Hello, hello

I'm Heather and I once put my hand through a window trying to swat a fly.
No need to call PETA - the fly survived.

I'm super excited to join this wonderful community of readers and am looking forward to getting feedback on my test submission. My next steps are to find something to read and get going :D

I've listened to numerous LibriVox recordings and everyone does such a great job.

Audacity
USB microphone

Thanks for checking out my post!

Hi and welcome to Librivox. Your reading is great there are just some edits needed please. If you are using Audacity you can do the following.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps. When you export the file change ‘quality’ to 128kbps.

The recording should use a constant bit rate. When you export the file change ‘bit rate mode’ to ‘constant’

The recording should be in mono not stereo

Please could you carry out the edits then upload the file using the same file name. If you need any more help please just ask. Thanks
