Categories give you a way to find pages on the wiki. If you're interested in how we go from feature requests to features being implemented in Audacity then Category:Feature Planning should list the relevant pages. Some categories are wide, like Category:For Developers. Others are narrower and have fewer pages, like Category:For Blind Users. The largest categories generally contain smaller categories too. Category:For Blind Users is a sub category of Category:For Users. If you didn't know it existed, you'd find it on visiting the larger category page.
Category links appear at the bottom of most pages.
Remember that this is a wiki and in a constant state of flux. Don't expect the organisation to be perfectly hierarchical and perfectly logical. Particularly in larger categories you may need to drill down into the subcategories to see the less 'high profile' pages.
- Category:Category gives a list of categories on this wiki as well as some general tips on searching. That makes sense because it is the top level category, and people may end up there when they are lost.
- You can get a comprehensive list of all categories from Special:Categories. This list has the advantage that as well as naming the categories it shows the number of articles in each category too.
Each category page should have a brief introduction. At this current moment some of those intros are as follows:
|This category is for pages that are relevant to using Audacity.
|Pages in this category are likely only to be of interest to developers.
|This category has pages with information for anyone wanting to edit this Wiki, and also some information for editors of our Wiki-based Manual.
|On this Wiki only the most basic help on editing can be given. The current main page on editing is: Audacity Wiki editing.
|This category contains online resources for users to meet each other, read our developer news or contact our Team.
- These pages are more about the social, organizational and psychological side of Audacity and only indirectly about technology.

Adding Categories to Pages
If you want to add a category to a page, look at an existing categorised page to see how it is done. The category is added as a link at the foot of the page. The order matters. Generally we try to have the wider categories first and the narrower categories later. There is a fuller explanation here.
