Hi Laurie, Welcome to LibriVox and to the Short Nonfiction Collection (SNF). It's great that you have sent up your one-minute sound check before you begin recording. That way you"ll know your recordings meet Librivox's standards.
There is a special thread where people generally post their one-minute tests. It is here: viewforum.php?f=21
. When you post your one-minute test on the "Listeners and Editors Wanted " thread, you are put in contact with Librivox volunteers who are recording "techies" and they can tell you exactly what to do in Audacity to bring your recording up to LibriVox requirements. From then on, you can always check your recordings with a LibriVox-specific app called Checker, which will assure you you've got all the requirements met. https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker
I'm not personally a "techie." My role here at the SNF is that of a coordinator. So, I'm going to copy your post and transfer it to the Listeners and Editors Wanted thread.
I did listen to your test. You read well; your voice is nice and clear. The only problem is that your volume is on the low side. This should be a very easy fix, but I'd prefer you get expert advice on how to do it.
Please look at the Listeners and Editors thread for your test and watch for someone to answer you there. When your recordings can pass the Checker app, we'd love to have you record something for the SNF
Here is a copy of what I just posted to viewforum.php?f=21

This one-minute test was posted on the Short Nonfiction Collection thread. Would someone please listen and help Laurie out. According to Checker, her volume is a little low.
