Hi thanks, I found http://www.icanworkthisthing.com and made adjustments suggested in the site's voiceover documentation. Safari speaks really well now as a result.On Sat, 7 Jul 2007, John Panarese wrote:Lol. I had no idea this list was still active. I was under the impression the former list owner had shut it down months ago.My guess is a combination of Safari settings are not set. VO will not automatically read the entire web page, as a Windows screen reader can be configured to do. If you cannot navigate with VO keys on the page, you have to make some adjustments in Safari preferences to enable tab browsing and to have links highlighted with the tab key. Let me know if this isn't clear.Take Care John D.

I managed to get the mac to update software and after that happens I run disk utility and repair disk permissions. The safari browser is another problem, I can use command-l to open a new location and type in the new location to open and when I moe around the screen safari tells me it has opened up the new location but will not speak any of its contents with voiceover. A sighted friend was able to go out to different sites and see them but safari didn't speak their contents when he did that either.
