Oh dear. I think I may fall foul of that. My files passed the ACX check on Audacity, but there were changes in volume throughout which I did attempt to correct, but a couple of chapters may well fall foul of that. I don't know, not knowing the parameters.steve wrote: ↑Thu Feb 27, 2020 11:01 amTheir automated loudness measurement is more sophisticated than our ACX Check plug-in, in that it automatically removes long silences prior to measuring. It also checks that the loudness is reasonably consistent throughout the file, whereas our plug-in just takes an average measurement. Their "robot" was not publicly available.
I've uploaded them all to the "upload manager", which has an audio check, which came back with this "Audio Analysis provides feedback on your uploaded audio files, allowing you to see and correct any issues before submitting your project to QA. Files are analyzed against ACX’s submission requirements for RMS, peak levels, bitrate, bitrate method, sample rate, mixed channels, and duplicate files.
No issues detected. Keep in mind that this tool does not detect issues such as spacing, noise floor, or editing errors, so be sure to conduct your own end-to-end review of all files before submitting your final project to QA.".
Oh, I don't know. I think when it comes down to it, however helpful this forum is (and it has been very helpful), there is a learnign process you just have to go through in the process of actually trying to get an audiobook passed.
