Note to recorder:

Preferably British accent. Natural speed. Please, mark a slight pause after each period.

Summary of the Webquest about Sherlock Holmes:

Sherlock Holmes was a famous sleuth.
He never really existed. His character was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
He lived at 221b Baker Street with his flatmate Dr. Watson.
Sherlock Holmes’s first story is entitled "A Study in Scarlet".

The story takes place during the reign of Queen Victoria, in the 19th century; at the same period when Jack the Ripper would strangle prostitutes in the borough of Whitechapel, London. The criminal was never arrested.

Thanks Jo_W. I would love to have someone read it with a British accent though so I'm putting the recording back in the queue.

Oh, I see. Understandable. :) I'm afraid I can't carry much of a good British accent, or I would try to do that too. hehe

Don't worry. It's perfect. If someone British did happen to come accross my request, that would be great... if not, your recording's great.
