Hi there

My name is Luke and I'll taking over your test today.

A few things to fix

1) Volume: We need 86-92dB with 89dB being ideal. Your at 93.7 (so close!) this is what we need to do
Select the whole file in audacity
Go to effects>amplify
Type 19 in the top box
Hit apply
(You may want to turn up the volume slider in audacity so that you don't have to amplify every time)

2) Noise Reduction: Next up lets reduce your noise. It was at 30 but now it is at 49 (which is quite loud)
Select a small amount of your file with no talking in it
Go to effect>noise reduction
Click learn
After that go back and select the whole file
Head back over to that Noise Reduction page
Click apply


After that please repost the test. I'll be back to have another look.

Hello Luke,

I made the edits and ran it through the checker and I got a pass. Let me know if I did it right this time. Thank you for your help and giving me step by step instructions. This is all confusing to me.
