Hi To This Wonderful Community,
As a bit of background, I grew up heavily using JAWS and Windows in a work environment. About 8 years ago as the iPhone became fully accessible, I began using it and loved VO on the phone. I quickly purchased a Mac for personal use and to learn the Apple systems. I retired a couple of years ago and stopped using Windows and JAWS. For email, the web and other functions, the Mac is great and integration with my iPhone and iPad is extremely helpful.
Now, however, I've taken on new responsibilities and the organization I am working with uses only the Microsoft suite of products. I will have to edit documents, modify spreadsheets and work on PowerPoint presentations that will be shared with, and worked on by, others in the organization. I have found that translating back and forth between the Apple suite of productivity apps and the MS products is neither seamless nor perfect. Thus, I have tentatively concluded that I need to do this work in the Windows environment.
First, do folks agree with my conclusion or have you found the MS suite in OS to be easily useable and straightforward with VoiceOver?
Second, while my 2013 MacBook Air still works like a dream (which I find as one of the best Apple features - excellent quality), it won't support Windows 10 with BootCamp. I'm considering whether to just keep using this Mac for general purposes and buying a new Windows 10 machine or buying a new MadBook Air and using Windows through BootCamp. Any and all thoughts welcome.
