Many thanks for your help. I figured out that I had to turn off quick nav, and
if I pressed up arrow, I could move the cursor to the next track, and press
return on it.
I should mention that I am primarily a Windows user. However, my old Mac, which
had a Bootcamp partition was recently stolen, so I had to get another Mac. I’m
still working on getting Windows. But in the mean time, I have to get used to
Another question. I am using a Yeti Blue Stereo microphone with Audacity on the
Mac. One really big problem is that it seems very latent, because when I talk
into the microphone, it takes around three hundred milliseconds for me to hear
back what I said. As a result, it interrupts what I am saying and therefore I
am not able to do well when I monitor myself in real-time, with such a delay as
that. I had previously used this microphone with my Windows computer in
Audacity, and I never really had any delays. I never had any delays with the
built-in microphone input or stuff like that. So I am thinking that something
is going on. I also used the Yeti with Garage Band, and didn’t experience any
delays. So I am convinced that it has to do with Audacity reading my microphone.
I would appreciate some help with this.

I hope the issues on the Mac version of Audacity will be fixed as soon as
possible. I haven’t seen the one you are talking about though.
When you press return on a track you should hear a click from Voiceover if
sound effects are turned on.
When using CTRL-option or capslock L you should be able to hear the status of
the track, being selected or unselected announced by Voiceover.
Hope this helps
Best regards Thomas

My name is Ulysses. I heard about this list after doing some google
searches. I found out that there is a version of Audacity optimised for
Voiceover on the Mac. That version is 2.1.1Screen Reader. Unfortunately, I
am having some trouble selecting individual tracks. I use Audacity for
multi-tracking, and sometimes I need to change one or two tracks, instead of
everything. I find that pressing enter only works some of the time, but I am
wondering if one has to do anything special to locate a specific track and
then select it with return.
I would appreciate any help wit this.
