Welcome at LibriVox, Mary L. :)

It is nice to hear a different text :)

Your voice sounded a bit tinny, did you use noise reduction? -
The tech specs are all ok, only before you submit the test you should edit the file so that it has five seconds of silence at the end of the recording. You can copy & paste a piece of silence or you can go to Generate - Silence; in the pulldown-menu you'll find the option hh:mm:ss (or so), then you can adjust the seconds very precise but it doesn't sound that natural.

I did use noise reduction, I'm trying to figure it out. I'll remember to keep more silence at the end, thank you.

It usually is better to leave just a little bit of noise; the standard numbers of Audacity are a good value to start with.

And just to make sure - you are ready to record :) I somehow missed to write that clearly I think, now, that I read my post again :oops:
