My point exactly! I do believe wholeheartedly that all blind people should
have a choice in whatever operating system they choose to use, be it mac,
linux or Windows.
My original point is that I have the most experience in Windows, so naturally that is what I'm going to use. I may look at a mac in the future, but right now, Windows works fine for me.
I really hope this clears that whole issue up.

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. On Jan 19, 2006, at 6:08 PM, Chris Skarstad wrote:
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.

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: http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/index.php
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. Best, Jennifer
