I’m told that Audacity 3.1.3 works pretty well with NVDA, but as I don’t use NVDA this is not something that I know much about.
There is a mailing list for blind Audacity users (called “Audacity4Blind”) which is a great place for blind users to get help from Audacity users that are experts with NVDA and JAWS. Details for accessing the Audacity4blind mailing list are here: https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Audacity_for_blind_users#Documentation_and_mailing_lists
Yes, if you have read my post carefuly, I have already mentioned that I have already consulted members of the audacity4blind mailing list.
But here is the problem, why the portable version that I have downloaded from the website is not accessible, but the one downloaded from the github page is accessible?
That means that these two ZIP files are identical.
Perhaps you installed them differently, or the non-accessible version did not download correctly, or you didn’t download the version that you thought you downloaded, or something else, but the actual files are the same.
@SuperSilly - what @steve said is correct. We do not alter the file signatures in any way, shape, or form. These are identical to those uploaded on our platform by the Audacity team and therefore identical to those uploaded on GitHub. Furthermore, you can quickly grab the file signatures from the FossHub page by simply clicking on the “Signature” link. You will see MD5, SHA1, SHA256 and even PGP if the team member wishes to provide them (e.g. qBittorrent project does this).
