Apple has today released iTunes 12.4.1 to the public, bringing bug fixes for VoiceOver and other features.
According to Apple's release notes via MacRumors, iTunes 12.4.1 includes the following improvements:
This update addresses a number of problems where iTunes doesn't work as expected with VoiceOver. It also restores the option to Reset Plays and fixes the following issues:
- Up Next may have unexpectedly played songs added together in the incorrect order.
- iTunes was prevented from crossfading between songs.
At this time, it is unclear the extent of the VoiceOver improvements in iTunes 12.4.1. However, one of our testers noted that the issue with some list views not being read by some Windows screen readers has been resolved. If you encounter any accessibility-related fixes or regressions in this release, please let us know in the comments section below.
Coming less than 3 weeks after the release of version 12.4, Apple’s Accessibility Team must be commended for so quickly addressing the problems which were introduced in that release for screen reader users.
iTunes 12.4.1 is available via Software Update on Mac OSX, Apple Software Update on Windows, or at http://www.apple.com/iTunes/download.
