Hi Daveed,

Please see Cuong's recent answer on how you might do an accessible 
//www.freelists.org/post/audacity4blind/Adding-Tracks-to-a-Recording,2 .

There are no plans to add punch-in recording to Audacity, at least 
of the simple, destructive type where you overwrite the existing 
content in the same track in a similar way to a tape recorder. 

But we will add your vote as an expression of interest in punch-in.  

You can always SHIFT + R to record to the end of selected tracks.
