I'd appreciate a listen to my one minute test. I can hear my laptop running, but I know how to lower the sound floor (that's what it's called when you take out background noise, yes?). I didn't modify it at all because the directions suggested just uploading the raw file (with suggested changes before recording).

I'm so excited to get started! Thanks for your help!

welcome to librivox :D

all tech specs are correct, but the volume for this recording is a little low.

we aim for 86-92db, with 89 being optimal and this is coming in at 80dB

could you please upload a new test with a higher volume and post the link in this thread. feel free to remove any background noise from the new test too.

(dont worry about any tests being exactly 1 min long either. although, i hope you have a good day too :) )

Thank you for your help. I'm so glad we have this process to go through! I think I figured out why it was so quiet. Hopefully I didn't over-compensate: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_anjanettebarr.mp3
