Yes, accessibility is certainly important of course, but the product has to work.
Unless you're not reading very carefully, you must have already read, several times, that Winamp still works very well for many people. So your asking about GW Connect is kind of missing the point.

Well you’re the lot making the big noise about how good accessibility is so I thought I’d ask.

What's the point of getting something that doesn't work, even if it is accessible? The whole point of the thread was that Winamp still works.

Can anyone tell me where I might get GW Connect? I don’t know whether it will work now but at least it’s accessible.

They can't. The guy was just mentioning another example of something that has been around a long time that is still useful. He was not saying that braille slates or braille writers were media players.

I was made aware of something today, I didn't know Braille slates could play media.

While I've not dealt with every type of media player that ever was, I don't see how one could get a whole lot better (as far as accessibility is concerned) than Winamp; just my opinion, you understand!

Dane,

Winamp is the most accessible media player for the blind. It may be old, but it is highly functional. I am listening to online radio with it as I type this message. Braille slates are more than 80 years old but they are still used because they are useful. I also own and use a minidisc recorder. It is somewhat ancient, but it remains highly effective for spoken word recording.

By Mayank Parmar - September 17, 2018 Winamp for Windows Remember
Winamp?
The popular media player for Windows is expected to make
a
comeback at some point. Winamp was launched by independent
developers back in 1997 and it grew quickly popular with over 3
million downloads in a
short
span of time. In a couple of years, Winamp became one of the most
downloaded Windows applications. The app was sold to AOL in 1999
for
$80
million but it later acquired by Radionomy in 2014. Radionomy, the
current developers of famous Winamp promised that the app will
receive a new update with several new features. A while ago, the
developers published release notes of an update but no downloadable
package was available for users to try out. Winamp developers
promised major updates ever since it took over the company and we
are
still
waiting for that day. It's an old and outdated app but it's still
being used by millions of
users.
A new version of Winamp, which was last developed on October 26,
2016, has leaked online. Winamp 5.8 has been published by an
unknown source and it's not from the official developers. It's also
worth noting that VirusTotal scan generates two different
warnings
for the app, so we are not including the link to unreleased Winamp
update
in
this article. Winamp works fine on Windows 10 The Winamp 5.8 comes
with several new features and improvements including support for
Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. It is, however, worth noting that
public and stable version of the app
works
smoothly on Windows 10, but Winamp 5.8 is supposed to address
compatibility
issues with Windows 10. As noted above, this release of Winamp
comes with several other improvements. For example, there's a
dedicated setting that lets you
disable
Winamp's video support and the company has also fixed some bugs to
improve the overall performance of the player. The current owner
hasn't officially announced any updates for the app but
as
the beta has just leaked out, there's a chance that an official
statement will be released soon. It's also possible that the
developers are
internally
testing a new and improved version of the app with better support
for Windows 10. At this point, it's not yet known whether a new
Winamp release is planned
or
not. We are waiting for additional details from the developers and
we will update this article if and when a statement is available.
********** Those of a positive and enquiring frame of mind will
leave the rest of the halfwits in this world behind.
