Ok, great advice! Thanks. My mom suggested I lower the amplification -2 and re-post, which I think I've done. Don't know if this makes a difference at this point, but here's the result

Chapter 11 PL OK. However, it's just under the maximum volume at 91.9db. There are numerous spots where when you speak loudly the volume exceeds 100, causing distortion. I suggest turning down your recording volume a bit for future recordings.

Too much. Now you're at 84.1db. The first one passed PL; this one will not. The original file is OK. Also, do not add version numbers to your files. If you are asked to replace a chapter (which you were not) use the same file name as directed in the instructions. Uploader overwrites the previous submission so there is only the current one. The BC will now have to delete v2.
Do you have the Checker app? https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Ok. Just following mom's suggestion but I'll re-upload the original file. No, I don't have the checker app

Nathan, definitely download the Checker app if you can. It's a huge help on sorting out issues like volume and problematic file names before you upload, I don't know how I ever did without it!
