this is section 19 of the anthology.
hello,

welcome at librivox - and thank you for your ambition to volunteer!
you started with the disclaimer intro and the first lines of your claim - that is rare but interesting: thank you for this reading!

unfortunately, your file doesn't meet our technical requirements in 3 aspects, but that is easy to solve:
:!: The bit rate should be 128 kbps.  
:!: The recording should be in mono sound, not stereo sound.  
:!: The volume falls outside of the target range (86–92 dB).

do you now our wiki-page 123 audacity?
there is a short tutorial to set mono in the preferences - that is, if you are using audacity?
(all of this you will find at some point of the wiki page, also)

the second step is one, which will solve two of your problems at once:
when exporting your file to mp3, choose these settings as shown on my screenshot:

so, these steps are done within a few seconds, the next one is the average volume of the file.
your file has 79,2 db. we aim for 89db, with a range of +/- 3db.

--> to meter the average volume of your file, you can use
:idea: checker (a technical analysis tool, which was made for lv specifically).
calculate the difference between 89-(checker metered volume)= the value, you have to amplify your file.
please, in audacity: menue bar "effects", choose amplify and enter the value there (or use the switch)
:idea: ReplayGain is a plugin for audacity, which calculates the difference between 89db and your files volume and gives you the value to enter into the amplify effect.

--> to amplify in audacity, please:
:idea: in the menue bar, choose effects > choose amplify > in the amplify window, enter the value you calculated (see above), hit ok - and it is done!

so, a minute of work, in 4 steps, and audacity will have the settings preset...
and your file will be pl ok!

please, reupload your file with the correct specs and post here, again :-)

cheers,
schrm
