moderated Accessibility of Audacity?


Jim Portillo
 

Greetings,

 

I apologize if this is off topic for this list, but I’m not sure where or who to ask. I would like to be in touch with anyone who currently uses the latest version of the Audacity software with JAWS. If things go as I am hoping, I may be using it for some recording. I need to know how accessible and operatable it is on a laptop computer with JAWS. I am looking for perhaps some tutorials or even classes online. If it is accessible with JAWS, I’d like to learn as much as I can about it.

I’m happy to go off list with people who use it or can lead me in the right direction. At this point, it needs to be that specific program, because I would be working or making recordings with others who are using it.

Jim

so if you can find the subscribe info that is a good place to talk about it.

There are JFW configuration files and all kinds of tutorials on the software.

Hello…

 

Not sure how much I can help as I don’t use Audacity much at the moment, sticking with the one-track editor Goldwave. However I have used Audacity in the past and yes, it is quite usable from the keyboard by a screen-reader users. I believe there is, or was, even an Audacity for Blind mailing list; perhaps someone else here could point you there. There’s a VIP software guide made by David Bailes 9sp) as well. He has been pretty good with updating stuff but I’m not sure what the last version is. This was done with JAWS users in mind but everythign there pretty much pertains to all screen-readers for Windows as there isn’t much that’s JAWS specific.

Check out the semi-official wiki here:

https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Audacity_for_blind_users

 

And the VIP software guide. This pertains to version 3.0.3, which, if not the latest version, is pretty damn close and things won’t have changed much if at all.

I think it’s about $50 in uS funds, give or take $10 or so. Check out their website. I downloaded the software but still haven’t bought it as I struggled to get it configured properly and so never was able to take advantage of the trial period.

However plenty of people use it and swear by it and it seems like a good piece of software.
