all right, Tom, I had a look at your test, so you can start on the stage play you claimed ;)

all tech specs are correct and I love your voice :9: you also sound expressive enough, so I'm sure you will enjoy the drama section. Looking forward to meeting you over there.

The checker program gave me a warning for background noise, but it is not that disturbing, so here is your official OK.

If you wish to do a round of noise cleaning for further sections, here's how to do it in Audacity:

> select a small portion where you don't speak (usually at the end of your file)
> go to Effect - Noise Reduction
> first select Get Noise Profile
> then highlight the entire recording
> again Effect - Noise Reduction
> now select OK

You can reupload if you wish a second check, but it was good enough to my ears and you're ready to roll ! See you over in the drama section soon !

Sonia
