Audacity 2.1.1 includes the following new features which are relevant to the
users of screen readers:
1. The transport status is now the first item in the status bar. This tells you
whether Audacity is stopped, playing or recording, and whether it is Paused.
2. There are four new playback keystrokes for checking a selected time range.
These will be described in message to follow shortly.
3. There are two new playback keystrokes to help with aligning and pasting.
Again, these will be described in a message to follow shortly.
4. You can now move to the first track or the last track by pressing ctrl+home
or ctrl+end respectively.
5. You can now assign shortcuts to the commands for moving a track up, down, to
top, or to bottom. The names of the commands are move focused track up, down,
to top, and to bottom.
