All the technical settings are correct :clap:

The volume is a little bit on the soft side -- we aim for 89 dB and anything between 87 and 91dB is fine. The volume here is 86 or so, so it would be good if you either use a slightly higher input volume or amplify a little bit

Finally I have a style suggestion. Please keep in mind that this is only my opinion, and thus only a suggestion, not a requirement. :) The pauses between your sentences are very short -- it sounds like you perhaps have edited out your breathing without adding space between them? Personally I like hearing the breath of the reader (and I dont edit out my own breaths). As a listener, though, I feel a bet "breathless" if the recording leaves little space between sentences.

You voice is nice to listen to! :thumbs:

After 6 months waiting, this is certainly not worthy of applause, a party or even a kudos. So I will gently slip in here and say Chapter 1 is ready for PL:

https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/annalsofann_01_sharber_128.mp3
Time 27:49.09 / 89.9 dB

I can't guarantee "speedy" progress, but hopefully will not be another 6 months before the next submission.

Thanks!!
CJ
Kind Regards!

Great reading in chapter 1! :clap:

Only one PL note:
Please reduce the silence at the end to 5 seconds or so (it used to be that longer recordings needed 10 seconds of silence, but that has been changed).

Please save with the same name and upload again. :9:
