Strongly considering taking the leap
Hello everyone. I'll start off by saying this is my first post here. To quickly introduce myself I am in my late 20's Am completely blind except for a very small amount of light perseption, have used computers and other forms of technology for the majority of my life, and I am a rather adept computer user. I currently use windows with jaws as my screen reader. I also have an iPhone which I constantly use and love.
Unless I decide to switch Opperating systems I am about to have to pay the blind tax again. Yes that wonderful price of upgrading Jaws, Openbook, etc. I have been reading a lot about the Mac and voiceover and am strongly considering in investing in one.
I do however have a few questions. I had no problem addapting to voiceover on the iPhone 2 years ago after using windows mobile phones with third party screen readers for several years. I realize this question is jenerick but in the experience of those of you who have switched will I have any more trouble switching to a Mac from windows? I have played with one in a store a couple of times but it is hard to get a good feel for it in that lowd hectic environment. For those of you who have switched to a Mac from a PC is there anything that you miss or can't live without that isn't included? I have read the voiceover manual and it seems rather simple yet it seems to be very thorough.
Thank you in advance for your responses.
