Hi,The first two features sound to me like they are JAWS and not windows features. The auto reading of the web page for sure. The first thing I do with Window-eyes is turn off the auto reading of the web page, Window-eyes only reads the first 24 lines. This is also the first thing I turned off with VoiceOver.

well, this is purely my opinion but 3 features that horribly remind me of windows are as follows.1. automatic reading of a webpage.2. voice over hints. I know what to do in a text area, especially when it already says edit text. 3. insertion point. this has been discussed, it's counter intuitive and doesn't teach the vi community how it would look to sighties.all I can say is I'm so glad these features are optional. they are just horrific and no one can tell me that it will help progression from windows to mac. I didn't have these features and I am so glad I did. mac is not windows, when will people realise this.overall vo rocks even more in this version, and I am grateful to apple for giving us a choice. really glad.Click on the link below to go to our homepage. http://www.icanworkthisthing.comManage your subscription by using the web interface on the link below.http://www.freelists.org/list/macvoiceover Users can subscribe to this list by sending email to macvoiceover-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxwith 'subscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Webinterface at http://www.freelists.org/list/macvoiceover
