Thank you for your test recording.
Your reading is quite nice and glad to have you joining LibriVox

There are just a number of technical issues that need to be corrected.
Please read again the specifications that we need for recordings.
There are many wiki tutorials and video guides.

1). All recordings must be mono and this is stereo
2). All recording must be 128 kbps constant rate and this is set at a variable rate.
3). The volume is far too low. Our target is 89 dB with an acceptable range of 86-91 dB. This is only 81.4 dB
4). All file names must be in all lower case only
5). In actual recordings we need just about 5 sec of silence at the end, and this one several seconds too long.

You will need to make the above adjustments and submit a new recording and post the link here.
If you still need help, just ask. Let us know what program you are using and something about your equipment and recording set up so we can help you better.

Once you get all this tech stuff settled, you'll be free to have an enjoyable time reading for LibriVox. :)
