I have been working in the Windows environment for the past 20 years. For the past 10 years I have used several models of the iPhone and love the Apple interface. I am an accessibility tester and there is another blind person on my team who prefers the mac over Windows. I've also noticed that more and more blind people who do podcasting use the mac.
I'm wondering what advantages it has over windows? I currently own a Dell laptop which I like and use Windows for Microsoft Office and accessibility testing. For a screenreader and Braille user, what advantages does the mac offer that Windows doesn't? I know mac computers are more expensive but there must be a reason more and more blind people are switching to the mac. What are people doing with the mac that they don't like or can't do with Windows. I would be interested in other peoples' thoughts.
