I'm using Audacity 2.4.2. on a Mac.

Well done on sorting out all the technical stuff the first time around! You're sounding good :)

I'm happy to OK your test the way it is. If you'd like to sound a little bit crisper, you could pass it once through the noise reduction effect in Audacity. This is how:
Select a few seconds of background noise only (no speech) and click Effect | Noise Reduction | Get Profile. Then select the whole recording (Ctrl+A), click Effect | Noise Reduction again, and use settings:

Noise Reduction: 10 dB
Sensitivity: 6
Frequency smoothing (bands) 6

and click OK.

You can test it and see if you prefer it the way you have it now, or with one passing of the noise reduction. I consider it optional for your test :)

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! I've edited the original recording with the noise reduction like you suggested :)
