    I love apple because I am now able to use my computer and get it from a regular store just like everyone else. I'm totally blind and depend on a program that reads text on                          the screen. The text to speech program is called voice-over and is integrated on all macs, iPods, iPads, and iPhones. The screenreader is built-in to the operating system and is free because it’s included in the overall cost of the item. When i owned a PC provided by the school,  I used a screenreader called Job Access wit Speech or JAWS and is only built for the windows operating system. However, you have to pay about $900 for the software in addition to the cost of a laptop or desktop computer.

    When I had a PC and used jaws for doing my schoolwork and other leisure activities, it would sometimes freeze up and I had to restart the computer. If you don’t have the full version, you have to reboot the computer every 40 minutes which is a major inconvenience, especially if you have to take a long test or have a very important report to write. an upgrade can cost about $600 for the jaws program for windows, but for the mac, it is a small fraction of the price. With that said, I decided to use a mac for personal use. If i have to use a PC for work, that can now be accessible  using that same screen reader like Jaws or another free screen reader like NVDA.

    I'm glad you found something to meet your needs and that Apple provided that.  I hear some negative things about Apple but I love them also.  It seems they have thought of so many things.  I have an iPad and I am amazed at how much it does.  I bought it as an ereader! My 5 yo to shiva laptop then quit on me and I have found my iPad does everything I needed a PCM for.

     

    Even so, I am sure thinking seriously about getting a MacBook so I am perusing this section of the support forum.

    Well except for the darn auto correct feature. I should turn that off so I wouldn't have so many typos.

    Glad to hear you are enjoying your iPad

     

    Another nice thing about Apple is their great service. There are some great people at the Apple Store and helpers on these forums.

     

    I have a 10-year-old iMac that is just now starting to slowly die, 6-year-old MacBook and 2.5-year-old MacBook Pro and more, all running fine. If you get a Mac, I think you'll enjoy it.

    No, it's more likely that someone posted something that contravened the terms of use. That and the edit would have moved the thread to the top. You can tell that something was removed based on the "This thread was branched to a new discussion" at the top of the page. When the hosts remove something, it's first moved to a separate thread.

     

    Might be time for a new tinfoil hat. The old one apparently has holes in it.

    That's nice!  Most of us love Apple as well.

     

    But do you have a question for us?

    You do realize, don't you, that you're replying to a post that was made almost 18 months ago? In a thread that's been dormant for almost 6 months?

    The 'thread of love'  apparently has manifest from the aether.
