    Music scan status?

    I’m using PerfectTunes on a Mac. I’m blind so I use the DBPA and PT suites with Apple Voice Over screen reader.

    I have a newly updated music library on an external USB drive. The library has approx. 140,000 tracks.

    Is there a visual indication that the Music Scan is underway and progressing? I can hear drive activity on the external USB drive but I’d like to know if there’s a visual indication the scan is progressing before I ask a sighted person to check my monitor to see whether there is any visual information present.

    Thanks.

      Perhaps my problem is that I don&*8217;t know how the music scan is initiated. I was able to remove the default music location (the Music sub folder provided by OSX) and add the folder on the mounted USB drive. Once that&*8217;s done, does the scan start automatically, or must I start it? I couldn&*8217;t find a labeled button using Voice Over to start the scan.

      Thanks.

        If you start one of the programs yes it will begin the scan.

          Good to know, I believe I started &*8220;cover Art&*8221; and the scan began. I am able to move through and read the status window now that the scan has begun.

          Thank you.
