Section 44 PL notes:
So glad I got to PL another one of your sections; your voice is perfect for this book. The waveform looks OK in Audacity and the volume is within range. The only issue is that 5 full seconds of silence needed at end of file (currently <1 second). Please edit and re-upload using the same filename. Include the new duration of the file in your post, and I will spot check to make sure that the file is OK. Thanks so much.


Thank you so much! :)

Here's section 44 with the proper white space:

37:53

Section 33, Chapter X. Hungary and the Slavonic Kingdoms by Emil Reich (part 1), has been orphaned. Any takers?

Hello Kazbek,

I will take Section 33, Chapter X if it still available. I am a newb, so this will be my first recording.

Thanks,
Sebel

Hi Sebel,

Welcome to LibriVox and thanks for volunteering! :)

Since this looks like the first time you'll be assigned a section, let me know under what name (real or nickname) you would like to be credited in the catalog. We can also include a link to your personal website or blog, if you have one.

Also, please complete a 1-Minute Test before you record your first contribution. Its purpose is to ensure that your recording software and hardware is set up in accordance with LibriVox technical standards, so that you get a chance to adjust your setup without having to redo a longer recording. The instructions can be found on this wiki page:

https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

If you post a notification about your test in this thread, I can check it for you. In the meantime, I'll pencil in your claim in the Notes column.

Thanks,
Michael

Here is a revised version of section 8. Sorry about the delay:

Nate
Thank you, Nate! I appreciate the careful corrections you made! Just two more PL notes - you edited out the repeat around 11:57, but misread the sentence. The sentence is "Is it not worse to eat one's fellow-man alive, than to eat him dead?" I heard "It is not worse to eat one's fellow-man alive than to eat him dead." Your reading changes the meaning of the sentence to the opposite of what the author intended. Also, at 16:25, the word "chiefly" is still difficult to understand ("where human sacrifice was chiefly limited to infant victims"). Would you mind editing out these errors?
Hi Cadastra,

It looks like Nate isn't coming back. Could you check the quick fix I attempted? It's not perfect, but hopefully it's intelligible.

Thanks,
Michael

No problem! In that case, I'll do 60 as well.
