Hi, my name is Ruth Eden, I look forward to your feedback on my test. I'm a true tech newbie! But I am a lifelong learner and reader!
Thanks

Hi Ruth

Your sample sounds excellent. There are a couple of technical issues you need to fix, however: First, the bit rate must be 128kb; yours is at 100kb. Select the bi rate when exporting the MP3 file. Second, the overall volume is too low. Your sample is at 79db; LV wants audio between 86db and 92db, so either increase your recording volume (preferred) or adjust the volume in Audacity (acceptable, but will also increase noise).

You can check your files yourself by downloading the free Checker app: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker

Make a new sample titled test2 and post it in this same thread; someone will come by and review it.

Thanks for the feedback and instructions. I have made a new recording and exported with the specs required. Unfortunately, after several tries, it will not upload on the uploader. This error message comes up:

test_reden.mp3 458.08 KB Error SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Looks like there's a problem with your upload. Try again.
