Hi all, here's my 1-minute test.

I used Audacity on Windows 10, with an analog mic.

Feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hello,
Welcome to librivox. You have a nice clear voice, I had no trouble understanding you.

Congratulations - you meet librivox's technical standards. Proof Listen OK!
=============

The quality of your sound is good.

If you haven't already, you might spend some time browsing through the LibriVox Wiki. It contains a wealth of great information that you'll find useful and informative about who does what, and various technical aspects.

Then spend some time becoming
I suggest you spend some time becoming
familiar with the forum and looking for projects that you think you'd enjoy working on. Just jump right in wherever it feels comfortable. Most of all, always have fun. You'll find lots of interesting material to record. If you're like me, you'll also discover you're learning a lot in the process and being exposed to books I otherwise wouldn't have opened or known about. You'll be contributing to an interesting project and interacting with a lot of fun and varied fellow LibriVox volunteers in the process.

Thank you again for participating in Librivox
Adrian Stephens

PS - If you're interested in developing your technique, and have the time to spare, I have recorded a number of YouTube videos on this subject.
