Larry, When you export the audio file, do not add the .mp3 to the file name, it is automatically added by Audacity. This is why .mp3 appears twice :wink: (I've changed the filename in the Magic Window)
You have section 101.

Here are a few notes for you:

The volume, at 91.6 is at the upper limit of our range, but still within parameters. You might try to get closer to the 89dB target. Your recording would also benefit from some basic noise reduction which can be done easily in Audacity. Neither of these are absolutely necessary, just comments to improve the quality of your recording.

You will, however need to change the intro and "outro." Here are the instructions from the initial post for recording these:

START of recording (Intro)
["Chapter [number] of The Ontario Readers: Fourth Book. Recorded for LibriVox.org by [your name]" (If you do not wish to say your name in the recording, you can just say "Recorded for LibriVox.org")
Say: "[Title of Chapter]"

END of recording
At the end of the section, say:
"End of Chapter [number]. This recording is in the public domain"

So, you would start your recording with, "Chapter 94 . . . . and end the intro with "The Glove and The Lions,"
then the reading of the piece.

The outro would be: "End of Chapter 94. This recording is in the public domain"

When you've done the changes, upload it again with the same name, then post a note here with the new running time.

ETA: NOTES for SECT 84

See above for the intro and outro. Just follow the format given there.

There is a loud click both at the beginning and end that needs to be clipped out.

The "silence" at the end is too long. Trim it down to 5 seconds. Also, there is a lot of noise in that space. Since the entire recording would benefit from noise reduction in Audacity, you could use that as your noise sample.

Don't worry; these technical things and the format get easier as you go along. And, when you can get a better recording environment, it will be even better.
