Hello Yanyann,
Welcome to LV!

Will you be able to edit with these programs; e.g. cut out mistakes and paste in corrections? The overall quality sounds good so there is no problem with that.

The volume is a little low at 83.6dB. We aim for 89dB with an acceptable range of 86-92dB. Please amplify.
We require a bit rate of 128kb. Yours is 192kb. This is likely a setting in the export area but I don't know your program so that's a guess.

Please upload a corrected file to this same link so we can double check the settings.

I re-did the test: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_yanyann.mp3

I used Audacity 2.3.0 with a Blue Yeti mic

The export settings are all correct and the quality sounds great.

Your volume is too low at 81.6dB. You may want to adjust your input volume. If not, you will certainly need to amplify. We aim for 89dB with an allowance of 86-92dB. Please adjust and post another test in this same thread. No need to post in the project thread.

I am not sure how to change the input volume so I amplified it to 11dB.
