I tested. Audacity does not recognize a QT file under .aif nor .aifc and refuses the importation.
But, having changed the file with QT into .aifc, Audacity opens the file correctly that it is by Importer>Audio (Any file), or Fichier>Ouvrir (Any file), or by “Open with” while clicking (right click) on the file.
