Happy New Year everyone.
Anyway, I am eligible to apply for a new computer through ADP (Assistive Devices Program) and I was wondering about which computer I should get. Should I still get a windows computer? Or should I get a Mac? What can a Mac computer do that a windows computer can't? I've been using windows computers for 10 years. My first computer didn't have any problems, but my second computer did. Whenever my second computer stopped working I always had to get sighted assistance to help me figure out what the problem is. Now, I think I should get a Mac. On the Mac computer I could use garage band in order to make music and do audio recording. I can't do that on a windows computer. However, when my windows computer was working I used a program called Audacity which is also available on the Mac. I once listened to David Woodbridge's podcast about why he keeps using a Mac and he said that he could troubleshoot and reinstall the OS completely independently without any problems. On a Mac computer I can use an application called text edit in order to edit my word documents. I could do that on a windows computer with Microsoft word. However, I would rather have a Mac with all my favourite apps such as: iTunes, garage band, text edit, mail and so on already installed on it. Also, on a windows computer I could use JAWS. However, I can not afford upgrading JAWS whenever new versions are released. On the Mac VoiceOver will always stay up to date whenever a new version of MacOS is released. What do you think?
