Hi Ron,
I think that for the screen reader to say what these keystrokes had done would 
have to be done in a script for the screen reader. I'm not sure whether the 
current Jaws script for Audacity does this.
An alternative is to execute these zoom commands from the view menu.

Hi David.

I think I get it now.  The thing confusing me was that when you Press Ctrl+ 
1, 2 or 3, nothing is spoken to tel you that anything has changed.  I assume 
you use the said commands before selecting a time range.

Is there any way Jaws or other screen readers could announce that the 
keystroke has been effective?

Regards.

Ron
