Screen-Reader Version on macOS
- For visually impaired users on macOS, we currently recommend using Audacity 2.1.1-screen-reader .dmg file (38.61 MB download)
- Audacity on Windows is only available as a 32-bit application that may be used on 32-bit or 64-bit systems.
- For macOS Audacity 2.4.2 is 64-bit.
- For Windows 7 and earlier, legacy versions of Audacity are available on the Legacy Windows downloads page.
- For macOS 10.12 (Sierra) and earlier, legacy versions of Audacity are available on the Legacy Mac downloads page.
- For Linux, the appropriate version of Audacity for your operating system is usually included in your distribution’s repository. Due to reported problems with SnapCraft / Flatpak / PPA versions, our current recommendation for Ubuntu / Mint users is to install the “deb” version from the main repository. Source code and user manuals for some old versions are available on FossHub.
- Although there are a number of sellers of Audacity software on ebay and Amazon, none of these sellers are affiliated to Audacity, and none have contributed in any way to the Audacity project. Audacity is free software.
