One Minute Test [OK]

My uploaded test: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/one_minute_test.mp3
Audacity
USB microphone

It was only at 60 dB raw, so I took a stab at editing it first. I used Noise Reduction, Equalization, Compressor, & Normalize in that order. Please let me know if the recording needs more work.
Thanks!!
