Weekend Roundup: OS X Things To Be Reading
I've read a lot of useful articles recently and I thought I'd share some of these with you. They're not all directly related to assistive and adaptive technology but they are all things I think that all Mac users should take a look at. This weekend I'll share ones related to OS X, and next week the iPod/iPhone ones I've collected:
There's a new blog worth watching - Minimal Mac - by Patrick R Hone. He's writing about a "clean, uncluttered, distraction free computing experience". Many posts are relevant to those with neurological and attention span problems such as users with ADD.
Deafmac writes about Recording iChat Audio and Video Chats with OS X Leopard.
MacTipper have compiled a Complete List of Default Multitouch Gestures for MacBook users. This list includes only programs that come with your Mac, so check the documentation for any third-party programs you use; or just try out the Multitouch Gestures and see if they do anything.
The MacTricks&Tips blog is writing a series entitled MacTricks&Tips 30 Day Guide - From Noob2Pro. It's not yet finished, but looks like it will be interesting and potentially useful for those who are new and not so new to using OS X. Their week 3 tips round-up contains a list of all the tips they'd published to the end of the third week, or for a more up to date list you can check up the Noob2Pro Category Listing which will show you all the tips posted to date, although unfortunately in reverse order.
Tim O'Brien has compiled A Collection of Firefox Accessibility Add-ons focussed on those with low vision.
That's all for this week! What have you been reading about recently? What would you like to read about? Leave a comment and let me know.
