I'm not sure if anyone has responded to you yet. There are two main
problems with iTunes and accessibility - the application and the
media. The iTunes application on Windows is fairly inaccessible,
especially for screen reader users. The Mac version is getting more
accessible with Apple's VoiceOver.
The media is also inaccessible for many types of disabilities because
neither the audio nor video files are captioned within iTunes. You
can upload a QuickTime movie with a caption track to iTunes and it
will play back just fine within iTunes and QuickTime, but it won't
transfer to an iPod.
Hope this helps.
