Since I'm blind, Play is a little hard for me to fully access, as the knobs don't have text underneath them. My Screenreader, JAWS (Job Access With Speech) 10.0.1178U, can't recognize buttons with icons that are image-based. These buttons and controls have to have text icons so that they can be easily read by JAWS. Is there a possibility that this can be implemented into Play 4? Here is a list of controls that are recognized by JAWS. Note that these controls have to have text-based icons that go with them, since JAWS does not read and recognize icons with bitmap images. More information about JAWS is available at: http://www.freedomscientific.com/jaws-hq.asp
