regarding your file, i am not the pl of this project!
but technically, it is way too loud. did you amplify it?
did you install replay gain?
replay gain is a plugin, which is easy to use (after it is installed)

--> ReplayGain is a plugin for audacity, which calculates the difference between 89db and your files volume and gives you the value to enter into the amplify effect.

other than that hint, i will leave the listening to your recording and text-prooving to the dedicated proof listener of that project :-)



--> ok, your testfile is metered by checker ok for most parts, but some background noise is not ok (which is easy to fix with a few mouseclicks)
i didn't hear any background noise in your recording, but some bumps at the desk maybe?
anyways, your 1 minute test is test pl ok!

you have claimed some sections already and even uploaded, which is a little bit fast, but...
honestly: thank you for participating on librivox!
your help is coming in like a thunderstorm and we need every bit of help with recording, listening and everything you can do!
:clap: :D

--------------------------------------------------------------

to amplify your file, short instructions:
your file has 100 db. we aim for 89db, with a range of +/- 3db.  unfortunately, audacity has no tool to meter the average volume of your file, but you can use 
 --> checker (a technical analysis tool, which was made for lv specifically). 
calculate the difference between 89-(checker metered volume)= the value, you have to amplify your file
--> ReplayGain is a plugin for audacity, which calculates the difference between 89db  and your files volume and gives you the value to enter into the amplify effect.

--> to amplify in audacity, please:
in the menue bar, choose effects > choose amplify > in the amplify window, enter the value you calculated (see above), hit ok - and it is done!

--------------------------------------------------------------

background noise. 

in audacity, please:
1.  copy and paste your last second of the recording until you reach approximately 5 seconds of ending silence. select the 5 seconds silence at the end of the file 
2. in the menue bar, choose effects > choose noise reduction > choose get noise profile
3. select the whole track (eg with clicking into the little window at the left of the audio track, showing some stats and data / or with ctrl+a / manual selection)
4. in the menue bar, choose effects > choose "repeat noise reduction" (or open it again and hit ok, this time)

since the noisereduction has an influence on the metered volume of the file, please doublecheck with replaygain : the average volume should be between ~89db.

--------------------------------------------------------------

to edit bumps: just mark the soundwaves of the bump, press z to mark it from a zero point to a zero point, and amplify it for minus 40 db.
that way, it will be too silent to be a problem.

cheers and thank you for your patience!
wolfi :D
