Re: latest itunes gives me trouble



BlindTunes is no longer supported -- John Martyn gave it up years ago. I
doubt anyone is monitoring the DoItBlind website for BlindTune matters.

Subject: latest itunes gives me trouble

i tried posting the following in a form on the blindtunes/do it blind
site, but sending it requires verification that i'm not a robot; without
an add-on like webvisum and no checkbox saying i'm not a robot, i find
this impossible without sighted help. here's what i wrote:
today i spoke with an apple support rep regarding a shortage of storage
space on my iphone, and after a series of brick walls trying to restore
my iphone, i was prompted to download the latest update to itunes on my
windows 7 desktop, which has disabled the accessibility and
controllability of earlier versions. i can't find a way, using nvda or
jaws, to get to the itunes radio tree view to select favorite stations,
like i did before. please advise the version of nvda/jaws/itunes needed
to restore itunes' functionality and accessibility with a screenreader,
giving access to the different tree views like radio, library, store,
etc., plus how to install any necessary scripts. reverting to an
earlier itunes version may block any future attempts to restore my
iphone. thanks.

This may have been posted already so if so I am sorry. But iTUnes 12 sucks
for accessibility. For me it did anyways. I am using jaws 2018 and updated
itunes to 12. Bad mistake. I found it impossible to navigate or return my
views of genre artist song from left to right in that order back from how
i had it in itunes11. I reverted back to older itunes11. Also, be sure you
keep a backup copy of itunes library folder in case you ever want to go
back to whatever version you currently have. Once you update older
versions of itunes wont be able to read any library files touched by newer
versions of iTUnes. Neweversions corrupt them for older versions. Library
folder located c users userName appData roaming apple computers itunes
folder. Unhide hidden files and protected protected operating files to
find it if you dont type it into the address bar instead. Sorry for
length. Just thought someone may find it helpful. ITUnes 12 may have been
out for a while. But just in case i can save anyone else all the time i
have spent last day or so this post will have been worth it
