I just recorded and edited my first submission.

After reducing the noise with audacity is there a way for me to check the volume and be sure it is in the acceptable range?
Reading is fun, duh. Mental!

Hi. You can verify your audio by downloading and using the free Checker app: https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

Alternately, you can use the Replay Gain plugin in directly in Audacity to tell you how much your file needs to be amplified to get to 89 db. Instructions here:
