[macvoiceover] Re: microsoft office and voiceover

well, i just had to comment on this.  what on earth is the point of having an 
accessibility devision if they are not going to try to make their programmes 
accessible?  that must be microsoft logic for you.  it's almost like they are 
saying if you are blind and don't use windows tough luck. :( 
speaking of word processors has anyone tried nises writer pro? excuse spelling. 
is it accessible? what about pages? how does it stack up?

thanks
