Hi Gary,
I'm not sure whether it would be possible to build the keystrokes into 
Audacity. I don't know enough about how applications and screen readers 
communicate with each other. I was just hoping that it might be possible to do 
it without putting values in the status bar or elsewhere in the window. 

David.

having keystrokes to read the selection start and selection end/length
controls is useful. 
Note that a user can set this up using frames in Jaws. 
[Gary Campbell] Yeah, I always forget about frames.

I think that the ideal solution would be to have the keystrokes for these to
built in to audacity so that they are available to users of all screen
readers.

[Gary Campbell] I agree that it would be more universally accessible to have
the keystrokes in Audacity, but how would audacity do that?  Put the value
on the status bar?  Select the field?  Have a spot on the screen where
things that should be spoken are written so that the screen reader could
monitor that location?  Implement the screen reader APIs so that it could
speak directly?  Unfortunately, it seems to me that all of those solutions
are in one way or another undesirable.
