The recording meter in Audacity 2.1.0 is more accessible than in previous 
version, and screen readers can now read the peak level that occurred during a 
monitoring session. More details are given in my Jaws guide: In the recording 
section, there's a sub section on adjusting the recording level. This is a link 
to this section:

Note that if you're using Window-eyes, this may not fully work. I tested 
Window-eyes 9 on windows 8.1 and choosing start monitoring on the record meter 
drop down menu caused window-eyes to get lost somewhere. I think this is a 
window-eyes problem rather than an Audacity problem.
