Hello Brian,

...and this is to say nothing of the opportunity to meet other blind and 
partially-sighted people who are using the equipment you want to know about. 
All the expertise from sighted sales reps in the shops can't hold a candle to 
the experiences of people who use the equipment for real, and in the same way 
that you do, or hope to do.

Regards,
Clive

Hi Brian.

Do you have an apple store near you?  If you do, kindly get your ass off your 
seat and go visit them, they'll gladly show you how to use voice over. 
Else, this is a paid event organized by technology experts in a conference 
venue with workshops and a buffet lunch, and you wont get the kind of hands on 
experience and specialist knowledge from an apple store without paying for it 
or cueing up at the genius bar.

All the best, Ibrahim.
