as I asked in the last message and I haven't reccieved a straight answer from you yet is, as you fight for what you say accessibility for all, will you put in an inquiry to possibly making jiuce accessible to use using the mac and voice over just as you want everyone on the band waggon on accessibility to windows users, or Does accessibility only count with jaws?

Hi Gabe,

I have really mixed feelings about the Mac at this time, but I remain open minded, especially until I see VoiceOver in action. The evidence at my disposal to date would suggest that accessibility and overall functionality for blind users is still significantly better on the Windows platform.

Are! You! Serious!!!??????
So, your saying righyt now that accessibility is only validly avaiable for windows users and that is fine? not the blind that choose to use anything else?
Wow, this is selffish If I ever heard of it. thats just so amazing, and sad for all of us as a blind community as a hole.

Hey, if people want alternatives, I believe the answer is most likely yes.
I have to be honest when I say that I have absolutely no interest in using a mac, since Windows and JAWS serve their purposes just fine for me. That doesn't necessarily mean I won't ever try a Mac, but for now, this works.

accessibility only a jaws thing?

Subject: The Juice Receiver is cross-platform


I've changed the subject line since this question wasn't relevant to
my last message, at all.

As I understand it, the Juice Receiver can be used on both Linux and
the Mac. It's entirely cross-platform.

If you get it to work with Voice Over, I'd love to hear that since,
as far as I can tell, VO's ability to work depends on how programs
are developed. But I don't want to turn this list into a discussion
of Mac and VO since there are plenty of other places to do that.

Go look for what you want to try by going directly to sourceforge at:

I found this by using Google and searching on keywords:
"ipodder for the Mac." It was right there on the first page. Don't
forget that Google's your friend.
