Hello everyone, this is my first post here but I’m a contributor from July. I have some big questions/doubts so I sent @mhenretty an email asking for help. He told me to post here the questions so we can all discuss about them:
Should I pronounce the punctuation of the sentences (eg full stop, comma, colon, slash and so on)? So far I validated audio where people didn’t pronounce them and I didn’t pronounce them in mine, too. I think many other volunteers did the same. What can we do?
Another question, sometimes sentences are too long compared to the time available to read them and people often read them badly by jumping words. Is it possible to extend the time available to read these sentences?
Last question: the written sentences sometimes have errors, which the reader corrects in the audio. Technically this reading is wrong because what was read is not the same of what is written, but from the point of view of grammar and syntax rules the sentence pronounced is correct. In these cases, how do we behave? I think there should be a button to report writing errors in sentences. What do you think?
Thank you for your help!
