Hi there!

Welcome to Librivox!

Your recording is good and passed the tests except it is a little loud.

The volume falls outside of the target range (86–92 dB) - it is currently at 93.9 dB.

If you can highlight your whole recording (Ctrl-A on a PC) and then use EITHER Noise Reduction or Amplify (and use a negative number in Amplify such as -3) both found under Effects in Audacity to bring the volume down, save again (you do not need to re-record) and post again so I can check the volume you will be ready to record!

Hi back!

Your file passes just fine now - congratulations!

You now can move on and record selections of books - have fun!

To answer your other question about checking the files - we do have a utility that we use to do that and it is called Checker. It was created by the spouse of one of the Librivox people. Here is the link to where you can find it - install it and then select a file and you can see after recording and saving a file how it is technically prior to uploading it for proof listening.
