Welcome!

Your volume is way too low. Visually, you should aim for your wave forms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

Your wave forms look more like little pimples along the line. :lol:

Make sure the microphone slider in the Audacity window is all the way up. Also, have you increased your input volume in Windows yet? Here's a link to instructions: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Audacity_1-2-3#Volume

Try making these adjustments, then post another test. Use the same file name as your previous one, and post in this same thread when it's ready. :)

Volume is great!

You have a lot of background static noise. I suggest some noise reduction to take care of it. Here are a couple resources:
text instructions: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noisecleaning_With_Pics
video, but with an older version of Audacity so the settings are different: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFSg9o37HMw

My settings are as follows:
Noise reduction: 10-16 (I suggest about 14 for you)
Sensitivity: 6
Frequency Smoothing: 6

I suggest because you have so much, you do the whole thing twice. Get the noise profile, then clean the noise, then get another noise profile and clean it again. Instead of 2 steps, it would be 4. This seems to clean up your file pretty well.

Try it and see what you think, then post your cleaned file here for a final check. :)
