Hi, Kayla!
Thank you for your recordings.

There is, however a serious problem with them. They are both VERY low in volume. If you see your wave form, it so narrow. Section 24 comes at only 79.5 dB and 25 way down to just 75.9 dB. Our target is 89 dB with an acceptable range of 86-92 dB. You can use the Amplification feature in Audacity to bring these up closer to 89. That could bring in some distortion but should be okay.. But, you should try some adjustments to your recording set up so that the volume is better, Probably adjusting the input gain is the thing that is most needed. Bring the microphone closer could also help.

===
I use two programs for checking volume.
The first is a little program called Checker https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker, written specifically for LibriVox. Just drag a file into the Checker window to check validation on all LV specs, including a readout of actual volume in decibels. Use the Amplification feature in Audacity to bring the volume closer to the LV target of 89 dB.

The second is an Audacity plugin called ReplayGain https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Measuring_Volume_within_Audacity. Running this feature will give a value of plus or minus dB from the LV target of 89 dB, and then the Amplification feature can be used to adjust the file before exporting.
===

ALSO: For section 24, please trim the beginning silence so that it is under 1 second. Section 25 is right at the one second mark, and we'd like it to be a little less.

Section 25 also has one reading error that needs correction:
1:01 Text: "No transitory wrong" I hear something lik “transisory” whish loses the meaning of “transitory.”

Just upload your corrected files under the same file name, then post the links and file lengths here again so we can check them.

If you have question about any of this or need help, just ask. We always willing to get people off to a good start.

Currently separated from my recording setup - moving cross-country. What fun. Will check in frequently, but unable to record until mid-December.

I've assigned you Section 12.
Hint: It is always helpful claim by Section number, or at least include it.

Glad to welcome you to this project!
