thanks for the feedback. Is there anything that you'd like to be able to do
with labels, but can't at the moment? Steve, who's on this list, suggested
commands for setting the end of a selection to the next label, and setting
the start of a selection to the previous label. I don't know whether those
would be of any interest. No idea when any new features would be
implemented, but it's helpful to have an idea of what people would like.

David, I love it. I am a big fan of labels anyway and the alt-arrow
commands make it so much faster to jump between them. Interestingly, when
reaching - say - the last label pressing alt-right again loops back to the
first. NVDA is announcing label name and position in the list perfectly.

For those of you who use labels, you may be interested to have a play
with a couple of new commands which are available in the latest nightly
build of audacity for windows:
The two new commands are "selection to next label" and "selection to
They have default shortcuts alt+right and alt+left.
A label track does not have to be the focus. If there is a single label
track in the project, that it used. If there is more than one label track,
then the first label track, if any, starting at the focused track is used.
If the commands are used during playback of the project, playback
continues from the new cursor/selection.
The commands provide feedback to screen readers: the name of the label,
and position in the form of "i of n".
Any feedback is welcome,
