I am blind and have been using Audacity with Windows-based screen readers since early in the 1.3 beta phase and have enjoyed very good access. While having limited access to a Mac two or more years ago, I wished Audacity was more accessible with the in-built VoiceOver screen reader. As providence would have it, within a week or so of gaining ongoing access to a Mac, Audacity V2.01 was released with VoiceOver access. On reading the announcement, I embarrassed myself in the office with a shout of excitement. It is so good to be able to use the same tool on both platforms, including projects in progress.
By way of a very small correction, in the pane for selecting a portion of audio, VoiceOver announces the “End” radio button as “Selection start”. The “Length” radio button is announced correctly. A sighted colleague confirmed that, visually, all appears correct.
