Hello,

This is my 1 minute test to begin recording for LibriVox. I am using the application TwistedWave on my Chromebook (running on Chrome OS) and a USB microphone. Here is the link: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/Minute_Test_Edited.mp3


Thank you!

Hi Christine!

Welcome to Librivox!

Thanks so much for your recording - it is good! It just needs a bit of noise cleaning and once you do that you will need to increase the volume of your voice a little bit. I do not know how to noise clean or how to increase the volume in TwistedWave. I do know that you have a spike in your recording - you can see it if you look at the display of the waves that might hinder you increasing your volume so you might want to get rid of that spike first. Also, when editing our work prior to submission we try and get rid of snuffles and loud breathing noises - you do have one in the middle of this recording.

So a couple of things for you to look at. Please just reply to this thread when you have them fixed and I will listen again!

You are really close!

Lynda

It's ok! It was only a couple of days, and I took a while to edit it.

Thank you so much!!
