Hi. I am new to Voiceover and one thing I have been searching for is if there is a way to control Audacity from my phone so I can leave my laptop and interface where they are vs. having to move them when recording. If anyone has any known ideas that could help please let me know. Thanks.

There's no official / supported way, but there's an app called "Unified Remote" that claims to be able to send key presses to a computer. As most things in Audacity can be accomplished through a keyboard, it may be a usable option.

Please note that this app is not associated with Audacity and we are not able to provide technical support for it.
Some similar / alternative apps are listed here: https://alternativeto.net/software/unified-remote/
