hi Bruce,
actually this library problem doesn't border me either, but just for the sake 
of helping others might need it. i just ask a sighted 
friend and she told me that the library is looks different because of the 
graphic, so i think this can be solf by modify the jaws 
script but too bad i have no knoledge in this area. so, before we take the 
steps that talk to the developer, i think we should ask 
some one that expert in jaws scripting to assist us in this problem. just a 

Warmest Regards,

I've done a little investigating on my own here. I truly want to help
with respect to the library. It's not an issue I personally have an
interest i, but it's important to enough people that I want to be a part
of the solution. Someone's going to have to break down and get sighted
assistance for this.

First, register for the forums. You'll need sighted help here. Then send
a private e-mail to one of the moderators of the tech support forum. Tha
person likely isn't going to be able to help you directly, but you have
to start somewhere. Very nicely, tell that person who you are and why
you're writing. Tell them that the visual verification makes the forums
inaccessible to us without sighted assistance, but that there's no other
apparent way to contact the people in charge of the program. Tell the
person, nicely, that there are still accessibility issues with the
Winamp library, explaining that these accessibility issues make the
Winamp library unusable for us. Don't just assume that your concepts are
understood without explanation. Don't be condescending either, of
course. Ask ther person nicely if it would be possible for them to
arrange for you to directly contact a developer, so you can help try to
track down what the accessibility problems are and how best to fix them.
Emphasize that you want to work with these people as part of the
solution, not just complain about the problem. Whoever does this should
be a techie, someone who knows what blind people want from the Winamp
library, and someone who knows how to talk the computer language of the
sighted. This is how things get done. No we can't directly contact a
developer right now. But everyone has a chain of communication, and if
we can access a link on the chain, we can eventually reach the end of
