Greetings Zbywaters

Thanks for volunteering. However, your audio needs some work. LibriVox requires audio that is 128kbps constant bit rate, 44.1kHz sample rate, mono, and between 86db and 92db, preferably 89-90. Your test is 48kHz sample rate, stereo, and volume much too low at 72.4db. Make sure you select 128/44.1 and mono when recording.

Your recording also suffers from much too much room echo; you need a much deader space. You can find advice on improving issues like room echo in the Librivox wiki:

While it appears that software you are using will work, the one I recommend for iPad is TwistedWave. A video tutorial on recording on an iPhone or iPad is available here: https://youtu.be/6qG6zUTYfbc
You are of course free to use any software that works for you.

Please make a new test recording with the same file name and post it in a reply to this message. I will come back and review it for you.
