[macvoiceover] Re: VMWare Fusion Installation

Hi Dan
This is a good idea, as some unknowns can be interacted with. Those in VMWare Fusion, however, aren't that kind of unknown but as I said, it's easy enough to get the information anyway. I only keep VMWare on my Mac to keep up with things in both the Windows and Linux worlds, I just like to stay on top of the latest developments. I also use it to help people out if they're struggling to use a Windows program, since honestly I've gotten so used to OS X that if I don't fire up windows every now and then I often forget the little things and even when I do some things just feel awkward in it now--browsing the web in particular is just cumbersome for me using Windows now that I've gotten so used to groups mode. I don't boot it up for anything else, as everything I want to do I can do on OS X much easier.

Hi, I don't actually have fusion, as I don't intend on installing Windows ON my Mac, but whenever I come across an area that VoiceOver says is an unknown, I usually interact with it, because usually you can get at the content in that area if you interact.

Yes sorry I meant getting to the edit box, not the edit box itself. I couldn't get into the settings; they said "unknown" and I didn't know which setting they were. It's probably a matter of counting to find the right one but that's not acceptable for me when dealing with something like building my very own computers virtually of course. lol

The problem I have with fusion is that VO doesn't seem to be able to read a lot of the settings for changing your virtual hardware.

Not so. In both version 1.X and 2.X, hardware changes were completely accessible. You can, for instance, change the RAM by typing the amount into the edit field. You could interact with the slider, too, if you like, but it's easier to type into the edit field. Getting to the right bit of hardware even works (but I can't remember how it's laid out just at the moment).

*My* particular issue with Fusion is that version 2.0 is a *lot* slower than version 1.X was. I mean, the VM takes for-bloody-ever to start up. I'm sure upping this MacBook from 1 GB to 2 will help, but still. It really is considerably slower on my system.
