Hi everyone! Hello Ken! In the first step, I recorded the audio files with Ubuntu 7.04.  Then I checked those audio files under Windows XP with Dragon Naturally Speaking 9 Preferred.  About the half of those audio files were OK, and I recorded the rest another time.

The audio files that I recorded with Ubuntu are a bit louder and a bit noisier than the audio files recorded under Windows XP.  It is the same noise canceling headset and the same on board audio sound, because it is one computer with two different operating systems (Ubuntu and Windows XP).

I think this might be interesting for you to know that it is possible to check your own WAV audio files with DNS 9 Preferred. Cool

vf15-07 Now Irvine was a man of impulse, a poet
vf15-08 He was just bursting with joy, joy over what
vf15-09 At Lake Linderman I had one canoe, very good Peterborough canoe
vf15-10 Behind him lay the thousand-years-long road across all Siberia and Russia
vf15-11 He had forgotten to build a fire and thaw out
vf15-12 I never saw anything like her in my life
vf15-13 There was no law on the Yukon save what they made for themselves
vf15-14 Good business man, Curly, O'Brien was saying
vf15-15 There weren't any missions, and he was the man to know
vf15-16 And the big Persian knew of his existence before he did of hers
vf15-17 Once the jews harp began emitting its barbaric rhythms, Michael was helpless
vf15-18 But we'll just postpone this
vf15-19 There was the Emma Louisa
vf15-20 This is my fifth voyage
vf15-21 Gad, do I remember it
vf15-22 You got out by fighting, and I through a pretty girl
vf15-23 I can see that knife now
vf15-24 When I can't see beauty in woman I want to die
vf15-25 His slim fingers closed like steel about Philip's
vf15-26 He seized Gregson by the arm and led him to the door
vf15-27 Hear the Indian dogs wailing down at Churchill
vf15-28 Burke himself had criticized it because of the smile
vf15-29 I'd say there was going to be a glorious scrap
vf15-30 He turned the map to Gregson, pointing with his finger
vf15-31 His eyes never took themselves for an instant from his companion's face
vf15-32 Something that Whittemore had not yet said thrilled him
vf15-33 Lakes and rivers, hundreds of them, thousands of them
vf15-34 Whitefish, Gregson, whitefish and trout
vf15-35 They robbed me a few years later
vf15-36 He chuckled as he pulled out his pipe and began filling it
vf15-37 Everything was working smoothly, better than I had expected
vf15-38 I was completely lost in my work
vf15-39 His slim hands gripped the edges of the table
vf15-40 He made no reply as he waited for Whittemore to continue
