Welcome to LibriVox. You will need to correct some of your technical specifications and make another test (test 2)
1) We need a mono track, yours is in stereo
2) We need 128 kbs bit rate constant ; yours is 163 kbs variable

Here is a video on setting your tech specs in Audacity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8JkCgKo3fU&t=72s

Your voice is fine. Please fix these things, make another test, export it as "test 2", upload it and post the link in this same forum thread. I will see it quickly and check it out again. Thanks.

Note that you have a significant amount of background noise, you might turn off any fans or electronics near your microphone.

OK,you are making progress, all of your tech specs are correct now. But your volume is low at 80 dB. We aim at 89 dB so incr ease the gain either at your microphone or inside of Audacity and make a third test, CALL IT TEST 3 and upload it again please. Put the link in this thread. You may wish to use the Checker program https://youtu.be/QKVOYsaDoRo to check your volume.
