Hi there!

I would like to read Section 3: Planning for an Education. This is my first time recording but my 1-minute test has been approved so I am ready to go. My name is Janice Wiggins.

Please advise.

Thank you and happy holidays!

Well, I don't see your one-minute test uploaded in the listeners thread, so no way to check ti.
But, it seems someone has already added you to the LV catalog, so for now I'll put you in for this section.

Very well done.

A couple of changes are needed.

-Please extend the ending silence to ~5 seconds (currently ~4 seconds)
-At export, please make sure the bit rate is 128kbps and constant rather than variable.

Hi there,
I had done a 1 minute reading in the past, but uploading was probably user error. I have just uploaded my 1 minute test to make it official. So sorry for the confusion on my part.

Hello,

I'd like to claim "Making Speeches," section 10, please.

It's my first time recording, and AnasYousef would be fine as the name posted. :)

OK I'm new to this. Do I start recording, or is there something else to do first?
