A very nice reading, though your volume is at least 2dB (maybe 3) too low. The volume also varies in your recording (beginning at about 5:55 through sometime after 7:00.) if you would like some help correcting this, please let me know.

And what a chapter! Cat fight! Dogs!
Thanks! I did notice that too but i'm not sure how to edit the volume in audacity. Any way to edit without re-recording?
Oh, yes! Definitely! Do you have ReplayGain installed in Audacity. It is not always there and can be installed easily. It's pretty useful, but we can lift the volume another way for the time being.

Yes, Audacit y has as way to make tracks louder or softer. Here is a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_z607awyLw

Use the Effect > amplify to do it. Please ask if this is confusing. \
As a bonus, I am including (at NO added cost!) this video on basic editing in Audacity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9NuSuWYaWg&feature=youtu.be :D

Phil, do you have a specific video to recommend?

I really need to make a list of all the topics you cover.

I recorded about 2 minutes today. Still a bit raspy. It's maddening!

Ah, nice! Will download it later and try to fix the volume.

Phil,
Elsie hasn't been around in a long time. Do you want me to PL these last two chapters?
