Thank you for listening! I used Audacity and an Audio-technica AT2020V microphone. I hope I did this right!

Irene,

Welcome to Librivox!

Couple of things to address in your set up.

Your bit rate is variable, LV requires 128kbps fixed. You set that as you are exporting to the MP3. Instructions are here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Audacity_1-2-3 (See 5. Export setup).

You're volume is good. You're at 90.1 dB. Our target is 89 dB, with 87-91 being acceptable.

No noticeable background noise.

Please do another test to fix the bit rate and upload it here for a check. Would you replace ""yourforumname" in the file name with "irenesuber" so your file doesn't get written over by another reader?

Thanks,

MaryAnn
