iTunes for Windows accessibility

I am really struggling with the new iTunes for Windows. Particularly creating playlists and transferring them to my iPad. I feel that a multi-gazillion dollar company like Apple should be doing a little better with accessibility, because we know it is possible.

Creating playlists are confusing to say the least. Even transferring songs/audio is a hard task to achieve.

iTunes Access on Windows

I am no Apple apologist. However, iTunes is currently about as accessible as it has ever been. Which is to say, it has been much worse in the past. Apple doesn't adhere to Windows programming conventions, and often seems to make user interface and other design changes that either breaks, or makes accessibility much more difficult with each new version. Eventually, things get refined, and access improves, just in time to start the cycle again.

In the current version, using JAWS 2018 on Windows 10, I am able to manage my media, make playlists, and sync content to my phone, iPad, and various iPods. Perhaps it is with the reflection of past major hurdles that I see this current version favourably. It could be, and has been, much worse.

And now that I have said that, cue Apple's release of an all new iTunes that i will hate and struggle to use.

There are many tutorials and many tidbits of information scattered around the internet, but, it is important to ensure that the info is relevant to the current version. Things can change quickly and dramatically.

Thanks

Yes, what you say makes a lot of sense. I am running Windows 10 with JAWS 17 (upgrading soon to 18). Maybe the upgrade of JAWS will help.
But it makes a kind of sense that Apple doesn't put the same sort of effort into making its Windows applications accessible as it does Apple devices. I specifically have a problem where I can't cut and paste files to the iTunes sidebar in iTunes 12 - mostly because there is no real sidebar it seems to me. Its hit and miss but I can add files one by one (very tedious) - but also getting to the place where I can do that takes lots of tabbing and dare I say praying! (Sorry I am being flippant!)
Thanks for the comments, its good to know I am not the only one struggling with this.
