Hi Ken,
Thanks so much for all of your work with this! I really appreciate the 
help you're giving us now and also your part in the article. It was your 
post that got it all rolling. I hope you let Jenifer know we included a 
link to her site.

I have also posted it to GoArticles.com and it is awaiting approval for 
EzineArticles.com and ArticlesBase.com -- these last two don't allow all 
the links, but it's exposure, nonetheless. I also posted to NFB of PA, 
the NFB Writers Division and the Guide Dog Foundation (Smithtown, NY). 
Also, I posted to the list Derek Sivers started, Music Thoughts, which 
you might find interesting.

As far as the company goes, Joel Andrew wrote to me saying he's been mis 
speaking when he said the problems were due to flash. He says it's 
really Java. I talked to Wes Majerus at the NFB's Access Technology 
Center, and he says there are ways of making Java accessible, so I sent 
his contact info to Joel.

The last time I visited the site, I noticed that my screen reader no 
longer even notices the "flash movie start ... "Flash movie end"  
They've re labeled some of the buttons to get rid of some of the 
gobblety-gook that we were hearing, and the select checkboxes which had 
been inconsistently appearing in various places seemed to be 
consistently at the end of the information for each song. But, there's 
no way to preview anything. My guess is that you might be able to buy 
things if you don't mind not previewing, but I didn't try it.
