Re: Coding iTunes

Yes, but I think it would be easier to build your own interface like I 
mentioned below than make a webpage interface.
I know nothing about programming but having all the information on one line, 
track artist and album would be very nice.
I think it would be easier to program than building a webpage looking thing.
Thanks,

NBrandon:


The way you navigated the iTunes store previously (I still don't know if it was 
jaws 12 or iTunes who broke it) was just like a webpage. You have headings 
saying for example "artist name" then you got a level 2 heading saying "albums 
of artist" and from there on all the itmes where the albums. You could enter 
them and check and listen to the individual tracks and hit the "buy button'". 
But since the iTunes store was broken I have been looking for other options. 
This is why I mentioned the jTunes scripts. They only make a few things in 
iTunes accessible and for 75 dollars they are not worth it. If I could navigate 
the iTunes store, maybe. But they are just not worth 75 dollars.

I'm not sure if it could be possible to make the layout kind of like Windows 
Media player where you tab with 1 tab to the different options and use the 
arrow keys as lower level navigational keys?
Now I get lost on ITunes when I use tab and f6 is confusing as well. Also 
removing any extra cymbals buttons or words would be nice...
Also it would be really awesome to move down the ITunes store with the up and 
down arrow keys, so I go to songs and hit the down arrow and it sais the name 
of the song and the artist and the album, then I right arrow and it sais play 
and I right arrow again and it sais buy.
Or even just hitting inter on the name of the song hitting the play and one 
press of the right arrow is buy, although a message will need to be put up at 
the first song saying that's how to play the demo...
Also proper control of sliders and clear ability to read the information coming 
from the radio would be really nice.
Thank you,

Yes, I know about the multi select issue. Didn't know about the iTunes store 
part. Wow, that is a steep price for jTunes. iTunes won't be too difficult 
actually.

  Well, look at the jTunes and build from there. Just kidding. Even though the 
jTunes cost 75 dollars, they don't bring to much to the party. Well, 
suggestions on what I want on iTunes. Well, access to the help file. Second, 
since jaws 12 or iTunes 10.2.1 (don't know which one) broke the iTunes store, 
the iTunes store would be very nice. A way to imput data or create an account 
without turning the virtual cursor off. A way to get all the easily accessible 
information for sighted people (track name, time, number of tracks, etc.) in an 
easy matter. Jaws iimput when selecting tracks via the control plus spacebar 
method. Those are just of a few suggestions. I am going to left this open for 
people's imput.

  ITunes is a good one. I know that some of it can't be accessed easily without 
the jaws cursor. Definately an easier app to work with since they are Microsoft 
accessibility access friendly. Plus I noticed that they leave the JSS file open 
to scripters. Just in case we wanted to add to it. Give your thoughts on what 
we want iTunes to do. I definately use iTunes myself and it is a popular app. 
As far as the need, we still have to hear more input from everyone. Good 
suggestion.

    Hmmm... I would like to see scripts (free scripts if possible) for iTunes. 
I downloaded the jTunes scripts (version 5.5) and I did not like them at all. 
They did not added much to the party and there are some parts of iTunes that 
since version 10.2.1 have become completely inaccessible. E.G. the iTunes store.


    Other program I would love to see a script being developed is for DVD fab 
platnum. 


    I am thinking of a couple, but I doubt there will be any interest among 
blind persons, so I won't mention them. At least for now.

    Subject: Coding for a new jaws accessible app


    Hi folks,
    As my 32nd birthday approaches, I think I am going to make a habit of 
picking one new application per year to make jaws accessible. Picking Rhapsody 
was not an easy task, but it taught me many things about an application that 
seems next to impossible to make behave. I am taking off this summer from 
school and will have the time to code a new application. Rhapsody Blind was a 
test to see if I could pull it off, and it worked. I selfishly chose the first 
one, now I'm looking for the popular vote on what you might want. I probably 
won't start until this semester is over at the end of May, so this gives plenty 
of time to decide. It would be a good idea to chat among each other and find 
out what is needed or just plain want for entertainment purposes. So, let's 
open up the floor and hear some suggestions.
    Thanks,
    John Martyn
