Hi, this is my first voice test at Librivox. I recorded this on a MacBookPro using Audacity v2.3.3 and a Blue Snowball USB mic. Here is the link: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/librivoxtest1_blue.mp3. Thank you for your time and feedback!

Welcome to Librivox!

Wonderful sound! We just need to set to correct bitrate. You can set that when exporting as mp3 in Audacity; check the format options in the Export Window, and choose "Constant" for Bit Rate Mode, and "128 kbps" for Quality. Then click Save to export and Audacity should keep these settings for all future exports.

Then, please upload your newly exported file and post the link here for a final check :thumbs:
