Is it accessible w/ a screen reader? If so, that would work!

That's easy to deal with. Go make an account on MusicBrainz
(www.musicbrainz.org AFAIK) and download their MB Tagger. It will read
all of your MP3s, OGG Vorbis files, and a whole list of other formats,
and rename/retag/organize your files (just make sure before you start
that you have its config set up the way you want it. Read every settings

tab). The tagger program will ask you to donate to MusicBrainz every
time, but you can safely hit No Thanks.

That program will do a frequency analysis of your songs and match them
to songs in their database that have already been analyzed. You can help

them out, too--sort of a Wikipedia for music project. The tagger
application is not the smoothest of apps, but it will work with a little

guidance.

Oh, just thought of this--hope you're running Windows, because AFAIK
MusicBrainz doesn't have a Linux/Mac/whatever else port.

Good luck,
