This was made using GarageBand on a mac, with a USB microphone.

I know there's a slight background hum, but they said to submit the raw file without background noise reduction, so...

Thank you!

Hi macbethlady,

welcome here at LibriVox.

Very clear and understandable reading :thumbs:

Bitrate at 128 kbps, Sample rate at 44100 Hz, Mono, that's all fine :thumbs: Volume is just inside the range, that's ok, just don't get any louder.

There is some noise, yes. I did a light brush in Audacity and it was better than. I can't help you with Garage Band though, but I trust you that you can do it as you already noticed it :)

I noticed that the fields of the metadata are filled in. Usually they are just kept free meanwhile; sometimes a BC requests certain fields but the comment field is free always afair. Please keep an eye on this. But I trust you that you can handle this.

Hop over and claim Kitterland; I saw that afutterer didn't sign you up yet.

This test can be marked as ok

I don't know what metadata is, but I'll look into it. Thank you. :-)

Metadata is the information about the file that either you or the program adds. Things such as Title, Author, Comments, etc.

It's not a big deal. :)
