Hi Gabe,

Oh, yes, definitely I am aware of the outSpoken OSM. I am glad to learn that VoiceOver can use one too. So does that mean applications do not necessarily have to be written in Coco? I am aware that Apple's own iTunes product is even more inaccessible on the Mac right now than it is on Windows.

I do not use a podcacher at this time because I don't find the time to do podcatching anymore ever since the headphone jack on my pk stopped working and I can't really take them on the road too much anymore to listen to privately. but I am intertaining the thought of trying it on the mac that is why I asked. and I'm just curiously but who gave you the odd idea of the vo not having an osm? do you think freedomscientific came up with that? sorry to tell you but even outspoekn had an osm back in 93

Hi Gabe,

As I understand it, there is no such thing as an off screen model with VoiceOver. Applications must have been written in Coco or they simply won't work. There is no "works partway" condition with VoiceOver. Is this correct? What do you use on the Mac as a Podcatcher?

understandable noted. but, does not jaws and window eyes require the same, you know, standard windows controls, msaa, etc. its no difference, so we on the mac prefer our apps to be written in cocoa. I don't iknow why windows users say that like we're not really using a top notch screen reader when the reason why most blind can't use the skype for windows app successfully is because it doesn't have too mmany standard controls. same thing for us on a mac, but! our skype works perfectly.
Don't misunderstand this post, I am just hoping that for any reason if voice over doesn't work on ipodder, that maybe, they would make it accessible for us on the mac as they did for jaws users?

I've changed the subject line since this question wasn't relevant to my last message, at all.

As I understand it, the Juice Receiver can be used on both Linux and the Mac. It's entirely cross-platform.

If you get it to work with Voice Over, I'd love to hear that since, as far as I can tell, VO's ability to work depends on how programs are developed. But I don't want to turn this list into a discussion of Mac and VO since there are plenty of other places to do that.

Go look for what you want to try by going directly to sourceforge  at:

I found this by using Google and searching on keywords:
"ipodder for the Mac." It was right there on the first page. Don't forget that Google's your friend.
