I reviewed your test sample and some changes are needed. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kb constant bit rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. Everything is else good, but your volume is too low at 83.5db.

First, if you have a gain control on your mic, turn it up so your raw recording has wave forms that peak at about the 0.5 marks in the Audacity window. If necessary, adjust the volume level before exporting by going to Filters>Amplify.

You can verify your audio yourself by downloading the free Checker app: https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Please record a new test with the same file name and post it as a reply. I’ll return and review it for you.
