Hi,

I am visually impaired and cannot easily use the remote for controlling my Squeezebox.

Fortunately, the Slim Server software is readily accessible with my PC screen reader and I can perform most functions from the PC.

One thing I have not been able to figure out how to do from Slim Server is to add an Internet Radio station to my Favorites. Is this possible from the PC?

Thanks.

Hi Pete

Did only see this posting now in the devs forum. I'm answering here
because it's not really a development question.

Unfortunately the Favorites plugin in it's current (6.5.x) implementation
doesn't allow adding favorites through the web interface. Your best bet
might be using the MyPicks plugin, by which the future Favorites plugin
(SlimServer 7) will be inspired. It's available from the wiki:

Documentation: http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?WikiRadio
MyPicks plugin:
http://wiki.slimdevices.com/plugin/attachments/WikiRadio/MyPicks-0.6-6.5.zip

The plugin will then be available from the plugin's section in the
slimserver we interface.

May I ask you which skin you are using? Does your screenread interpret
what is displayed on screen, or is it "reading" the html code, too?

I'm asking this as more and more of the skin's code is being created on
the client side (using javascript). I'd be interested to know whether this
makes working with a screenreader harder. (Now... that part would have
been appropriate for the developers forum :-))
