just to clarify the shortcuts for creating labels. The commands for
creating labels are on the labels sub menu of the edit menu. If you want to
create a label at the position of the playback or recording cursor, then
the command you want is "add label at playback position", which has the
shortcut Ctrl + M. After typing this keystroke you can either type in a
name for the label and press Enter, or if you don't need a name, just press
In contrast, the command "add label at selection", with the shortcut Ctrl +
B, creates either a point label for the position of the cursor, or a range
label for a selected time range, depending whether there is a time range
There's a section on Labels in my guide for users of screen readers:

Yes, you can insert labels on the fly while recording with e.g.
Control+B (range) or Control+M (point label).
Try it on playback first.
Make sure to check "Dialog for new Labels" as entering the name
without feedback is a bit quirky.
You can jump between the labels with Alt+Left/Right.
There's also a label editor for adjusting the names/times (edit menu).
Finally, you can export the parts individually, choose "Export
Multiple" for that.

I want to know if Audacity have the following function:
When I make a live recording and for example after 15 minutes I want to
in a marker on that specific spot while I am still busy record. So whenI
stop the recording, I can go quick to the specific spot.
