Coming up on Main Menu for the week of June 4 – Music

June 1, 2008 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker
Hello Everyone,
 
This week’s Main Menu is all about downloading and listening to music on your computer.  Presented by two music enthusiasts, Brian Hartgen and Anna Dresner, this programme demonstrates some of the ways in which you can access music services and software with a screen-reader.
 
First, you will hear about J-Tunes version 3.2 from T&T Consultancy, which links the JAWS screen-reader with the iTunes music management system from Apple.  You will learn how to install and use the J-Tunes product including listening to on-line radio stations, subscribing to Podcasts, purchasing tracks and albums from the iTunes Music Store and much more.
 
You will also hear about purchasing and managing content from Amazon’s MP3 store, EMusic and Napster. Find out how to use your screen-reader with these services.  The discussion surrounding these services is not restricted to JAWS usage.
