Quite right. You can add apps to the Docs list if you wish; you can also add
apps to the Desktop if you wish. It will take time for you to learn the ways of
the Mac Trace.

Control option d gives you access to the applications on what Mac calls the

As Ed says, Macs are very accessible out of the box. There will be some
learning curve, but there is plenty of learning material on the
Applevis.com <http://applevis.com/> website. That’s how I learned; I paid
for a year’s one-to-one but I didn’t need to use it. I now use both PC and
Macbook without much difficulty at all.

Yes, Voiceover comes as standard and it'll talk right out of the box.
The Macbook Air and Macbook Pro both have USB. The Macbook might too

You could use iTunes Natch. This would give access to your iTunes
