Subject: RE: Why not iPod?

RE: Why not iPod?

From: Sarai <bucc7465_at_bellsouth.net>

If its ported, then I'm buying an Ipod so I can play my audible books on
it as well. An extra 40 GB of hd space is nice too. How do you navigate
the screen? Isn't the newer versions of I Pod a touch screen? I knew
Anapod was accessible but I was talking about Itunes.

Anapod explorer *is* accessible, i know this because I have it and use
it
whenever I transfer something to my shuffle. I like it *much* better
than
crappy iTunes!
The only access issue that I can see with Anapod Explorer is that there
is
a slight focus issue when dealing with the list of songs
you'vetransfered
to your iPod. It's there, but you have to route your pc cursor to your
JAWS cursor in order for it to work. so a script could fix that
problem. But in any event that's neither here nore there and off topic
here so let me get things back on track by saying that if a port of
Rockbox
will be made for the iPod, i will be one happy human being. and i know a

lot of other blind and visually impaired folks will as well.
