Alternatives to Itunes for digital audio management
This is to reply to those on the current thread about using ITunes.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I personally do not care for the ITunes that much. Although I have also not really tried that hard.
I have read things about consumer protection that concern me.
I have been using Media Monkey for my media database program.
This program is pretty great, powerful and versatile, but it does not use keyboard shortcuts as well as I would like. It is free, or you can purchase an inexpensive Gold version for lifetime of upgrades. After adjustments, I have been able to use it pretty well with JAWS, though I could use some tips from more powerful JAWS users.
I have been using Windows Media Player for ripping music to my library.
However, since getting a Windows 7 machine, I find I am not yet comfortable with how to navigate in the newer version 12 of Windows Media Player. so I have been looking for other CD extractor programs, ones that have very good metadata sources to find as much detail as possible. The 2 that I am running now on a trial basis are listed below. they both seem to work pretty well with JAWS.
Easy CD-DA Extractor
If anyone has knowledge or experience using these programs, especially with JAWS, I would like to hear your comments or for you to contact me off list.

Yes, agree. Aside from syncing my iPod to my books and music libraries, I
now use iTunes for ripping all my CDs. It does a much better job of
organizing the tracks and their titles into sensible folders, and allows
easy editing of the album information prior to ripping. I could never get
that level of control with Windows Media Prayer. And iTunes with the
BlindTunes scripts is much more accessible than WMP.
I may even look into using iTunes to burn CDs some day, but for now use Nero
Express OEM or Express Burn from NCH. Both of these are very accessible to
