Hello! :D My name is Joan Moy.

Here's the link to my very first recording. Please let me know if I need to re-record.

Welcome!

It sounds great! The only issue is that the volume is too low. Visually, you should aim for your wave forms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

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

For this recording, you can just amplify by 10 dB to get it to the correct volume. :) Please do this, then upload the new file using the same file name.

I was able to amplify the recording by 10 dB. I have a lot to learn. :D

Somewhat new to Librivox - do I need to ask permission to record a version of this poem, or can I just go at it and submit.

Many thanks,

Mike

So was my recording so bad, that you want to pretend it doesn't exist. :)

Or, did it just slip through the cracks. :hmm:

Slipped through! I think I listened to it, actually, but must not have posted it. Sorry!!

(EDIT: Confirmed. It's in my "PL'd" folder on my computer.)
