[macvoiceover] Re: MAC 6.4 is not up to my expectations.

And for what it's worth, I received an email from accessibility today. Just 
receiving timely responses is more than I often got with freedom Scientific, 
but the content of the response was also very welcome. They assured me that 
they were aware of the problems and that their engineers were looking into 
them, and beyond that, they encouraged me to write them again if I encountered 
other bugs. Frustrating as these glitches are, at least I'm confident they're 
listening to us.

Though, you know, I make no promises that I'll still be feeling this way 
tomorrow, if the reported bug about not being able to access the keyboard with 
VO on the new iPhone turns out to be as big a deal as it sounds. I doubt I will 
be quite so sanguine. :)
