For some reason there is a 'scratchiness' under your voice. It's not in the silence spaces. There are a few things you can try in order to improve things for future recordings.
You may want to check their microphone's settings (usually in the System's Control Panel for sounds and microphones), and if there is any noise-cancelling, de-activate it. Noise Reduction in Audacity may lend itself to better results.
Another thing is to clean the jack/usb port that your microphone is plunged into. Gently blow so that any dust comes out.
If these things don't work then it might be that the hardware is just old and the sound card can only do so much.
