When I had a Windows computer, I used Audacity nearly constantly to edit my
audio files. I like to record wildlife and so on, so I only needed to do simple
things like amplifying, trimming, filtering, etc. Almost none of this worked on
my Mac when I switched over, so I haven't been able to work on these files for
almost 2 years.
I just put Windows on my Mac using Bootcamp. Everything is going marvelously,
except I have one problem. I used to be able to select from playback using
shift+A and then select to the start (shift+J) or end (shift+K) of the track,
and then press Ctrl+T to trim. But now the Shift+A thing doesn't seem to work
anymore. I now see that you can select using Shift+Home and Shift+End in the
same way, except I don't have home or end keys. I'm using NVDA, by the way,
although I used JAWS with this before I switched to Mac.
So my question is, do I have to somehow map key combinations in Bootcamp for
Home and End, or is there an alternate way to select something and then delete
the rest of the audio?
Thanks very much in advance,
