I just got a new MacBook Air for Christmas and I love it. However, it is a bit of steep learning curve from using JAWS with Windows. I just purchased Twitterific to be able to use Twitter. I previously used The Qube with Windows. I have a question about setting up Twitterific. When I start the program, a blank wind pops up with the phrase authenticate with Twitter. The only button I can click is Close. Does anyone know how to authenticate Twitter with Twitterific. It's probably something simple for people more proficient with the Mac than me. Thanks.

Hi Wayne, Unfortunately, Twitterrific for Mac is not accessible. The developers are working on a redesign of the app, and they plan to make it fully accessible. So, I would either hold out for the redesign or contact Apple Accessibility for a refund. YoruFukurou is the Mac Twitter client of choice when it comes to accessible Twitter clients. It is available in the Mac App Store for free.

Well I just got word via the twitter verse that twitterific are not going to focus on the mac app at all as their focus is on the iOS app. We'll see if this holds true. Sad really.
