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.

Sighted people can go into any high street store and check out products for free. So if you are visually impaired you have to pay £45 or £50 to try out comercially available products, and with a representative from the company concerned present? Access to products and services legislation, am i misunderstanding something?

Taste the Apples, 6th January 2011, London.
The British Computer Association of the Blind and The Royal National
Institute of Blind People invite you to an EyeT4All day showing the
powerful, easy to use, and free access features of the Apple range of
products.
Get your hands on an iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, iMac, and MacBook. The great thing about Apple access is that it is built-in and provided as standard at
no extra cost.
The day presents the full range of access features for blind and partially
sighted people. One stream will be trying out the speech features of
Voiceover. The other stream will focus more on magnification. You can choose which stream to join but some sessions will be together. Separate rooms are
available for a limited number of short personal hands on sessions but
please let us know your wishes well in advance.
The presenters include an Apple associate, experienced users and BCAB
certified trainers.
The July event was sold out quickly, so please book soon.
Location: RNIB headquarters, 105 Judd Street, London WC1H 9NE.
Cost: £50 (£45 reduced rate for BCAB members) including tea/coffee and
buffet lunch.
Time: 9:40 to 16:30.
Bookings: through the BCAB website: www.bcab.org.uk
All reservations and payments are taken online. If this is a problem please
contact Mike.
