I agree Ian. I can work with Pages and Numbers without difficulty.

As others have now said, VO is pre-installed on MacBooks as it is on all
other Apple products. I moved to Mac in 2011 so not sure how up-to-date I am
on how it works out of the box but I think you may be offered the opportunity
of both going through a quick start VO tutorial and also of turning VO off.
Decisions you then have to make include whether you’re going to do as I did
and just run with the native Mac OS and apps or whether you’re going to put
something like MS Office on the mac. Personally I’ve always regarded that as
rather counter productive not least because office is said not to work
particularly happily in the Mac environment. You also have to decide whether
you’re going to keep a PC running while you learn the Mac. I made the
decision to go cold turkey and quite soon found the Mac to be more intuitive
and less hassle. The other thing to say is to make use of good resources
such as Podcasts like the basic ones provided by David Woodbridge at Vision
Australia which were invaluable to me and the slightly less entry level ones
done last year by David Griffiths. Also use the Mac experience which exists
on lists like this and never think that any question is thick.
