just one more piece of background info relating to window-eyes. When
Leland, the developer, was doing all the work to make the custom controls
in Audacity, like the time controls, accessible, he tried to ensure that
they were accessible on Windows using Jaws, NVDA, and Window-eyes.

I tried using Audacity with SuperNova a few years ago, and it was
completely unusable. No idea if things are any better now.
Just to add to what Andrew has said about Window-eyes. One area where it
isn't very good is in keyboard preferences. Windows-eyes can't read the
tree view, but it can read if view by name or key is set, though it does
repeat each line.
I try to keep an eye on the accessibility of Audacity with Jaws, NVDA, and
Window-eyes. I've no idea how many people use supernova or cobra, but I
don't think they have the equivalent of a 30/40 minute mode, which would
make support more difficult.

In preparation for a workshop on Audacity I’d like to find out if people
can process my material regardless of their choice of screen reader, or if
there are limits with certain screen readers.
Does anyone use Audacity with WindowEyes, Cobra or SuperNova? If so, I’d
like to hear about your experiences. Do you find that your respective
screen reader speaks the track status, Solo, Mute, Selected? Can you manage
effect dialogues? Can you access and manipulate the Select toolbar? If
applicable, does your Braille display show the content of edit fields?
I’d be grateful for any input on this.
