Hi Carol.

Yes, I was going to ask you if that's what you were doing as I started reading your mail and your confirmation that tags were correct.

As you say, spacebar is to play and pause the track currently playing and the next after that. Focusing on another track and pressing spacebar won't start playing that new track, you have to press enter.

A handy short cut to get you to the track actually playing is control + L and that will move your focus back to that track in the music list.

Regards.

Kevin

HI Kevin,

Just want you to know that it was "human error" on my part.  I was doing
something stupid!  (Not new!)

I'd got into a habit of tapping the spacebar for start and stop in other
music programmes recently and transferred this to Itunes, forgetting that I
would only play/pause with spacebar and "Entger" on a song would then allow
that song to play.

Think I understand, even if I can't even explain it properly.

All appears to be well and thanks for your help.

Hi Carol.

Sounds like you have the wrong tag information stored for the actual track that plays.

You can edit the information in iTunes by using control + I when focused on the track in question.

The first tab gives you summary information such as the file type, size and location. Unfortunately, since version 11 of iTunes, this screen has been inaccessible to Jaws 13. Not sure if you can use it with Jaws 15 using your Jaws cursor to review the information.

The next tab in the dialogue is the information tab and here you can tab through each item such as artist, album, track title and simply enter the appropriate values.

In the control + I dialogue, you are changing the ID3 tags stored in the music file itself whether it be an MP3 file or AAC file.

With regards to optimising iTunes for easy use, the following link is helpful:

Hi Kevin,

Well, I sorted out how to do this from your instructions and you certainly did very well from memory!

I think I now need to get some more Itunes podcasts, focusing specifically on one particular aspect at a time, eg how to optimise latest Itunes for use with Jaws. (That's only an example, by the way.) In other words, I'm looking for some lessons now.

I know Jonathan Mosen's podcasts are very good but they're more overviews than specifics and don't give one time to take in one particular process.

Have you, or anyone else, any podcasts to recommend based on the above?

Finally, do you have an answer to the following problem which I created by not understanding which files I was supposed to delete having made ring tones. I now find that one of my songs has all the information about that song but always plays another track! I just don't know what to do about it. Thanks for any help you or anyone else can offer on this.

Carol P

Hi Carol.

To create a ring tone in iTunes:

1. Ensure that you have preferences set to convert to AAC when importing
2.  Locate the track in iTunes and use control 6 I to edit the details
3. In the Options or Advanced tab, not sure which, there is a start and end time. Set this so that it is for the portion you want as your ring tone and make sure it is no more than 30 seconds 4. Now that's done, use the applications key when focused on the track and choose convert to AAC from the menu 5. When complete in a second or two, you will now see 2 entries in your iTunes library for that track 6. Use control 6 C to copy the tone file you'e just created and paste it into your documents library or some other folder 7. Use the rename from file menu when focused on that tone file and change the extension from M4A to M4R. You will of corse need to be able to see the extension and so have this set to show in folder options 8. Now back in iTunes, use file menu and select Add File. Navigate to the folder with your tone and press enter. 9. Your tone will now import and go into the tone section of iTunes and will sync to your iPhone if you have it set to sync tones

When finished, don't forget to delete the shortened music track you created during this process and also to remove the start and end time values in the original music track.

This is from memory and so I hope it's pretty much there for you to use with a bit of tweaking perhaps where my memory has let me down.

Regards.

Kevin

Hi all,

Please can anyone help with the following:

1) My contacts miraculously appeared on my desktop soon after I started installing items, which is great, but haven't done so on my new laptop. How can I get these to my second machine in the most efficient manner?

2) Although I can sometimes get Outlook Express to work successfully when using options with the Shft6F10 menu and making an appropriate choice; in some circumstances I'm told that I don't have an email programme installed and, if I have, I should go to Control Panel and associate it with ... Oh dear, where do I go? Just can't find that one!

3) I'm tearing my hair out with ITunes these days and have always loathed it but always give in and use it to avail myself of my phones apps etc. I've been making ring tones and looked at loads of Help docs on changing the m41 extension of a file to m4r. However, I get lost in following the directions. I've tried a few converter apps, one of which worked great first time then wouldn't oblige again and aa few required me to log in and sign up, which I really object to having to do all the time! Can anyone help me with the instructions in creating a ring tone (M4R) from scratch, or suggest a really good utility to change the file types?

Thanks for any help you can give on these. Sorry I'm not that good with the computer these days ...
