Re: Multilingual Short Work Collection 003 - hok

Hello Hokuspokus, Your response has made me happy! I found something else for the collection, and it's ready for PL! Section 05 'The Tragedy of the Sioux' by Chief Standing Bear (1868/1869-1939) Text: http://gutenberg.ca/ebooks/standingbearl-tragedyofthesioux/standingbearl-tragedyofthesioux-00-h.htm...

Re: Multilingual Short Work Collection 003 - hok

Cool, thank you! I don't have anything else lined up, but for future reference, is there an upper limit on the number of contributions per collection per reader? Some of the Librivox collections have a cap (like the three poems per reader in the monthly poetry collections), and others don't. There a...

Re: solo [ENGLISH] Green Grey Homestead by Steele Rudd - hok

Hi Anna,

I wanted to post to let you know that I'll out of office at the end of the month and in early May. If you have anything, by all means upload it, I just won't PL until I'm back.

Bravo! All PL OK. Your changes are seamless, too.

This is a terrific book, and I'm very glad you chose it to record. I hope it finds many listeners all over the world, as it absolutely deserves it.

Re: solo [ENG] The Diary of a Provincial Lady by EM Delafield - cori

This has been such a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for letting me PL! Section 12 is PL OK, and beyond OK. I have two notes for section 11: 4.55-5.02, pronunciation of Teignmouth (this one is me being really fussy!): Just as we get to its being well known that Mr. W. once threw hand-painted plate ...

This is a delight to listen to, and I'm sorry there are only two sections remaining. Section 9 and 10 are brilliant. I have three very short notes for section 8 for you to weigh up: 2.37-2.40.

Section 7 is PL OK. I've got a couple of notes for your consideration for section 6: At 0.33-0.36: £1 9s. [I heard 7s.] 6d. At 10.29-10.32, double check the pronunciation of circuitously: I circuitously approach the topic of Barbara. https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/circuitously The whol...

Re: solo [ENG] The Diary of a Provincial Lady by EM Delafield - cori

The plot continues apace. I don't know what Robert will say to her when she gets back from London! Sections 4 and 5 are PL OK. I have one note for section 3, and, as with everything else, I'll leave you to make the call. The thing I noticed was at 23.05-23.07: ...(whose son plays the violin [heard '...

Re: solo [ENG] The Diary of a Provincial Lady by EM Delafield - cori

Hi Cori, Section 2 is very good, and I'm so glad that you've introduced me to Delafield. I have a couple of PL notes. This is an opportunity to work on what level of PLing you'd like. If these are too stringent, do say so. I don't want you to wince whenever I post in the thread. At 6.25-6.29, double...

Re: solo [ENG] ~ The Diary of a Provincial Lady by EM Delafield - cori

Good evening! Section 1 is fab. I've marked it PL OK, although I'll note one small thing - the intro omits 'Legamus'. I think there is slightly greater flexibility with the disclaimers here than at Librivox, though I'm willing to be corrected on that point! What a fun chapter. I am sorry that I'll n...

Hi Cori, If you'd like me to DPL, I'd be quite willing. As we've not worked together before, I'll let you know what you're in for! A specific thing - I'll be away from my desk in late April and early May, which I mention just in case you'd like the project to be catalogued quickly. General stuff: if...

Re: Where can we find book texts to read for legamus.eu?

I wanted to put this site down for possible inclusion. It's Colonial Australian Popular Fiction: A Digital Archive, and it's hosted by the University of Melbourne: http://www.apfa.esrc.unimelb.edu.au/home.html These are scans, or least the ones that I've looked at are. There is some overlap with PGA...

I'm sorry I haven't been on! Yes, the cover is fine, and better than fine! It's very stylish, and actually a lot nicer than this book of bad poetry! Thank you so much, Basquetteur!

The bit rate has been sorted, and sections 0-4 all look within normal volume range, bit rate and the rest of it. With section 4, the download link has become a little bit jumbled at the beginning.

I hope he's okay, too. Are you using Audacity? I'm using the most recent version, and I'll tell you how I go about it and see if any of this looks familiar.
