Need Itunes help for the visually impared

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My brother (who is blind) received a ipod for christmas. Being blind, he is unable to use the mouse, and instead relies on keyboard shortcuts and a text to speech program to get around on the PC. Getting itunes to work has been a little difficult. He can get songs from a CD to the music library by himself, but we don't know how to put songs on the ipod. are there any keyboard shortcuts to copy songs from the library to the ipod? I know there is a hotkey to create a playlist, is there a shortcut to copy a playlist to the ipod? any help would be greatly appreciated!

I dont know the hotkeys myself, but I do know what when you setup the iPod, you can set it up to automaticly synch a playlist to it (by default it synchs "(persons name)'s iPod selection". If the iPod is bigger then your music collection, it will synch everything. If not, if you can figure out a way to add tracks to that playlist with the hotkey, you will be set!

great! but what about ejecting the ipod? is there a short cut for that? maybe he could just wait a few minutes and yank it?

If it's set up to sync, then you just need to unplug it when it's done. I know on my Mac you just do that...I have it setup so I can say "Open iTunes" and that's all it needs.

thanks for the help guys. we've figured it out to some degree. there are still some problems, for instance: not all albums have entries in the album information database. these info-less songs are pretty much useless to him. Luckily itunes notifies him if there isnt an entry so he can chose not to load that cd.
