Hi there. I usually post my daughter, LittlePeanut's recordings from my account. She has recorded for Librivox before. Here is her reading:

Thanks!
So...... please clarify. Have you done the 1 minute test? and is she using the same set up as you? Thanks.
The adjective for metal is metallic. But not so for iron, which is ironic.

Sorry I was not clear. Yes, I have done the one minute test, and she records with my set up.

Your voice is nice, but you will need to fix some technical specs and then make another test:

1. Your bitrate is 108kbps variable; we need 128kbps constant
2. Your volume is too loud at 97.8 decibels; we need it to be between 86 and 92 decibels (shoot for 89)
3. There is a lot of background noise, like some machines running. Probably a fan or other device near the microphone. turn off as much as you can or move to a quieter room if possible.

So, please fix these things, make another test, call it TEST 2, upload and put the link in this thread where I will see it quickly. Ask if you need any help. Here is a video on setting specs https://youtu.be/l00VDvGTieg
