How do the sighted use it without a screen?
Does it use something like TalkBox?

Actually, I just downloaded the new Itunes, and it is much much better
for accessibility. It is still a little odd, but at least you can tell
what is going on.

Actually, with regard to the Ipod Shuffle model, the problem is the
Itunes
software which is horrible for those of us that use screen readers.
The
device itself is perfectly accessible. Where RockBox could make a
huge
difference is with the other Ipod models that rely heavily on the
display.

RockBox for Ipods in my opinion would be huge and I really believe that
even
sighted Ipod users would love it as well.

I have an Ipod Shuffle, but would buy one of the other Ipod models that
are
hd based in a heartbeat if RockBox with its TalkBox support were
developed
for it.

Maybe its not as much about the iPod Shuffle itself but more about the
"Attach to computer, get music on it"?
