I don’t use VLC, but I set up a shortcut on my desktop to go to the folder where all the iTunes files are located.  The path is:

"C:\Users\Test\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media"

Replace test with your unique folder for your setup in the Users folder and you can get right to where the files are.

You may have a subfolder under iTunes Media called Music that then will have all the folders of the albums you have purchased.

I suspect VLC could be directed to that folder, if it supports m4A files.

After you purchased songs using Itunes, how do you get VLC to see the songs? What version of Itunes are you using? I have the most recent version and navigating is nearly impossible. I couldn’t find what you suggested below. Thanks, Kevinthem

I must admit I don’t use  playlist at all with iTunes but for standard album playing the normal iTunes advice for use with screenreaders is to change the default album view to songs  view in the sidebar table.

You can then enable column browser which will sort  and organise your iTunes library into easy columns of artist albums and songs, and Genres also it you wish though I normally disable this particular column.

Column browser view is only available once songs view has been enabled.

Whether this helps with playlists I am not sure.

Basically I use iTunes as a shop and for iTunes Match and little else, preferring to use VLC for my actual music playing.

I started to use Itunes with Jaws 2019 and doesn’t work to well. I have a hard time with the playlists I created to show. Then when I navigate around eventualy a certain playlist shows. At least I thought it did. Then I press enter on the play button and it plays a song in a different playlist. Is there a way to change something in Jaws settings or Itune settings to get it to work better?

It isn't any worse.

What areas are you most concerned with?




Always look out for #1, and be careful not to step in #2.

I have been putting off letting ITunes update to the latest version.  Before I do I thought I’d find out if I will regret it.
