I used Audacity with a Windows 10 PC and a Yeti USB microphone.

Thank you

Sounds really good Jackie!

Just a couple of technical things.

1) We require files to be exported at a constant 128kbs, and yours is a variable bit rate.
In Audacity, when the export menu comes up, at the bottom for Format Options choose Constant
Under that for quality, slect 128kbs from the drop-down menu.
2) Only lower case letters are allowed in LibriVox file names.
3) We need no more than one second of silence at the beginning, and yours is just slightly over, and about five seconds at the end, and yours again is longer than that.

Again, excellent reading!

Please make the above corrections, and upload you file again and post the link here so we can do a final check.

Everything is OK (except you have only two seconds of silence at the end) So, just remember to make it 5 seconds when you record your projects. I'll sign you up for what you requested, with pleasure!

WELCOME TO LIBRIVOX :clap:

Thanks so much. Noted on the silence at the end.
