Downloading Re: [nvda] Blindspot may need to close because of Spotify's changing API.

Wow that's interesting! I'm wit Spotify Premium, but I take it the app is only for Windows10? I'm on 7. When you say download, can you transfer them onto an mP3 player for instance to play outside of Spotify?

I use the regular spotify program for pre windows 10 devices.

The windows 10 app is usable, but you can't up or down arrow because of the store app designs and need to use object nav or tab. Apart from that, though, the layout is exactly the same and you can even find local playlists from iTunes and windows media player to import into spotify.

I also want to say that with a premium account downloading songs to your computer is possible, too.

Hope that helps some

Again, I'm confused.

What part of spotify's web interface is inaccessible?

Everyone keeps saying that so I must be missing something. I see all of the controls, songs, ability to remote control other devices.

Seriously, help me out here guys. I can right click on a song and add it to my playlist and it's no better or worse than any other web interface I've used. The results for said right click show up at the bottom of the screen, just like they do with something like resilio.

Spotify has always been accessible on devices since I've been using it, including mobile, at least since 2013.

Also I think i heard somewhere that Google Play music, has a Windows program that allows you to listen online, and/or download your music onto the computer, especially good for folks like my Dad because of generational things, he wants for music to be available on his mP3 Sansa player, USB and other media he can listen to wihtout depending of an app and a SmartPHone.

as far as an accessible web interface is concerned, I can recommend Google Play Music. It uses headings, has keyboard shortcuts, all buttons have reasonable descriptions, and if used with Chrome it doesn't even require the security risk called Flash. It's an accessibility success story too few people know about, in sharp contrast to Spotify which, in my opinion, never really cared.

I'll say no more but I had thought with flash being discontinued the age

of inaccessible web content was over.
