Hi, the link for the one minute test is: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/1_minute_test.mp3.

I recorded using Audacity on Windows using a USB Blue Snowball microphone, let me know if it sounds alright.

-Thanks

A nice recording, though it has some technical difficulties.

First, the volume is way too low. Please lift it by a good 24dB.

Also, LibriVox recordings need to be produced or exported at a constant bit rate of 128kbps and as a mono recording.

Please let me know if you need help with this. I will double check the tech specs once you've re-recorded.

You've got it!

Your recording passes all the technical tests. The one comment I would make is that the background noise is loud. No need to submit a third test if you know how cleaning audio is done. If you want help with that, though, just holler. I will be glad to help.
