Barry,

Just fired it up with exactly the same configuration and it worked fine.
Worth pointing out that in NVDA, the link stays on the same line, i.e. it
speaks, no thanks continue to use link mp3 downloader.

Hi David,

I can't get this to work and I've tired it several times today.  With FF &
IE latest version & the latest version of NVDA.  I get up to the point where
I should be presented with the no thanks link and just can't find it.  I've
tried mouse clicking, spacebar, return on the download link after following
the previous steps but keep getting the cloud player download install
options.  Can you try this please, perhaps I'm missing something?  I did get
it to work before but I don't know what I'm missing out, I'm following yoru
steps in the below mail to the letter.
Thanks,
Barry

Barry,

Here is a transcript of a message I sent on this subject a few weeks ago:


Mike,

I am doing this as I'm writing, having already done it once to prove it
worked.
Note that these instructions assume that you've downloaded and installed
Amazon MP3 downloader. These instructions may seem a little eccentric, but
they work for me:
1.Fire up Amazon.
2.In the combo box where it allows you to control your search, select MP3.
3.Search for an album, it doesn't matter what it is.
4.On the page that comes up, you'll find a link which says Amazon cloud
player, invoke this link.
5.Now you need to find a part of the page where it tells you how many songs
you have in the cloud, how much space you have, and all that malarkey. There
should be a link which says albums, underneath it will say how many albums
you have. Invoke the albums link.
6.You'll be presented with a table containing a list of all the albums
you've bought, this will include the album you bought yesterday. Next to the
name of the album, there will play link, and an option view link. Invoke the
option view link.
7.Now do control-end to get you to the bottom of the page, then arrow up
until you get to a download link. Invoke this link.
8.It is important at this stage that you do not accept the invitation to
download a faster all singing all dancing program, but select no thanks I'll
use mp3 downloader. Invoke this link.
9.It is possible that you'll get something on the information bar at this
point, so I type alt-N to read the bar. There should be buttons to open or
save. Activate the open button.
10. You'll now hear a load of disk activity, and if you alt tab you'll find
that mp3 downloader has opened, and is downloading the album.
Any further questions or problems, get back, and I'll try to help,

Hi,

Now I have the mp3 download installed how can I constantly bring this up
when I want to download passed purchased music?

I'm on the Amazon site, select the tracks I want but I don't' know how to
reliably get the option to download the tracks using the mp3 downloader not
the cloud player?  Is there links in a certain order I need to hit?

Thanks,
Barry.

Hi guys,

I've just bought an album but got trapped.  I can't' seem to find a .amz
file to download my purchase.  It keeps wanting me to install the cloud
player, which I did and it was horrible for accessibility and I uninstalled
it.  I've went into the cloud player through the browser, ticked the boxes
for the tracks in the album I want to download but clicking on download
(XX), XX being the track number isn't doing anything.

Can anyone help with suggestions of how I can get my album?

Thanks,
Barry.
