Sally, 
I would talk to our Access Technology Team in the International Braille
and Technology Center about the use of a Mac book. They are very
familiar with the Apple products, and they will be able to tell you how
the Mac software works with the internet and other common applications.
Call (410) 659-9314, and choose option 5 from the main menu. 

Warmest Regards, 

Treva

Subject: [blindkid] MacBook Pro

Do any blind kids you know use a MacBook for school work?  My son has an
iPod Touch which he loves.  He is even able to type and send email from
it despite the touch screen.  This has convinced him that a MacBook is
the best computer for him.  I'm wondering about the limitations of the
built in screen reader or any other idiosyncrasies that would limit its
use.  Since it doesn't require the purchase of JAWS or other screen
reading software, it might be a good choice.
