Audacity, Windows 10, Analog Mic.
Amplify effect and Mp3 gain was used to increase db.

Looking forward to the feedback.

Hi Teeranasaur, welcome to librivox

There's a few things to fix before you will be ready to record.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps.  When you export, change 'quality' to 128 kbps.

The recording should be in mono sound. Go to 'preferences' 'devices' and change 'channels' to 'mono'

The recording should use a constant bit rate. When you export, change 'bit rate mode' to constant.

Audacity should remember these settings for future recordings.

The volume falls is a little too low at 83dB. We aim for 86 - 92dB (with 89 being the goal). If you like, you can install the checker tool https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/ which can be used to verify volume and other settings.

Please correct the above settings, upload the test again and post the link here :)
