
In at least one of my lines I noticed that there were stage directions, for example like that on p150, Pluto's line. Should I also
read these in "stage direction" style?
No, thank you. If it's really needed I can always record those. There are very few through the entire project. I think with your reading two characters in the dialogue that is more than enough.

Please do remember to say end of dialogue # at the end.

Thanks for the instruction, Linny. All is now clear.

For what it's worth, I had thought the MW title was just "Dialogue x", and the "plus intro" referred to the longer librivox
intro, not the intro in the text under dialogue x. Shows what a wonderfully ambiguous language we have :0).


Best Regards,
Adrian

ugh! Again, I'm sorry. I'm trying to stay consistent with how the other projects for this book were done. This is the first project I've started and apparently I'm confusing the issue. I added an example to the initial post. Maybe that will help others. Thank you for all of your efforts in helping me sort this out. :9:

Don't apologize, Linny. I'm thankful to you for doing this work.
My experience with volunteers is that precisely those who would benefit from reading the instructions are those that won't until too late - and that includes me :0(..

Adrian

There was a small repeat in the first line but it was an easy edit so I took care of it. Menippus is PL OK! Thank you. :D

May I add Antilochus in dialogue 15?
You have Herakles listed in MW for 15 but the other character seems to be Achilleus.

PS: I could PL some of the complete sections if you let me know when any are ready :)
