voice isolation

Hi steve, total beginner here. Could something like my attached clip be cleaned up for voice isolation given that the background noise is inconsistent? Would appreciate your input, thx!

Try using the “Vocal Reduction and Isolation” effect with the default settings (as shown in the picture in the manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/vocal_reduction_and_isolation.html) except for the “Action” control which should be set to “Isolate Vocals”. It can not completely remove the music because some of the sounds are in the same frequency range and the same pan position (panned to the centre) as the voice. “Some” of the music is reduced, and that’s as good as it gets.
