Beautiful reading! The only issue is that the volume of Sections 11 and 12 is around 81 dB, which is too low (87-91 dB is acceptable). Have you heard of Checker? You can check the technical specifications, including the volume, of your files against LibriVox standards using the program. To fix the volume, use the amplify feature in Audacity by selecting the whole recording, then clicking Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number +8. Verify that the files are around 89 dB using Checker, then reupload using the same file names. Post in this thread when the files are ready for spot PL. Thanks!

Hi cadastra,

Please could I claim section 13 and 14. This will be my first recording if I am successful in claiming these sections. You can use my name Blake Glover for the LibriVox catelog :D

Hi Cadastra,

Hope you're going well. I'm new to LibriVox and would like to claim chapter 15 please, if I may. I'd like to start with something short and this looks perfect.

Name for catalogue: Madeleine Beech

I have had my one-minute test approved by "kathrinee" but here it is in case you'd like to review it:

Thank you. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Madeleine
