Accessibility Comments: 

Obviously, there are some accessibility issues still that need to be addressed, no question, but I'd say 85 to 90 percent of the app is completely usable. The documentation and manual is in pdf format right on the dvd, so it's very very easy to read and access. I'd strongly strongly suggest you do so before immediately assuming things dont' work the way you think they should. Also, there's a mailing list you may want to join at:

Right now, the mix window, and the edit window work perfectly. The midi event viewer still isn't very accessible, but I know beyond a doubt, give it time, and Avid should make it such. Here's hoping!

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments: 

When I say this app is usable, but has some issues that are easy if you're willing to tollerate them, please please please! don't! let that scare you, nor discourage you from diving in to the app as your main D A W for your career. I promise you, for the most part, it works well enough to be used in a professional career environment.
