Darel, I do not use a podcacher at this time because I don't find the time to do podcatching anymore ever since the headphone jack on my pk stopped working and I can't really take them on the road too much anymore to listen to privately. but I am intertaining the thought of trying it on the mac that is why I asked. and I'm just curiously but who gave you the odd idea of the vo not having an osm? do you think freedomscientific came up with that? sorry to tell you but even outspoekn had an osm back in 93 On Jan 19, 2006, at 6:58 AM, Darrell Shandrow wrote:

Hi Gabe,

As I understand it, there is no such thing as an off screen model
with VoiceOver.  Applications must have been written in Coco or
they simply won't work.  There is no "works partway" condition with
VoiceOver.  Is this correct?  What do you use on the Mac as a

understandable noted. but, does not jaws and window eyes require
the same, you know, standard windows controls, msaa, etc. its no
difference, so we on the mac prefer our apps to be written in
cocoa.  I don't iknow why windows users say that like we're not
really using  a top notch screen reader when the reason why most
blind can't use  the skype for windows app successfully is because
it doesn't have too  mmany standard controls. same thing for us on
a mac, but! our skype  works perfectly.
Don't misunderstand this post, I am just hoping that for any
reason  if voice over doesn't work on ipodder, that maybe, they
would make it accessible for us on the mac as they did for jaws

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

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.
