In iTunes you can set the view preferences to either album artist or song. The default is album but you need to change this to songs for column view to be possible.

You need to tab to the library sidebar view table and from there use the drop down menu to change it from album to songs.

Now suddenly you will be able to use the menu view option to enable column  browser.

Life will be much easier then. Once column browser is enabled   you can determine which columns you want visible. Personally I do not use the Genre column.

How do I enable column browser for iTunes in JAWS 2019?




Love in Christ


For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,

against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the

spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist

in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

Ephesians 6:12, 13

Dear Sarah

Thanks for taking this initiative.

I have been quietly adding programs to the list based on people's

suggestions and the list is now quite expanded, especially in the utilities

category. I was going to post this expanded list to the list anyway  in a

few days but you have prompted me to post it earlier.

As a start I have included some but definitely not all download links in the

below list already.

Many of the free and trial programs are available from the excellent

Screenreader Accessible Page at

Where this is the case I have included the nimite link for convenience.

Other download links are also included if known at the time of writing.

So this is the complete expanded latest list as of today. I anticipate that

it will expand more.

HI all,


We discussed a resources list last month, I've been working on a site for a

client recently and have added this page to their site. It can be found at: I'm still updating the list, so as many

URL's as I've been able to find as of now are loaded.

I've also removed the categories listing as I didn't find it necessary.

I will be reorganizing the list to have all apps "included with windows"

in the same section, most likely at the bottom of the list as they won't

have URL's. I look forward to updating this list as more resources are

approved by the group.


If I missed anything, or anyone wants to add to the other lists on the page,

please do let me know, I'll gladly update!
