Hello LibriVox! I've attached a link to my short test. I'd love any feedback that any one has time to give me. I'm a first-time narrator :shock: using Mac OS, Adobe Audition, and an analog Rode Mic. Thanks ahead of time for any feedback and help to get me up and running to read For LibriVox!

Hi and welcome to Librivox. Your reading is great there are just some edits needed please. I am not able to advise on how to make the changes as I am not familiar with the program you are using.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps. When you export the file change ‘quality’ to 128kbps.

The volume is 71dB which is too low. We aim for between 86-92 dB but ideally we would like it to be at 89 dB.
If you like you can use the checker tool to verify volume and other settings.

Please could you carry out the edits then upload the file using the same file name. If you need any more help please just ask. Thanks
