Memoirs of a Blind Switcher
This is a great article about John Panarese's experiences switching from Windows to OS X as a blind user.
As blind users investigate or actually make the switch from Windows to the Mac, there has been a lot of discussion about the aspects of this change on the blind Mac users email lists. This is, in no way, an attempt at a tutorial or any kind of technical document. Reading about the common problems and difficulties and, of course, successes encountered by new Mac users has prompted me to think about my own personal experiences involved in learning VoiceOver and the Mac. Below are some of my reflections on this subject, which I hope might help or assist, or, at the very least, give encouragement to current or future switchers.
