Hi, welcome to LibriVox! Thanks for your test. :)

Everything here looks good, settings are ok, volume is perfect!

Your voice does sound a little echo-y. This is really not a huge problem, but I mention it because it's often an easy fix. If you are recording in a place with lots of hard surfaces (say, a kitchen), and are able to move your recording setup to another room, try to find someplace with carpeting, soft surfaces, maybe curtains or something. Some people record in their closets! I'm not able to move my recording setup, so I have done this using a cardboard box, some little tiny pillows, and some push pins.

Again, this is totally optional. You are cleared to begin recording with your current setup whenever you are ready, but if you want to address the echo, it's usually not hard. :) You may also decide to begin recording with your current setup, and then move some things around later on down the road. That's your call. Go ahead and check out the Readers Wanted boards to find something you'd like to read.
