Welcome to librivox :D

You're sounding great, but there are two tech specs that you will need to correct.

You didn't say which DAW you are using, but I will give instructions for audacity as that is what most people use.

the bit rate should be 128 kbps. When you export your file, change 'quality' to 128kbps

The recording should use a constant bit rate rather than variable bit rate. When you export, change 'bit rate mode' to constant.

Please makes these corrections, upload the test again and psot the link here :)

Hi Ashleigh
My sincere apologies = I forgot to mention the recording program I used - my bad. The amended file is below. Thank you for your time and advice.
Kind regards
Charmaine

No worries. There's a lot to do/remember when getting ready to record :shock:

All tech specs are correct now, so you're okay to record for projects :D
