Interest in the Mac from the blind community has increased, particularly since iPhone was made accessible. And blind or not, many have had their interest in the Mac peaked or rekindled as a result of the remarkable technological prowess of the new Macs that sport the M1 chip. Operating systems change over time, so Janet Ingber has updated her popular book on Mac Basics. It’s published by National Braille Press.
I spoke with Janet about her book and the Mac in general. We were in Clubhouse, so we also got some great contributions from the Mosen At Large community discussing the pros and cons of the Mac in conjunction with VoiceOver, its built-in screen reader.
