An Overview of an Accessible Leopard by Jim Denham

The latest version of the Macintosh operating system, OS X 10.5,
includes some incredible accessibility features. For users who are
blind, the built-in VoiceOver screen review software offers a whole
new way to use the Mac. This powerful tool offers features such as
refreshable Braille support, an extensive help system and reliable
access to many popular Macintosh applications.

For the past several years, all Macintosh computers have shipped with
an Intel based processor. This hardware platform allows the machine to
run non-Apple operating systems, including Microsoft Windows. Apple
even provides a utility, called Bootcamp, that allows the user to
easily switch between operating systems. This dual operating system
environment is a great solution for individuals who want to use both
Mac and Windows on the same machine.

The Tek Talk session to be held on 6 April will introduce users to
the powerful screen review software included with all versions of
Macintosh Leopard. The powerful Navigation and help features of
VoiceOver and the Mac will be demonstrated. The session will also
include information for sighted trainers who need to provide
instruction to persons who are blind on the Mac. Finally, the ability
to easily and efficiently switch between the Mac and Windows operating
systems will be shown.

Date: Monday, April 6th, 2009.
