How To Record & Edit Audio Using Audacity

If you’ve ever thought about podcasting, it can be difficult to know exactly where to start.

How do you get your content online, should you look into getting a website, what equipment do you need? There can be so many questions that the whole process seems daunting. It’s enough to put anyone off.

A great place to start is to simply just record something. Whatever it is you want to share with people, it’s not going to be heard until you record it. Thankfully, there are quite a few accessible options for us as visually impaired people when it comes to audio software. The one that I personally use for all my recording and audio editing is called Audacity. It’s free, available for Windows or Mac and very accessible. Of course, we all know what it’s like when you first open a new app or program that you’ve never used before. You just don’t know where to start. Well, maybe this will help.

In this guide, I’ll show you everything you need to know in order to get started. I’ll show you around the interface of Audacity, how to record or open audio, how to edit audio and finally, how to create the finished audio file. So, grab a computer and a microphone and let the world know what’s on your mind…

  1. The captcha is preventing me to access audacityteam.org website. How to get rid of this? I am using NVDA screen reader.

    • Hi, I don’t know where you found captcha codes on Audacity Team website. I have downloaded without problems. Probably what prevent the downloads in your case is a false positive of your antivirus. but it is no captcha code there. You don’t need any account to download the program from website.
