Re: MixPad and WavePad - NCH Software

Hi all.

I used WavePad for a small edition. The accessibility is good, but I only use this audio editor for insert a part of other audio in a part of an audio recorder or small operations, with the version free. And in this case, if I want select a part of the audio for delete, when you press shift+ arrow keys the audio also is playing but more faster.

For complete works, I prefer Reaper, or a good option is also Audacity. Now, I use Wavepad for smalls and fast editions like delete a part, add other, join, and for more things Reaper, but also I have experience with Audacity.

Yeah..I have played with it a bit myself. But when my recently imploded band recorded our stuff, we used Cubase and I didn’t do the daw work – and I’m one of those people who bought Goldwave and, it suits my personal audio editing needs somewhat better though it is not a multi-track editor. So I haven’t really touched Audacity in years.

Ding, ding, ding!!   It's also accessible and it's also powerful.  Unless you're a professional who's doing this stuff constantly, which I am not, Audacity gives you tools you can't get otherwise without cost, and the tradeoffs with speed and "beauty of UI" are more than worth it, at least to me.

There are lots of screen reader users, regardless of whether it's NVDA or another, that use Audacity because of its accesibility in every sense of the word.
