This one-minute test was posted on the Short Nonfiction Collection thread. Would someone please listen and help Laurie out. According to Checker, her volume is a little low.
Thanks,
Sue, BC, Short Nonfiction Collection

Hi and welcome to Librivox. Your reading is great there are just some edits needed please. If you are using Audacity you can do the following.

The volume is 83dB which is too low. We aim for between 86-92 dB but ideally we would like it to be at 89 dB.
In Audacity you will also find the option to amplify under 'effects'.

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
