To Everyone Interested in AudibleManager:

I have been working very closely with the folks at audible since
mid-December to improve the accessibility of the newest version of Audible
Manager.  Their developer even came to my house a couple of times so I could
show him what was needed to make AudibleManager as accessible as possible.
The newest version, has just been released and is available at the
audible site.

Furthermore, I have written new scripts for this version of AudibleManager
which have just been posted on the FS website.  All of the information
needed to download the new version of AudibleManager and the scripts is
shown in the FAQ which I have copied below.  Please note that these scripts
are for JAWS 7.0 only.  They may not work properly for earlier versions of

I wish to commend audible for their interest and dedication to making their
software accessible.  Please support this company as they have worked very
hard to give us what we need.
