Hello LibriVox!

This is my 1 minute test.

I used Audacity on Windows 10 with a USB mic/headset.

All critiques and suggestions welcome.

hello Sophia and a warm welcome to LibriVox :)

thank you for the test. Your reading is absolutely fine and nice and easy to listen to and understand. :thumbs: That's already the best basis for good audiobooks.

Now for the technical settings we need to tweak a bit before it can be marked ok.

Your bitrate is set to variable, but we need 128 kbps constant. In Audacity this gets changed when you export to mp3. Please do the following to your current test, no need to re-record anything:

> go to File / Export Audio
> open Options in the lower right corner
> select the following settings: Bit Rate Mode: Constant / Quality: 128 kbps
> press Ok

Please reupload and post the link in this same thread, so I get notified and can have a second look.

Thanks

Sonia
