[macvoiceover] Re: Installing Leopard using VO

Cheryl and everyone else who has replied to my post,

That helps a lot! I thought that was the case, as I recall seeing this mentioned on the list in the past, but just wanted to make sure, as I've never installed OS X myself - have always had my sighted roommate do it.

As to OS X needing a serial number, etc, the answer would be no, it doesn't require the "serial number from h*ll)! <grin>

The website I was referring to, was Apple's own site, on the page which listed Leopard's features, I believe, right around the time it was released. As I recall, one of the "selling points", in the accessibility section, was that the blind could install the OS, independently with the aid of a Braille display. There was no mention of being able to install with the aid of speech, so I thought perhaps Apple was still working on making that possible. Guess I stand corrected. <grin>

        If I have any difficulties, I'll be sure to post to the list.

Thanks!

Ron

You can install Leopard either by starting the computer while holding down the C key with the dvd in place or by putting the dvd in, opening the installer, etc. as you described above. There's absolutely no problem installing with vo using speech; with a laptop you might have to use command-FNkey-f5 but those with laptops will be able to tell you that for sure. If speech isn't loud enough, do cmd-option-ctrl-right arrow I think twice to volume, and then do ctrl-option-up arrow repeatedly until it stops getting louder or you hear a ping sound, even if the volume already says 100 percent. The install is totally accessible. If you saw a website that only explained installing with braille, I'm assuming the ability to install with speech was just taken for granted, but then I know one should never assume anything--*grin*!!!

Hth.
