Yeah, I had to look that one up -- not part of my everyday vocabulary.
Glad you enjoyed these. :)
Thank you.

May I do the honors of taking the last unclaimed section and finishing off this delightful pescatarian morsel?

Certainly!
I've put you in for Section 33.
That makes this project fully subscribed for the moment.
I do fear that there will be some orphans, however.

Apologies for the delay! I need to rerecord section 15 (I rerecorded one bit and it didn't match, alas, so I will rerecord the whole thing) but here is section 16.

Duration 2:14

Lending a hand with the PL.
This is most excellently read and I'm glad to mark it PL OK.

I hope we will hear a lot more of your voice here in LibriVox! :9:

The Perch (1:38)

Here are the corrected uploads. I decreased the decibels by about 2 on Section 8 and added the "End of section ##) to the end of each. (Missed that part of the instructions the first time lol)
Stepping in to help.
This all check out and I've marked them PL OK.
Thanks for working on these.
Excellent recordings, so I hope we'll hear a lot more of your voice here in LibriVox! :thumbs:

Here is section 30. Please let me know if anything needs fixing!

Time [1:16]

My only comment is that the volume is just within our lower range.
Our target is 89 dB with a range of 86-92 dB, and this recording comes in at 86.3 dB.
Just something to keep in mind for future recordings. I appreciate your fine recording. I hope there will be many more. :)

======
Here are two programs that I use to adjust the volume of recordings:

1. CHECKER
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker

This little program was written specifically for LibriVox, and is very easy to use.
Just drag your file to the Checker window, and it will quickly check it for all LibriVox specifications and give you a report.

One of the measurements is the volume in decibels. Use the Amplify feature under the Effect menu in Audacity to adjust the volume, by setting the value to plus or minus to bring the recording close to the LV target of 89 dB.

2. ReplayGain
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Measuring_Volume_within_Audacity

This article will introduce you to ReplayGain, which is a plugin specifically for Audacity. There is a link to download it and a link to a tutorial on how to use it. Once installed, it is easy to use. Depending on your version of Audacity, it will appear either in the Analyze menu or the Effects menu. ReplayGain can be selected to analyze the recording, giving a reading of how many decibels, plus or minus, that the recording is off from the target. It is then easy to use the Audacity Amplify feature to make the adjustment before exporting the file.

Hi, Apologies for the delay! Here is the fixed Carp section. I took out a lot of the pauses so it's now 5:42.

https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/esculentfish_02_north_128kb.mp3

Let me know if this sounds ok. I had trouble making the re-recorded bit sound the same, even though my setup is the same, not sure why.

Thanks!
Alexandra
Just listened to this and it sounds just fine!
Very happy to mark this PL OK. You did a great job and I hope you will continue recording for LibriVox! :D

Perfect!
Thanks so much. :)

Just waiting now for the rest of the recordings to come in. Might be a couple of orphans.

Our DPL has had some tech issues, but I'll do some more of the PL if she can't get back online soon.
