Hard to Hear recording

I have a recording of a speaker but it is hard to hear what the speaker is saying. It is like the speaker is far away from th mic and i can hear static noise better then the speaker…

Is there a way in audacity to make the speaker louder and the other noise quieter…

This is my first time using this program

It will be difficult to make much improvement.
You could try using the Equalization effect to reduce low frequencies (below 100 Hz) and reduce very high frequencies (above 5000 Hz). That may make it a little better.
See here for the Equalization effect: http://manual.audacityteam.org/manual/help/manual/man/equalization.html
