The Mac OS has an accessibility API that is capable of supporting
assistive technologies - it just happens that Apple made their own, but
an outside company could develop a screen reader or other AT for that
greg, am I to understand then that your #2 excludes the Mac which has
its ownn AT?

be accessible to assistive technologies to allow matching of user
abilities necessary to achieve high levels of productivity.
