Well do not use them myself, but their attitude is surely unacceptable and arrogant in the extreme in my view. I'd actually report this to the blind organisations in the country they are in and let them have a poke at them. I would imagine they might well be shooting themselves in the foot if they stop supporting things that actually work in favour of some snazzy heap of windows app which is a format many people seem to think ill conceived and pretty dire even for the sighted.
Yes its probably more secure, but that is not the main issue.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and the audible app


Hi,
This is mainlya request for the developers, but I'm posting it here hoping someone tells me I am mistaken.
I use the Aubible website for Audio book purchases and downloads. I conteacted Audible with a request of helping me fix an issue with the Audible download manager.
WHile they helped me fix the issue, the woman warned me that they would eventually phase out the Audible download manager because of the Audible app for Windows 10.
As of right now, unless I am very much mistaken, NVDA nor JAWS will work with the Audible app for Windows 10.
I would ask that someone look into this as it may become necessary for those of us that use the website to use the app to download books in the future.
The lady I talked to said she could not give me a time frame on when they would do away with the Audible download manager, but that they had already stopped updating it.
Regards
Chris
