The short answer is yes. When you hit record a second and subsequent times,
material is appended to the track. And now for a mention of my new best
friend, clips. When you append to the track, a clip will be created
automatically. Unless you have previously created a clip with control+I, there
will now be two clips on the track. TO move back and forth between them use
alt+comma (,) and alt+fullstop (.) respectively. When you do that, the entire
clip will be selected.
Having digested all that, the quickest way to put your appended audio where you
want it is to select the clip with alt+fullstop. Press control+x to cut, then
move to where you want it and press control+v. One word (or several) of
caution. Make sure that when you move to where you want to paste that no audio
is selected or you will overwrite it.
You could also achieve the same result by selecting your newly recorded audio
manually. However, the use of clips saves some time.

Subject: [audacity4blind] inserting recording in the middle of a track
Thanks to all for your assistance so far. I’m going to record using Zoom and
probably edit using Audacity.
I see one difference between Audacity and Goldwave. (Obviously, there are a lot
of them, but one concerns me at present😊 With TW, you can set the start marker,
then record material which will appear at that point. From my limited trial,
with Audacity, the recording is appended. Do you have to create the recording
you want to insert, then paste it at the start marker location in order to
achieve this objective with Audacity?
