Terrific Site! I especially liked the Q & A found at the bottom of the screen about Apple products. It never occured to me that the ipod is essentially useless for the blind. I have, however, noticed that most voice recognition software is available only for PC. They mentioned that this may change in the near future - for the sake of accessability I truly hope so. Education and Apple go hand in hand, so it would behoove them to serve this part of the student population. There is some software available for Apple users: Even still, other providers should make an Apple compatible version when releasing their products.
