I have completed section 10 The Baltimore Oriole.

Thanks for your recording!
I do have a couple of notes for you that need attention.
(You should also post the file length with your link; I've entered it for you)

First, the overalll audio quality seems a bit distorted. I noticed this right at the end especially. It could be your microphone or could be from excessive processing, such as noise reduction, that you are applying to the recording.

Second, the volume is too low. Our target is 89 dB with a range of 86-92 dB acceptable. Yours measures only 84.8 dB, You can use the Amplification feature in audacity to bring this up. Set it to about +4 dB.

Third, the beginning and ending silences need attention. At the beginning you should have no more than one second. Yours is not much more, but as long as you're modifying the file, you might as well trim it. You have the five seconds at the end, but there is a loud click at the very end that needs to be clipped out.

Your actually reading is just fine. :) That is the important thing, after all. These are just technical things, and once you get a handle on them, you will be fine.

Let us know if you have any question or need help with any of this.

Just upload your corrected file under the same name and post your link here again.
