In iTunes, how do I rewind an audiobook a few seconds back ?

I missed a few words and wanted to rewind just a sentence or two.

The left arrow keys < play > do not do it, and I also tried alt + <

I have searched but not found anything helpful. Off to google some more..:p

Any advice much appreciated.

Do you have an Aluminium Apple keyboard or a recent MacBook (Pro)?

Hi Eidorian!

No, I am a bad boy.... I use Windozzzze,,,

I know I can listen on my Touch but sometimes I like to use the PC.

No takers on this one?

Maybe it is not possible on iTunes on the PC.

I am trying to find a navigation slider bar but can't find one !

This thread (http://lifehacker.com/software/featured-windows-download/control-itunes-using-keyboard-shortcuts-with-itunes-hotkey-263925.php) has a lot of suggestions about keyboard shortcuts for iTunes, mostly using helper applications.

On a Mac when you press and hold the "advance to the next song" key, it fast forwards 6 seconds at a time, and the "go back to the previous song" key goes back 6 seconds at a time. Windows doesn't do that?

thanks wordmunger!

I will have a good search there.

Windows doesn't seem to do that. I will try again and see !

Thanks again!
