Hi Tod, welcome to librivox :D

You're sounding great but you have 1 tech spec to fix. When you export, change 'quality' to 128 kbps.

Also, you have some plosives on 'p' sounds, so if possible you might like to move your mic so that it isn't directly in front of your mouth.

Please upload another test once you have fixed bit rate and post the link here :)

Hi,

Thank you for the feedback. Here is my revised version removing the plosives and changing to 128: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_todmanning.mp3

Hi todd,

all tech specs are correct now but moving your mic has caused volume to drop to 84.6dB and we aim for 86 - 92dB, with 89dB being the goal. You should be able to fix this by turning up your recording volume or using the amplify effect. If you like you can use the checker tool to check the volume of recordings https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/
