I agree. Itunes is essential for using the iphone, the iphone is arguably
the most accessible smart phone out there, and for the windows and jaws user
there needs to be a good solution. J-tunes just isn't keeping up and as
noted, it really doesn't "bring that much to the party." 

Tiptoeing around in itunes is frustrating at best and disruptive at worst.
It would be nice to have stronger jaws scripting for the application. As
noted, the iStore currently throws the limited functionality of jaws and
itunes on its ear.

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



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
