Hi and welcome to Librivox. Your reading is great there are just some edits needed please. If you are using Audacity you can do the following.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps. When you export the file change ‘quality’ to 128kbps.

The recording should use a constant bit rate. When you export the file change ‘bit rate mode’ to ‘constant’

Please could you carry out the edits then upload the file using the same file name. If you need any more help please just ask. Thanks

Hi that is now PL OK and you are good to go and find something you would like to record. Have fun and please ask if you have any questions.


Just for future recordings you are just at the top of the volume we accept at Librivox so please ensure it doesn't go any higher.

If you like, you can use the checker tool to verify volume and other settings https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Also adding in a plug in called replay gain will help you to check your volume in Audacity. The link for the video on how to do this is below.
