Here is the link to my recording of section 2-
https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/stateoftheunion_1934_1945_2_various_128kb.mp3

This is my first recording :D
You did a GREAT job! Thank you.

Let me know if you have any questions about the PL notes or how to make the changes.

0:57 – word change - The Constitution wisely provides that the Chief Executive shall report to the Congress on the state of the Union, for through you, the chosen legislative representatives, our citizens everywhere may fairly judge the progress of our governing.
Recorded as process

5:19 stumble - But we do assert that the ambition of the individual to obtain for him and his a proper security, a reasonable leisure, and a decent living throughout life, is an ambition to be preferred to the appetite for great wealth and great power.

15:05 word change (7) Effort should be made to locate projects where they will serve the greatest unemployment needs as shown by present relief rolls, and the broad program of the National Resources Board should be freely used for guidance in selection.
Recorded as benefits.

-The section could use a touch of noise cleaning.

-The volume is too high at 95.2 dB. We aim for 89dB with an allowable range of 86-92dB. Please amplify by -5 or -6.

-When you upload again please change the file name for a two digit section number; 02.

I also finished recording section 5

Another great job. Just a couple of words likely cut during editing.
8:28 missing text - Third, to place the primary responsibility directly on the farmers themselves, under the principle of majority rule, so that they may decide, with full knowledge of the facts of surpluses, scarcities, world markets and domestic needs, what the planting of each crop should be in order to maintain a reasonably adequate supply which will assure a minimum adequate price under the normal processes of the law of supply and demand.
That means adequacy of supply but not glut.

10:36 missing text - It has been my thought that, especially during these past five years, this Nation has grown away from local or sectional selfishness and toward national patriotism and unity.

Here at LV we don’t correct for pronunciation. There was a recurring word in your reading that you consistently mispronounced. I understood what you were trying to say and there are no corrections to be made but I thought you might like to hear the correct pronunciation for future use. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/expenditures

I also finished recording section 6

https://librivox.org/uploads/linny/stateoftheunion_1934_1945_06_various_128kb.mp3
So close!
3:50 repeat – Our people and our resources are pledged to secure that protection. From that determination no American flinches.

This section needs a bit of noise cleaning.

This section is a bit too loud at 93.1dB. Please amplify by -4dB.

Here is a new pronunciation word for you. Prejudice https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/prejudice

-Justforfun
1:11 – stumble - that we shall not repeat the excesses of the wild twenties when this Nation went for a joy ride on a roller coaster which ended in a tragic crash.
2:18 – Repeat - I wish to say that Mr. Churchill, and Marshal Stalin, and General Issimo Chiang Kai-shek are all thoroughly conversant with the provisions of our Constitution.
4:38 – computer alert in the background - Freedom from fear is eternally linked with freedom from want.
5:03 word change - It has been shown time and again that if the standard of living of any country goes up, so does its purchasing power—
Recorded as grows
6:04 word change - if only they are given the chance to know what is required of them.
Recorded as show
6:29 stumble - They have come to look upon the war primarily as a chance to make profits for themselves at the expense of their neighbors
8:01 stumble - Increased wages or prices will each in turn produce the same results.
9:10 word change - luxury as usual these are the influences which can undermine the morale of the brave men ready to die at the front for us here.
Recorded as of
10:05 repeat - more than a thousand airplanes that could have been made and should have been made were not made.
11:08 stumble - and not with half-an-eye on the battlefronts abroad and the other eye-and-a-half on personal, selfish, or political interests here at home.
I believe you may have uploaded your unedited version. I stopped Pling. Let me know if you want me to continue Pling this version.
Please note there is only ~2 seconds of ending silence. ~5 seconds is needed. Also, this track should be noise cleaned.
Thank Your for your Feedback!

I will correct the issues and send an improved recording at the latest by this weekend.
