Re: NVDA and the audible app

This is not a real replacement for the download manager or the app,
but their iOS app is accessible, and so is their web-based cloud
player, so at least there are other online and offline ways of
listening. Still, I agree that releasing an inaccessible Windows app
was very 20th century on their part and, being market leader in this
field, they are beyond excuse.

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

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
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.
