Hi Cuong,
I've had a look at the code for the compressor, and can't see what has changed that would effect how Jaws reads the sliders in the compressor dialog. Do you know the exact version number where the slider was read better? Most of the effects have both an edit box and a slider of setting each parameter, and this would probably be the best fix to make this dialog accessible. Unfortunately Jaws isn't very good at reading sliders. It would be possible to create a slider where nvda would would read out the ratio when you changed the setting of the slider, but Jaws would just read a percentage. The best I've been able to achieve is for Jaws to read out the ratio and the percentage when you press insert+up arrow, but even then it reads the value of the ratio for the state of the slider before the last adjustment and not after, so it reads the wrong value.
So an edit box and a slider is probably the way to go.

David.

Hi Gale and listers
When read e mails about geting disk space innfo, I remember one thing
related to the accissibility feature.
When I try an erlier version of Audacity might be 1.3) with the compressor,
Jaws read the slider bar better than current version. For example, when I
adjust the ratio to 76%, Jaws read: 8:1 76%. I think it good and need to be
fixed in the next version because most of tutorial I've read, writer usually
talk about ratio, not percent.
Thanks for reading, and sorry for my English.
Cuong.

The Status Bar messages that appear are relevant to what you
are doing at the time. So when you first start Audacity, the
Status Bar has the welcome message and version number that
Sandra mentioned.

You have to start an Audacity recording before the Status Bar
shows the message about disk space remaining time. You will
need to wait a few seconds after recording starts before the
message appears. Or just press R to record and SPACE to stop
recording then the message will appear after you press SPACE.

There is a warning on launch of Audacity when you have 100 MB
or less space in the temporary folder. But 100 MB is only about
five minutes of recording time for stereo recording in 32-bit
float.

If you are recording and run out of disk space, unfortunately
there is no warning. Audacity will start corrupting the existing
recording when it has no more space. It is yet another thing
that is on the list to be fixed.

Yes that is weerd that it does that. But what I do no that unless if
you switched it off under settings, there is a setting wich allow to
warn you when the space on your harddrive becomes low.
