hi and welcome to librivox!

i have checked your test and you are almost there! i have two notes for you

your volume is a little high! we aim at 89 decibel with a 86 to 92 decibel. you are at 92.8 decibel now. there are a bunch of tools you can use to regulate your volume. we have tutorials on all of them
i woud recommend the add on tool replaygain. it sets your volume to 89 decibel reliably :) you can find the tutorial here https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Measuring_Volume_within_Audacity
all the other tutorials are here https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Audacity_Tutorials

the other thing is that i think you have a bit of background noise that could be cleaned out. could you try noisecleaning your recording? we have a tutorial on it here as well https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Noisecleaning_With_Pics :)

let us know if you have any questions :)

Please help us finish The Theory and Practice of Brewing and learn about beer!
