Nice reading! I like how you make the dialogues more vivid!

Only one note for this recording, at the beginning around 0:23 "Chapter 23" is repeated. You can delete one and keep the other, whichever you prefer!

Hi Stav,

It's 25:34 long.

No, I'd like to try a different book to see which genre of books I'm comfortable reading. I've already placed a claim request. Thank you

Best

Hi Stav,

Here's chapter 25:

Best,

Hi Aditya! The reading itself is fine; nice and lively, it makes it interesting to follow the action. However I think the sound quality could improve.
Actually the first few seconds of the intro sound great and clear, and then it changes after 0:14 becoming too loud with a lot of background noise.
So if you remember what settings you used for the first seconds, you should keep those. :thumbs:
In the intro, right after 0:14 you repeat the sentence "For more information, etc" and spell librivox.org, but I don't think that it is necessary. You can delete that. And add the missing "For God And Gold, by Julian Stafford Corbett . Chapter 25", just before the main text starts. At the end, there are a few minutes of silence, but 5 seconds are needed, so you can shorten the end silence.
Let us know if you need any help with editing :D

Hi Rapunzelina,

I addressed the introduction part, added the 'chapter 25 of For God and Gold' after the intro, and addressed the volume part. But I don't know what to do about the background noise. The chapter, introduction, and the conclusion were all recorded on separate dates. That's probably why there's the difference.

Here's the updated file:

If you could help me on eliminating that background noise in the chapter reading, that would be really amazing

Best,
Aditya

Hi Aditya! Thank you for addressing the edits. What is missing is "For God And Gold, by Julian Stafford Corbett. Chapter 25" (book title, author name, chapter title). Will you be able to add it just before the main text? I think the easiest way to do it is to record the phrase in a separate file, and then copy and paste it where you want it in the original file.
The ending silence is now correct and the volume is good :thumbs:
About the background noise, this kind of noise is not easy to eliminate once recorded; it sounds like environment noises (like bumps, traffic, other people, etc) I mentioned it so it's something to take care of in future recordings. Try to make your environment as quiet as possible. :D
One last thing, when you upload again, check that your filename ends with _128kb (instead of _128kbps)
Thank you!
