Re: 1-Minute Test Completed

Yes, the -24 dB is what I set the silences to. The sound would be too much if I didn’t silence it. I’m doing what I can with the equipment I have and the equipment I can afford. I will be giving someone’s suggestions a try within the next 2 days and I will see if my audio sounds better. I will be re...

I got rid of the hissing sound between the times I did not speak. I actually put the amplification to -24 dB. Hopefully the background sounds way better! Thank you

Re: 1-Minute Test Completed

I sent a message to GeraldAMoe who is using a chromebook as well. I am giving his suggestions a try. I went back to Test 4, and when I highlighted the end, the highest number of the amplification gain goes up to 24 dB. Will that number be enough?

Re: 1-Minute Test Completed

Yes I do have a computer, but it is a hp chromebook, and it does not support audacity or Linux. That’s the only reason why I downloaded and paid for the TwistedWave App on my IPhone to complete recordings from there.

Re: 1-Minute Test Completed

It is possible that it is the phone. However, I tried it on the iPhone 6s and my iPhone XR, and the background noise is still present. I haven't damaged my phone, so I'm not sure what the issue is. I'm hoping I can start recording in a week or even sooner.

Here you go! I followed the instructions from the video you made and I had set the normalize setting to 0 then back to -4. There is still the same background noise, but it is better when I am closer to the mic.

I’m really not sure what the hissing sound is in the background. I’m in a quiet room and there is no extra noises around me. Hopefully this is better.

HELP WITH AUDIO RECORDING APPS FOR CHROMEBOOKS!!!

Hello, I went to the Audacity website, and there are no downloads for Chromebooks. I looked up if there was a way for Chromebooks to download Audacity through a crossover app. There was one feature on certain Chromebooks that had Linux, but my Chromebook does not have Linux. I searched online for ot...

Hey! New here!

Hi! I am a new volunteer here. I am doing this as one of the steps to receive a scholarship. I do like to read though, and I wanted to volunteer places for some time, but with the virus spreading, it became harder to volunteer in person. So, this is a great opportunity for me to engage in different ...
