Hello,
I completed my 1-Minute Test. Link: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_melissabuell.mp3
I used Windows, a USB microphone, and Audacity for the recording.

Thank you!

Hi Melissa, welcome! Your voice is very nice but there are a few things you need to fix in your set up and then do another test

1) we need files in mono (one track) format; yours is in stereo (two tracks)
2) we need bit rate to be 128 kbps constant; your is now set to 143 kbps variable

Very easy fixes as shown in this little video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l00VDvGTieg&feature=youtu.be

So.... please make these changes to your technical specs, another test, call it TEST 2, upload and put the link here in this thread where I will see it quickly and get you recording!!
