Hi All.

I'm sure this has been spoken about so many times but I've not been
interested before.

One of the guys at work has been talking about his mac and I'm pretty

I'm thinking about one for home and I'm wondering about accessibility.
I know there's Voice Over which is the built in screen reader. How good
is this, how does it compare to the plethora of windows screen readers.

Mostly I'd want to do email, office type applications, read books which
are plain text or html, brows the web, maybe a bit of IM.

I'd also want to develop PHP on it and some C++. what are the
development environments like, how accessible are they?

Any information gratefully received.
