Thank you! Please go ahead, then, and PL Act I. Let me know what you think. I'm open to any and all criticism. I'll see if there's anything special I'm supposed to do as the BC to officially designate you as the DPL. --Joshua

When this book is finally added to the LV catalog your "display name" will be your username. Most people choose to display a name different from their username. For example my username is craigdav1 but my display name is DaveC. Would you like a different display name?

Section 1 was a great listen. Here are just a couple notes:
7:02 You said “Scene 2: Glanville, Ragozin, and Isabella” but no where in the text does it say that. Instead it goes directly from “enter Ragozin” to “Glanville: what new’s”. I don't know if this is an issue with my copy of the text but I figured I would point it out just in case.

23:08 “Cleone” was said very quietly.

29:20 There is a small click noise that interrupts the 5 seconds of silence at the end.

Thank you!
Good catch. If you look at p. 17, you'll see it says "SCENE III," but there was no such "SCENE II" to be found. The title was apparently omitted by the printer in 1792. So I researched another version to discover that Ragozin's entrance marked the beginning of Scene II and took the liberty of speaking it for the sake of future listeners who might otherwise think we'd skipped a scene.

I will fix the other 2 things and resubmit.

Here is a revised Act I per your corrections. The duration is still 29:22.
I removed the click in the last 5 seconds of silence.
However, the soft "Cleone" at 23:08 is intentional. To avoid any ambiguity of who is speaking, I have chosen to softly "label" each character's lines with a soft enunciation of the character's name (as written in the text), and this occurrence of "Cleone" is one such label of the line which follows. I deliberately make these labels soft so as to distinguish them from the line itself.

Do you think my vocal distinctions are sufficient to avoid this practice?

Ok I figured it was just an issue with text since there was a scene 3 but no scene 2, but I wanted to make sure.

I noticed how you were distinguishing the character lines by saying their names quieter and I thought this was effective and that you should continue to do it throughout the other acts. However, the one time at 23:08 I thought "Cleone" was too quiet, and so I think it should just be slightly louder.

As DPL you should be able to open the MW by clicking on "BC Admin" just below the MW. You can then change the file status to PL OK from the choices in the dropdown menu.

Thanks. I will fix it.
