Hi Mark

Welcome to Librivox.

Your recording sounded fine and you have a pleasant voice and delivery. Volume level was good and there was no significant background noise.

However specifications were not quite correct:
Bit rate should be 128 kbs constant - yours was 106 kbs variable.

To check your audio you can use the free Checker programme:

Please adjust the specifications and reupload your recording.

Cheers

I believe the Bit Rate should be fixed now.

Thank you!
