Hello, new user here, please could you see if I meet the requirements?
  • Audacity 2.4.2
  • Windows 10
  • USB mic
I did the standard test in English, and did a little at the end in Japanese, just to see what I sound like.
For reference, this was the first few lines of Ame Ni Mo Makezu by Kenji Miyazawa.

and read from here:

Please excuse my slight hesitations at the beginning -I will be better in actual readings, I promise :oops: :oops: :oops:

Welcome to Librivox.

You have a delightful voice - in both English and Japanese.

Your test recording has met all the required specifications. You can go forth and record.

However, there was some background noise which could be removed. Information about this process can bee found in the following video:
