Just uploaded mine. 1:25 Any creative criticism would be appreciated since this is my first try at any of this : )
Hi Courtney, I believe this is your reading... :D (Found it!)

You must copy / paste the link that appears in the uploader (after the green upload bar is finished) :wink:
Your reading is good, the volume is a bit high at 95.0 dB, we need around 89 dB. *
Your DC Bias is quite high at +27, this a problem with some computers, no one knows why. I don't know what recording software you are using, but your file should be Normalized to bring this down.
There is a phrase that is tripping up a few readers this week! at 0:16 you've read "All felled, felled, all are felled;" text reads "All felled, felled, are all felled;" you may wish to correct this. :wink:

*You should aim for your wave forms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

You can check your volume using our Checker program - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume in decibels on the Information tab. For your information, we look for around 89 dB (87-91 is OK)

**Please let me know under what name would you like to appear in the LV catalog and if you have one, we can put your personal URL link on your catalog page too.
You can view your brand new LV Catalog page by clicking your forum name in the Magic Window.
: D Wow that was awesome quick. Thanks so much for finding it and thanks for the feedback. Most of that I think I can fix. I may have to do some reading on what dc bias is but I like learning about this stuff so I guess I have a new project.

Hi David. I am back after a very long respite. I took a stab at this poem. I hope it has turned out well. My updated Audacity is a little unfamiliar (I hate change) so I hope it is ok.

Hope all is well with you.

Nice choice, Kevin! I'll bet this project has an even more diverse range of interpretations than usual.
