Transcription Toolbar

Re: Transcription Toolbar – looked but didnt find answer

Win 10
Aud 2.1.3

Despite repeatedly “checkmarking” the transcription toolbar, it seems to repeatedly uncheck itself and has never shown up.

Used it for years w/my mac.

Mac took a dump.

On WIndows now. cant get the darn Xcription toolbar to appear.

Thanks Gale! :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi Liz, I’m sad to have to tell you that Gale died last year after a long illness - see: Missing features - Audacity Support


That’s a very old version. The current version is Audacity 2.2.2 and it is available via the Audacity website: Audacity ® | Download for Windows

The Transcription Toolbar should be shown by default, so I’m puzzled by this :confused:

Have you tried resetting Audacity to factory settings by deleting the audacity.cfg file ?

See this FAQ in the Manual:


And what Steve says …

If you use the EXE installer for 2.2.2 for Windows you will be asked as part of the installation process if you want to reset your settings.
