Hello all. I just joined this comm and hope somebody sees this. First a bit of background, and then my question. I am a relatively new Mac user, and I use Apple's on-board screen reader VoiceOver. I've had my MacBook for a year and a half, and love it. But what I don't love is that I cannot access much in-person training for it. The only in-person training that is available around here is at one or more of the store locations, at least from what I've been told. However, I am unable to get there independently due to limited travel skills. I would be happy to take paratransit to one or more of these training sessions, but due to a serious budget crisis the ADA paratransit service here has become rather limited. The people with whom I work and live have busy schedules, and aren't always available to take me places. Therefore, I have been avoiding making an appointment to go in for more training, out of fear that nobody will be available to take me. For the most part this hasn't presented too big a problem, since VoiceOver is so fully integrated into Apple's products these days. I have previously had a lot of computer experience in Windows and DOS, so I think a lot of this Mac stuff has just come naturally to me. My mom and I attended a training session at our local Apple store just after I got this computer, and the session went very well. We were well-prepared ahead of time, and the trainer did a wonderful job.

Having said all that here is my question. Is there anywhere online I can look for an easy-to-understand guide about iTunes that is up-to-date? I've checked Apple's website and although everything is very accessible, they don't seem to offer much in the way of what I'm seeking. AppleVis is another very good resource, but they currently don't offer an updated guide either. Furthermore, whenever I try to post a question a lot of the time I'll get back replies with multiple spelling and/or grammar errors which make it rather difficult to follow what the person is trying to say. iTunes seems to be great in terms of accessibility for the most part, but there's a lot to it and some of the interface is a bit confusing to me. I'm running iTunes 12.2 on a mid-2013 MacBook Air with OS X version 10.10.3 .

Do you mind a private message? (or email?)

I have some ideas that might help, but they'd require sharing more about where I work in an identifiable way than I do in public posts.

Hey - tried to reply to your PM, but you have things set so I can't send you a PM. If you're okay sending me a PM with your email, I can send what I have written up.

(I'm wary of putting plain text emails out in the open: I already get enough spam.)

Still having problems - still get the error on trying to send you a private message (that you haven't granted permission) and trying the email, I get an message undeliverable.

Anyway. I do have some more resources that might help you, but I really can't explain why on the easily searchable internet. (Jenett is the account I use for personal stuff including chronic health stuff and religious stuff and I avoid details that'd make it obvious where I work.)

In general terms, though, can you explain more about the actual problem you're having here? You mentioned something about running low on space in your PM, but I'm not clear exactly what's going on for you, and it's hard to figure out a solution without more details.
