Hi again,

    I think you can even access the tag settings in Winamp under the file 
properties dialog box, I'll double check.

  Hello to all--

  For editing purposes, I use a program called Wavepad, its free, but you can 
pay for it like I did.
  Once you save the program file in mp3 format, in the file menu you have the 
option of creating ID3 tags, and with my use of www.libsyn.com as an upload 
service for creating feeds to my show, I have access to saving my files and 
creating ID3 tags which turn in to my show notes.

  In a previous podcast, Larry mentioned that he uses a program to tag his 
MP3's from www.softpointer.com.  I went to the site, and found a free program 
called Audioshell which integrates into Windows explorer and allows you to tag 
your files.  Well, first, they provided no directions on how to use the 
program.  I eventually figured out that if I open a file's properties, there 
were two new tabs added at the top: one for ID# information and one for ID3 tag 
editing.  When I went to the editor and tried to tab through the fields, my 
screen reader was silent.  Not only did it not read the field label, but it did 
not announce that I was in an edit box.  It was very difficult to figure out 
what fields were being filled in, especially since tab order does not move 
progressively down the screen.

  How have blind people gotten this program to work?  Is there something better 
out there?  Winamp 5.11 doesn't read the field labels correctly in its own tag 
editor, and I like having a separate program that doesn't require me to open or 
play the file in order to tag it.  I was able to tag my files using Foobar 
2000, but that was very time-consuming.
