[macvoiceover] Re: Table Navigation

I don't know about that. We have screenreaders to contend with and things that may distort our perceptions. For example, people make the mistake of saying Sarfari is a faster browser they have used when what they really should say is when using Voiceover they hear the spoken information using Safari faster than a browser using say a Windows Screenreader. I've heard for example that firefox is fast, but if I compare the Windows version using a Windows based screen reader and Safari with VO I might say that Safari was faster because I heard the page information from that combination spoken first. This is unfair, however. What people are really hearing is the slowness of the MSAA that windows screenreaders use. Sometimes the web page has been loaded, but because we don't hear it we don't think it's there.

Hi Jacob. Safari is faster than anything else I use. when I click a link in safari, even the largest pages load faster in it than anywhere else.

Well, not sure I'd say that. Page loading times when interacting with VO isn't as fast as it probably should be. Fortunately, as can be seen when using the latest webkit builds, they are working on that situation, and on the other hand at least you know it won't have to load more of the page into memory at a later point.

on the other hand, I find that with the ommand-vo-nav functions, the vo-u to list links and the ability to use the web without a "forms" mode is great. I find safari to be the fastest browser I have ever used.
