Hi Clara, welcome to librivox :D All of your tech specs are correct. You can start recording for projects if you like. however, you do have some background noise which could be lessened using noise removal.

Re: Test Reading, please conside

Hi Edward, welcome to Librivox :D

All tech specs are correct and you're sounding great. You're okay to record for projects.

Just be aware that while the volume is good where it is, it is on the higher end of Librivox requirements. Be sure not to have recordings any louder than this
