[access-uk] Re: Apple VS Windows

Well Ray, the whole thing of accessing DTP programs like Quark and Page Maker has always fascinated me, and that's what endears me so much to the Mac. I would be interested in it for all the things I can't do now, not how better it could be to Windows or enhancing what I know already. I had everyone completely tearing their hair out at college because I pushed and pushed to try to understand what things looked like that I wanted to do. And that's why I hit it off with a guy from the Graphics department, because he could lock into my mind and re-produce for me what I wanted to turn out. I must have driven them mad with my obsession to produce every detail on the newspaper front page I was working on.


Next year, I may well return to the Mac to see where it's at with speech. It's a very interesting thread that I like to follow.

Hmmm!  Quark!  Well Jackie, and maybe I'm being controversial when I
say that I do wonder if Quark is for the likes of us!  (Tongue in
sheek)

My problem with vi peopleseeking access to desktop layout problems is
that these cannot really be equated to word processing, which I think
is what many vi people think of Quark, Publisher (dare I mention it in
the same breath) and th the likes. Yes, ok , you have words laid out
and formatted, but often in ways that go way beyond what anyone would
do with Word or whatever.  Still, maybe some effort could be made to
give more or any access at all, to the text elements of layout pages.
But then, some would say it's enough to save as a word or maybe RTF
document.  That wouldn't I think address the element of working
interactively with those who spend their lives in DTP.

More interesting to me is, will Apple and the writers of such audio
programs such as Logic and Pro Tools,make them workable with Voice
Over?  Now, that for me really would be a step forward.

Cheers,

Ah but I wonder Ray how it would cope with media stuff like Quark.
That's
where I'd really love to get in about complex software to do real page
layouts.  Blimey I might even have an appetite to go back to my
journalism
and do the BA Honours if I could get my bloody back sorted out
(smile).  If
only it had been four years ago ... that would have been truly
sensational
for me!!
