Hi and welcome to Librivox. Your reading is great there are just some edits needed please. I am sorry but I am not able to advise how to do this in Garageband.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps.

The recording should use a constant bit rate.

The sampling rate should be 44.1 kHz (44,100 Hz).

The volume is 83dB which is too low. We aim for between 86-92 dB but ideally we would like it to be at 89 dB.
If you like you can use the checker tool to verify volume and other settings.

Just for future reference -- all file names must be in lower case only.

It would help if you could remove some of the background noise again I am not sure how to do this in Garageband

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
