Hi LibriVox Volunteers!

Please help me review my 1-minute test recording: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_elizaj.mp3

Here's my setup:

1. Software - Audacity

2. Mic - internal laptop mic
The external mics I have on hand are all analog. When I tested them with my computer, they have all produced a lower sound quality than the internal mic, so that is what I used.

3. Operating System - Win10
I have a HP Pavilion laptop, running Windows-10 Home Edition.

Thanks for your help!

Hi my name is Luke and looks like you stuck with me for the fixing of your test :mrgreen:

1 quick edit

Volume: We need 86-92dB with 89dB being ideal. Your at 93.6 (so close!) this is what we need to do
Select the whole file in audacity
Go to effects>amplify
Type -5 in the top box
Hit apply

After that reupload your test and post the new link here. I'll back to have another look
