I am afraid it is already here and not 3 years away at least here in the UK
I found last night when I went to my audible Library the download facility now takes you to a so called “help” page which only gives the option of using Audible iOS, Android, Echo etc and Windows 10.
There is an apparent option to use iTunes but if you follow the help on that it states you need the Audible app installed.
As it is now imposible to download directly from the website this is very bad news indeed.
I tried to open a “chat”with Audible support but after stating the problem they did not respond at all- I waited for 30 minutes for any acknowledgement.
So for me as of last night Audible appears inaccessible for blind users of Windows and also for devices like the victor Reader Stream/Trek and Pocket Plextalk which could until last week support the playing of Audible books.
As I am now blocked from accessing something like 60 books that I have paid for over the years I am not a happy customer.

Eventually covers a long period of potential time. Are they going to cause problems for Windows 7 users and Windows 8 users while there are still many around? This sounds like something that may be perhaps three years away. I don't know when support for Windows 8 ends and support for Windows 7 is ending a little over a year from now.
Also, why assume the worst case? Why contact blindness organizations first? Why not discuss it with Audible and see what happens. Audible has a good record on accessibility. If there is a problem, talking with them may cause it to be solved.

Well do not use them myself, but their attitude is surely unacceptable and
