Subject: [bvipilots] some newbie questions

Hi, everyone.
I guess I should start off by introducing myself. My name is Tyler. I'm a
blind guy in Canada who heard of flight simulator and itsyourplane working
together to enable a visually impaired person to fly, so I thought I'd give
it a shot.
I took the plunge and bought flight simulator x, but first a few questions.
Does the gold edition come with service pack 1?
Do I need to buy the accellerator pack with the gold edition as well or does
it come with it?

Now in terms of itsyourplane and flight simulator, how is it with a screen
reader? Particularely jaws for windows and NVDA?
What are the system requirements of itsyourplane? For some reason I can't
find them on the website.
And finally the most important question - where do I get started? I'm
completely new at this, and the manual seems to indicate that you should
have a basic knolidge - but what if I don't?
I'm debating what to instal this on, I'm not sure how much space it will
take up. For giggles, I want to try installing it on my asus transformer
book t100, but is it more than 10 or so gb in size?
I'm sorry for all the questions that I can probably find if I looked hard
enough; I'm probably looking in the wrong place.
If anyone thinks it would be more effective in answering me via other
communications like skype, i'll include my contact details below. I'm
extremeley excited to try this out and get as close as I can to flying other
than grabbing hold of a joystick and sitting in a real cockpit.

For anyone interested, my main system is a custom built machine with an AMD
fx8350 and a Radion 6450 graphics card and 16 gb of ram - will the Graphics
card be enough to handle this? Or does that matter with me being blind?

Thanks for any and all help. Contact details below.

email for i messages as well.
