hi there yes with ootunes i can hear the cricket on sports extra the sound
quality is as good as the ipod nanno when listening to the radio on that
device. apple especially with this new upgrade should be congratulated on
accessability for us just look at the new phone that is coming out done by
microsofft nothing for us blind people at all not access. i have just read
this in the pc advisor and pc plus and computer shopper mag. as jackie says
you can go in to the apple store either get them to set up voice over for
you or take the phone home get on itunes and do it yourself just like that.
you do not have the #600 or #700 extra for the screenreader like window eyes
and jaws and also you do not have to keep paying out lots of money for the
upgrades. just look at the jaws upgrades every time one comes out we have to
shell out again. i would love to show other blind people how i manage the
iphone. in three months i am truly amazed what i have achieved with it. we
have no sight  here pat cannot see at all the same as me and i have done all
this without any help from anyone else. i still will not be without my talks
as i have the best of both worlds so to speak i just wish this iphone if
everyone bought an electric piano could tune the damn things via the web
there by saving all this travell 1smile, smile 1smile, very interesting
though in two weeks to see the new iphone software. i understand the sky app
has been updated so you can use it on 3 g.
