[macvoiceover] Re: Hello new list members!

Wow even hot chocolate, thanks so much! lol
Wow, it even has whipped cream on it...mmmmm
Seriously I can't wait to get my hands on a mac. I don't know when I'll have the money to buy one as I just bought a laptop and have to wait before I can buy more toys oops I mean necessary equipment for entertainment oops I mean serious university-related equipment. lol
Yeah, I'm one of those nut cases. big smile and lol
I have far too many computers. My mother is not happy that I am considering buying another one. I don't think she's ever seen a mac though, I hear they look cool too. She's sighted, so maybe the Mac will look good on my desk and convince her to like computers. One thing I already love without even having used a mac is that it will talk right away and I won't need sighted help to use it. With my other computers, I needed sighted help to get through the setup screens. What macs do you people have? iMacs? minis? pros? laptops? I can't decide on an iMac or a mac mini so that is why I am asking. I already have two laptops so I don't think I'll get a laptop lol.

Hi there. Thanks for the welcome!
Ok, here goes the intro.
My name is Sara and I live somewhere in Canada. I am 27 years old and I like to consider myself a computer geek but then I meet people who know a lot more than I do so I realize that I don't know that much. I joined this mailing list because I wanted to learn about macs. I saw a mac at the university bookstore and thought it was cool. It even gave me speech when I pressed command f5 which was the only command anything I knew. lol It talked, but nobody at the store knew how to use the screen-reader so I got frustrated and decided it didn't really work...but then I found this list and www.icanworkthisthing.com and realized that I had been pressing just about every key to get it to read except! the V O keys. lol My email address has "649" in it because when I found this list, I felt like I had won the lottery lol. I am going to a different store where I hope the sales people will be more knowledgeable. I am going to look at macs and try some more stuff now that I know some commands. I'll report tomorrow on how it goes. I think I'd better braille out some basic commands to try or I'll end up forgetting them all lol.
You people rock, thanks for being so patient with me, a total newbie.
