The bad thing I know of is that I have to manually get my technology review subscription instead of having it automatically come in like audible had years ago. I think the major issues are with jaws because arrowing through the list opens that web page with the info in instead of just going down the list. Using the jaws command to close that detail thing says no detail view present, but the scripts are old. I'm going to try deleting them to see if that makes it better.

Hi All,

I am curious why I am so in the minority on this one. The current version of audible manager works fine for me. I am using Window-Eyes and about all I do with audible manager is download from my audible library and occasionally play a book with the desktop player. I do have to use the mouse pointer to do a few things but for me it is very doable. Perhaps you all are doing more complicated things with audible manager or perhaps it works better with Window-Eyes than with jaws.

Don't get me wrong, I will welcome a more accessible version but am just not really having serious problems with the current version. One nice thing about the current version is the fact that it will start a download from the audible library in the background without first launching audible manager.

Of course, I meant the 98 version of Audible Manager...

Let me second Lynette's suggestion that you download and use the Windows 95
version of the Audible Manager. This is per an Audible tech support person,
but actually for the reason I was having problems with burning CD's. I just
had to install to a new PC recently and snagged the 95 edition and it still
works great.
