Hi Kane,Yeah I've had the same problems with Napster. It's good in that you can log on, search for music, and buy or download music. And yes, it does involve your having to use the Jaws cursor quite a bit. But the application is a nightmare to navigate if you try to do anything more than that. The tabs or buttons located at the top of the window can sometimes be located by Jaws, but most of the time, this is not the case. And trying to use the graphics labeler does precious little to help. Some of the other buttons located in the window are impossible to locate with Jaws. For instance, I had a download that fialed and I needed to navigate to another screen in order to re-download the file. Well, there's a Library button on the screen that you need to press, and Jaws simply is not able to read this button. Compared to Itunes though, Napster is more acceisble if you don't happen to have the Itunes scripts. It would be nice if some scripts were made for Napster. I'm happy that I'm at least able to play, download and buy music tracks with Napster.

Near the end of 2003 I downloaded a short set of scripts for Napster that were designed for Napster Client 126.96.36.199. These were offered, I believe, on AccessiblePrograms.com, but are not any more. Since the iTunes Music Store is largely inaccessible to me as a blind PC user, especially when it comes to downloading or buying full albums, I've thought recently about Napster and have gotten a trial subscription to start with. But I've noticed the Napster client software is up to Ver. 188.8.131.52 now, and JAWS doesn't seem to respond to it well without scripts. Brian, I singled you out on this message because you've written on the Blind iPod list that you use this service and are happy with it. But I find that I must use the JAWS cursor to do most of the navigating; and selecting exactly what I want and getting to all the background info and all available albums is tricky, with the Virtual PC Cursor sometimes working and sometimes not. Anyone have tips? I haven't seen this issue discussed on the JFW list since 2004. -Kane -- JFW related links: JFW homepage: http://www.freedomscientific.com/Scripting mailing list: http://lists.the-jdh.com/listinfo.cgi/scriptography-the-jdh.comJFW List instructions: To post a message to the list, send it to jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxxTo unsubscribe from this mailing list, send a message to jfw-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word unsubscribe in the subject line.Archives located at: http://www.freelists.org/archives/jfwIf you have any concerns about the list, post received from the list, or the way the list is being run, do not post them to the list.
