Hello David,

The way I accomplish this task is by pressing shift-a while the file is 
playing. This stops the file and places the cursor at that place. Then press 
shift-end and that will select to the end of the file. In the new version of 
Audacity, a different command than shift-a is used and you'd have to ask 
somebody who uses that version or consult David Bales's guide on Audacity with 
JAWS. This guide does work when using other screenreaders. Hope this helps.
