I have a friend who is blind and enjoys listening to music. But he struggles with Windows Media Player; it's difficult for him to navigate to the song he wants, or control playback.

I'd like to find him a straightforward music player with good screen-reader support (he uses JAWS) that can be controlled easily using only the keyboard (ideally without having to memorize complicated keyboard shortcuts).

Any suggestions?

Shog, you are asking for software on Super User? FOR SHAME! -.- JK – Canadian Luke May 22 '14 at 0:24

iTunes is supported by JAWS 10 and higher.

Edit: This blog details the shortcuts

Apple addresses accessibility with great care. You can couple iTunes with a screenless iPod shuffle as well. – mouviciel Sep 30 '09 at 19:49
Interesting... Hadn't even considered iTunes. Thanks! – Shog9 Sep 30 '09 at 21:15
