News Wire:

In 2005, long before access to iTunes was easier for visually
impaired people to access than it is now, T&T Consultancy developed
J-Tunes - an interface linking the popular JAWS for Windows
screen-reader and the iTunes music management system. In 2009, they
presented to Accessible World iTunes Version 4, considerably enhancing
the basic functionality output from the screen-reader to iTunes.

T&T Consultancy have now just launched J-Tunes Version 5, providing
high quality access to the latest release of iTunes, version 9.2. This
release of iTunes is essential when transferring material to the newer
iPod and iPhone range. They have pleasure in coming back to Accessible
World's Tek Talk webinar program to tell you about the new features
and how they will be regularly providing new features to the software
during 2010. In particular, they have been asked to spend time giving
you useful tips and tricks concerning how to use JAWS 11 and to gain
the most from the iTunes Store and so the majority of the presentation
will focus upon this area of iTunes.

Brian Hartgen, T&T Consultancy's Product Development Manager, will
give a live demonstration of J-Tunes including its interaction with
the Store. The second part of the presentation will take the form of
questions from the audience and Anna Dresner, who has a wealth of
expertise in the area of iTunes access and who is the author of books
on the subject, will be on hand to answer questions with Brian. So do
bring your questions along; they look forward to answering them.
