I will certainly add you to the list when I get it to a decent state.

Thanks much!

I missed the original post, having just joined recently. I have quite
reasonable VoiceOver skills. While I much more often use Audacity on
Windows, I am comfortable with it on the Mac. If I can be of any use,
could you fill me in on what aspects you want checked out.

Actually, the 2007 fella may or may not be good. Starting with 2.1.2,
we
will only be support OSX 10.6 or greater. So, you might have to give
that
fella a little attention first.

But, any help would be greatly appreciated once I get it at least
somewhat
working.

I have a 2007 era macbook... not sure which OS it has.

I'm brave and a blank slate - of you are looking for testing from the
ground
up.

I use Audacity on a Windows machine daily.

Best,
David

Hi,

I'm one of the Audacity developers and have a couple of requests.

Some of you may know Audacity uses wxWidgets for its GUI support. Up
to
this point, we've been using wxWidgets version 2.8.12 and it really
didn't
provide very good accessibility, so a few years ago I had hacked
together
a
bunch of stuff to make Audacity at least somewhat accessible on the
Mac.
That was using the Carbon interface to the accessibility APIs on the
Mac.
Well, the next version of Audacity will be using wxWidgets 3.0.2 and
that
will require me to completely rewrite the accessibility support using
the
Cocoa APIs. I regret to say that I've run out of time and this will
not
be
in the 2.1.2 release, but that's okay as it will allow us (if you're
willing) to spend a little more time on it and (hopefully) get it
better
than it was before.

I've actually made some headway, so it's looking good, but am nowhere
near
ready to ask for testing. However, I did get to wondering how many
Mac
users are out there? And if, when the time comes, would you be
willing
to
help test out the accessibility before we release the post-2.1.2
release?
Thanks much,

Leland
