Hi everyone!

I gave the one minute test a try. Please let me know what needs to be fixed!

Welcome! Your test sounds very nice. :) There are a just couple of settings you'll need to change. Specifically, your bit rate is wrong. The bit rate on this test is variable. It should be constant at 128 kbps. You didn't mention what software you are using to record, but if you have Audacity, like many of us, this is very easy to fix during the Export step.

Check out the instructions under "Configure," here. Then export your test again, using those settings. Finally, upload the new mp3 file and post the link in this thread for a final check.

Thank you so much for replying! I am using Audacity so thank you for the link :) . I redid the export and changed the bit rate to constant at 128kbps. Please let me know if everything is correct now.

Yes, everything checks out now! You can go browse the Readers Wanted forums to find something you'd like to read. Have fun! :D
