Dear Tyler,
heartfelt congratulations, having the recitation sound files there is
fantastic, and I really appreciate the work that must have gone into this.
Indirectly, I am grateful to the people who did the recitations and granted
permission for their use.
One extension that I would be happy to see would be a facility to listen to
available recitations of a particular metre without first entering a stanza
of that metre and getting it recognised. (Or am I missing something?) The
metre list at https://www.skrutable.info/reciters might serve as a starting
point for this.
Incidentally, is there a reason why you use śārdūlavikrīḍitā instead of
Best wishes,
