Hi David!
I'm on Windows 8.1 and c works fine for me. I never use speed altering
commands, but I've created my own key commands quite extensively and it's not
causing any problems in the new release.

Cheers! Robbie

Subject: [audacity4blind] Bug with play cut preview keystroke (C) and some
other playback keystrokes

Hi,
as mentioned in other messages, there is a bug with the play cut preview
keystroke C in Audacity 2.1.1, and this also affects the user assigned
keystrokes of some other playback commands as described below.

If the letter C keystroke doesn't work, then the workaround provided by
Robert, is to Press R to start recording in a new track, press spacebar to
stop, and then press ctrl+z to undo, which removes this track and leaves the
project unchanged. After opening a projects, once you have done any recording,
the letter C always works.

It looks as if whether this bug occurs might depend on which version of
windows you are using. Based on limited data it looks like the bug shows up in
Windows 7, but not in Windows 8.1. Can anyone on this list confirm whether or
not this is true.

This bug also affects a number of playback commands which don't have
keystrokes assigned to them by default, but which a user can assign keystrokes
in the keyboard category of preferences. These are:
1. Play at speed.
2. Loop play at speed.
3. Play cut preview at speed.
4. Adjust playback speed.
5. Increase playback speed.
6. Decrease playback speed.

David.
