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

  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 

  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.

  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.
