I just listened to 'em all via headphones - they all work. It must be
that the volume varies a lot between 'em and last night I was listening on
my laptop without headphones.

One nit that we ought to avoid "in production" - some of the samples say
"On xxx no for rejection" - to me that phrase "no for rejection" is
somewhat ambigious, does it mean that the vote was a no, meaning that it
is against adoption, i.e. a rejection, or was it a no, meaning that it was
against rejection and thus an acceptance of the proposition.

Few would hear it that later way, but we probably ought to be careful when
negatives are involved.

Maybe next time we simply ought to say "No" and "Yes" and not supplement
that with "for acceptance" or "for rejection".
