macOS & Mac Apps
hi. i've just switched from using windows to mac. i'm totally blind and rely on the voice over. do you have any tips? and also could you recommend some good games that i can use? thanks
Hi. As for games, you'd enjoy change reaction, and also silver Dollar both by draconess entertainment. They have apps in this directory with links, as wel as a podcast done by a wonderful guy named David Woodbridge. Both of these are self voicing game,s you will need to turn off voice over with command, or what would've been your alt key, and the f five key. There's a lot to the Mac that I find you need to do with someone helping you via skype or something. if only so that you can understand hwo to set things a certain way. if you'd like more help, please let me know and i'd be happy to do what I can tohelp you out. Enjoy the Mac. :)
Hi, The VoiceOver Quick Start tutorial accessed by Control+Option+h, (the VoiceOver help menu) is a good place to start.
