New subscriber, and one of the Audacity development team.
I worked on improving Audacity's interaction with VoiceOver on Mac, two
years ago in version 2.1.3.
I made it possible to navigate to the individual toolbar buttons (like
Play, Record, Cut, Copy, etc.) and to navigate to the individual tracks,
and the names of all of those are read.
There are still some defects, compared with the better integration on
Windows, such as in the Preferences dialog.
But the manual still says recent versions are "not accessible" and
recommends use of the old version 2.1.1, which I think is not a fair
judgment. 2.1.2 was worse than the previous version here, but I think
2.1.3 accessibility is superior to 2.1.1.
I want to hear users' opinions. Do any of you use Audacity on MacOS, as
well as Windows? How do you think accessibility compares between the
You may not have 2.1.1, but never mind. Give me your opinion whether
recent versions of Audacity are accessible enough that the warning on the
manual page could be amended.
