Hi Jonathan
Very nice reading. Just a couple of technical things to address.

Your volume is low. It comes in at 79.3dB and we look for 89dB, with a leeway of 86-92 usually acceptable. I'm not familiar with your software, but it should be easy enough to amplify your file.

The other issue is the bit rate: it is showing at 192kbps and we need it at 128. Again, this should be an easy fix, and the good thing is that once changed, it stays put until you change it.

Try fixing those two issues and re-upload with the same file name in this thread and we'll have you on your way in next to no time :thumbs:

Thank you, Lynnet.

I've upped the dB and reduced the bit rate. Here you go! https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_joldsworth.mp3

Let me know how that sounds.

Thanks,
Jonathan
