Legacy Tutorials for old versions of Audacity

These tutorials as for legacy and obsolete versions of Audacity.


Off-site Tutorials on the web

Peter 17Apr14: ToDo-1 Gale wrote in a reply to a poster on the forum "It is rarely a good idea to read online tutorials on other sites. The tutorials are often incorrect or don't say what version of Audacity or what operating system they relate to.". I absolutely agree with this sentiment. Most of these tutorials were written long ago and are never maintained or updated and as Gale says usually relate to very old versions of Audacity. I set the P1 here as I believe we should certainly remove this section from the new "Non-legacy Wiki" after the planned Wiki split. I would even suggest that it would make sense to delete this section right now.
  • Peter 17Apr14 later: I went through and noted the dates/versions that these tutorials relate to and added an "alert" warning for readers. Only David Bailes JAWS guide relates to current Audacity.
