Lesson 17. VoiceOver (and more) for Users with Challenges

GoalsProvide an overview of the VoiceOver process for people who might need to help users with visual impairments.
Teach all users how to take advantage of the myriad of features designed to make things easier for people with visual, audio, or mobile challenges.


Apple calls VoiceOver a “spoken user interface.” But the “spoken” interface in this case is not the user who is speaking—a voice inside the computer tells the user exactly what is displayed on the screen, which menus are available, where the cursor is and what it's pointing to, etc. A user with visual impairment can do just about anything on the Mac using VoiceOver—write, send, and read email; surf the web, use TextEdit for word processing, and more. And it's built-in to Tiger. By comparison, the most popular “screen reader” on a Windows machine costs about $1,000!
