David,

For the record, I don't know Mark at all, so I'm just looking in as an outside observer. I want to respond to the following that you sent.

I don't see how you can compare them and say they are the same. He takes liberties with the wording. especially when it comes to describing that third party apps are not accessible. this is true as far as it goes but even though there is an sdk, we have yet to see apps for the g3s appear and apple does say that they are working with developpers and this was completely overlooked and from reading the info, it looked like third party apps were not going to be accessible at al.

Mark's document says the following, pasted directly from it:

With the exception of VoiceOver, these accessibility features work with all iPhone applications, including third-party applications you download from the App Store. VoiceOver works with all applications that come preinstalled on iPhone. In addition, third-party developers can use the iPhone Accessibility API to make their applications accessible for VoiceOver users.

So what are you talking about?
