In this message I gave the link for the not officially released Audacity 2.2.0.  I have just been notified that there is a problem in the Spanish install, so be aware that there will be another release, and since I wasn't diligent about release procedures (I gave out the link before it was released!), I'll have to change the version number.  I will probably delete this release, in which case you can use the rc.2 <https://github.com/campg2j003/JAWS-Script-for-Audacity/releases/download/rel2.2.0-rc.2/Jaws-Script-for-Audacity_2_2_0-rc2.exe> version until we get this fixed.

Doesn't r append now?

Jim, since you're using JAWS, you might want to try the JAWS script for Audacity <https://www.github.com/campg2j003/JAWS-Script-for-Audacity/releases/download/rel2.2.0/Jaws-Script-for-Audacity_2_2_0.exe>.  It gives a lot of feedback and makes accessing some information, like the start and end time of the selection easier to get.  You can look at the README <https://github.com/campg2j003/JAWS-Script-for-Audacity>, press h a couple of times to get to the start of the README.

Hi Jim,
welcome to the list. Just out of interest, which audio editor are you using at the moment to record your shows?
There are a number of ways in Audacity  to do what you want to do, but perhaps the most straightforward is to have each voice break and each song as a separate track.
Some of the important points in doing this:
1. If you import some audio, which in your case would be a song, a new track is appended to the project, and the audio is inserted into that track. The shortcut for importing audio is ctrl+shift+I.
2. For recording each voice section, if you press shift+R, this records in new track at the end of the project. On the transport menu, there is a transport sub menu, where you should make sure that the overdub option is not checked, as you don't want to hear any of the other tracks when you record your voice.
3. When you've got all your tracks together, you then need to align the audio in the tracks so that they play after each other, rather than all at the same time. To do this, press ctrl+shift+k to select all the tracks, open the tracks menu, open the align tracks sub menu, and choose align end to end.

If you need more detailed information of certain issues, just mail the list,

    do both use my microphone and then, record files that I have in
    my music files? I am not a whiz at the computer so keep that in
     mind please. I am using windows ten, and jaws 18. I have
    audacity 2.2 installed. I need lots of help here. Frown. Thanks
    for your help in advance. Jim
