Subject: More accessible audible Manager V. coming soon

I just got off the phone with tech support at Audible, and in the course of
our conversation, the representative mentioned that the Audible developers
have been revising Audible Manager 5 to interact better with screen readers,

and will soon release the update for download and installation.

the screen reader user who has been acting as their consultant and beta
tester on this effort has also been preparing an instruction sheet for this
tweaked version of the interface, which I think he means to make available
to the rest of us.

I asked the person if Audible was planning to post an announcement when the
update was available, and so far as he knows, the only plans so far are to
add mention of it to the Audible Frequently Asked Questions page.
I suggested they might do well to make sure that someone, maybe this
consultant himself, posts an announcement right here to this list.  I
emphasized that although the Jaws-unfriendliness of Audible Version 5 was
discussed on the list, no one seems to be thinking of the FAQ page as a
place to check every day, without expectations, to see if there might be
some mention of this issue.

So, we may soon be told about some good accessibility news, enabling more of

us to upgrade to the latest version of Audible Manager without fear and
