Welcome to LibriVox. Your voice is very nice but you need to fix one thing"

- We use 128 kbps constant for bitrate, your test is at 106 kbps variable.
Here is a video on fixing that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l54FyB3wLpA it is very simple.

Please make another test, call it TEST 2, and upload, and put the link here in this thread so I will see it quickly. Your volume is almost too loud at 92.0 dB, I would suggest you back off a bit on the gain. You can use Checker to evaluate that https://youtu.be/QKVOYsaDoRo Our accepted range is from 86.0 to 92.0.

So please fix your bit rate, back off the volume a tad and make a TEST 2, and if you put the link here I will see it quickly ! Don't quit now, you are very close. :D
