Yesterday at CSUN, Apple announced (where? in a meeting, a press
release, a paper presentation?) the upcoming Spoken Interface for OS


This will in fact be the long-rumoured Apple screen reader *and
more*, we are told.

Press coverage from yesterday:


Now, Apple is actively looking for beta-testers for this "technology
preview." If you know someone who's blind or visually-impaired (or
isn't) and is a Mac user (or isn't), pass the following URL along:


If you fill out the questionnaire and answer yes to the last

I have friends at Apple, but beyond that I don't have any formal
involvement with the project.
