It is accessible in the most minimalist definition of accessible.

I'm not sure why people are saying iTunes isn't accessible, although it may not be the best layout for a screen reader, as far as I'm aware its fully accessible. I don't use it much and maybe there are features I'm not using which aren't accessible, but I can add music to the library, create playlists, transfer music to my iphone and manage my iPhone from within itunes all without any sighted assistance using only jaws. I know others have already suggested using shift and tab to navigate, also F6 and shift F6 are two other really handy keystrokes which move you between sections.
Rather than having to cycle through each option as you do when tabbing, F6 quickly moves you from one section to another, meaning less key presses to navigate between different sections of the program.

Hi yes you are all correct apple has made no attempts to make their itues software accessible with JAWS!

One solution I would do if you have aira is have them help you by having aira log into the computer with team viewer and then telling the aria agent what you ant to do for example moving music from widnwos into itues and then having them transfer it to your iphone or ipdad.

I know most of you want to do thsi independently but Apple will not make any changes to their program.

Unfortunately, if you have a mac then it works properly, howveer most people wnat a pc and they should make changes to. I wonder if we should all write apple and demand they fix this.

I know the NFB sued apple for accessability and maybe it's time for that to hapen again or the acb necds to put a fire uncder them!

I hope this heops.
