If you're going to use terminal, it may help to lock the vo keys on while using it.

Terminal is found in the utilities folder under applications. It is a text input output application that you can use for doing all sorts of interesting things. It is the text interface to the shell/unix command set. It is a bit awkward though because when you type a command, you need to use vo keys with arrows to review the output since it doesn't speak automatically.

you can always open up a terminal session and type time press enter, type date, press enter, or the reverse and tead the output, simpler though is
to
press control-f8 and left arrow to the clock.

Thanks eventually I will do this maybe by then it will be tested for
Leopard. I am new to the Mac, so I cant find my way around the finder yet.

Not by default, but you can create this behavior.
go to mac.com/windowbridge (or whatever the url is
members.mac.com/windowbridge maybe) and download the time date scripts I posted there. Then look at the vo programs list, download spark, install it, then assign the time, date, or both script to a keystroke. That'll do
it.
(and, I'm fairly certain spark works in leopard, though I've not tried it yet) at least I don't remember testing it, though it's possible I did
<sigh> I really need to write this stuff down.
