Depending on how you want to handle it, I would just import both of them into 
separate tracks, and then if necessary, use something like [ while playing to 
start selection at a certain point, then stop playback, and go have a look at 
where that point is, and then make sure music track is not selected, using 
enter key to toggle selection in track listings, focus on/make sure second 
track is selected, and then use something like time shifter effect to just 
shift that second track to start where I'd want it, ctrl + A to select all 
tracks, and space to listen again to make sure it was now aligned correctly, 
etc. etc.

But, do see that on tracks menu, there's an align to sub-menu, and the one item 
there is align to selection start/cursor, so should work in a pretty similar 
fashion if you can move cursor to relevant position first - edit menu, move 
cursor submenu, etc. etc.

Stay well

  Subject: [audacity4blind] overlapping two tracks

  Hello fellow Audacity users:

  I have an audio track and a dry voice track and I'd like to overlap the two, 
so that the dry voice track will begin playing at a certain point within the 
already existing audio file. Someone on the list said that the easiest way to 
do this, was to select the portion of the existing audio where you want the 
other track to begin, by playing the file and then pressing shift A. But it 
seems like there's one other step prior to that, which I can't quite remember 
what it is. Could someone explain again how to do this? Thanks.
