Section 14 SEE PL NOTES

16:17 - “那人答道” was omitted
31:19 - “四根破柳竿子支著” 支 was read as 撐
52:24 - second notification sound (the first one isn’t as obvious and it can’t be edited out easily anyway, so I’ll let that pass!).

Intriguing story indeed. For a moment I was actually incredulous that the heroine was to be found so easily - and there we have a plot twist again!
Great reading, Tina! It really enhanced my audio experience with the novel.
Thank you, Yuqing, for the catches. Apparently, I still need to work on my eye, hearing and brain coordination!! All places have been updated. Take care.

Section 15 SEE PL NOTES

12:00 - “天下十七省” 七 was read as 三
36:11 - “還要算英雄隊裡一個領袖” was read as “……的一個領袖”

I’d say everything else is actually perfectly read.
Our future listeners will really love the way you switch between different characters!
Cheers,
Yuqing :D

Hello, Yuqing,

I've corrected the 2 places. Please take a listen.

It's fun to do "voice acting" and I have certainly been "learning on the job". Getting ready to find out how 十三妹 is going to "tame" 鄧九公。。。。。。。。。。。

Section 16 SEE PL NOTES

41:14 - “他認得字” 認 was read as 識
47:12 - “更兼他那位賢郎又是如此如此” 郎 was read as 良
48:01 - “不然的時候” 時候 was read as 話


Also when I fed the file through the Checker app, it throws an error saying that “Recordings should not be longer than 60 minutes”.
Can you look into this? Thanks!

P.S. And I thought there were enough plot twists already!
I must control my impulse to read on before you upload your next recording :lol:
Cheers,

Thanks for the review. I'll work on the recording shortly.

I wonder if MaryAnn sees posts here. Let me try. MaryAnn, I'm not clear on this 60 minute length requirement. Section 16 here is about 4 minutes over an hour. I hope 60 minutes is only a guideline, not a hard rule. This novel was written with 40 chapters, so to speak, each with its opening and closing verses. I hesitate to break it up. As we move forward, I suspect that there may be additional instances of lengthy chapters. What do you recommend? Another not very appetizing option is for me to go through the section to "shave" these extra minutes off the reading. Looking forward to your advice.

Thanks.

Hello .... yes, I follow the thread. :wink:

The maximum length is about 74 minutes, and I don't remember why that is or what happens if you go over, but you are not anywhere close to that, so no need to break up the section. Hopefully that gives you a cushion for the longer sections ....
