Sorry everyone, time got away from me over the weekend :oops:

Thank you Tara, April and Lee Ann. :thumbs:

Good readings Jeff and Sarah, but you both need to add some ending silence in your files for the the required 5 seconds. :wink:

Good readings Britannia And Ratan :thumbs:

Ratan, your volume should be a bit louder, your file measures at 86 db :wink:

Dear David,

Thank you very much for the feedback.

Which software do you use to measure the dB level? Please let me know.

Dear David,

On googling for the above, I came across MP3 gain. Is it the right software for the job - to increase the dB levels of the mp3 files. Please let me know.

Thank you so much Aradlaw ! :)


Ratan, mp3gain is pretty useful to determine the dB level of a recording. But you need Audacity to increase it (Go to "effects" -> "amplify" and then just enter the number of decibels by which you want to increase your recording).
Hope it helps.

Britannia

There's a small program the spouse of a LibriVoxer developed to check the tech settings. If you're game, you can download it and use it to check the volume and other settings. It's here: http://cgjennings.ca/checker/

Use the Experimental-0.9 alpha version. 

View the YouTube demo video here...

Apparently MP3Gain does not actually amplify the file, but tells certain MP3 players to amplify the file.
