I've been a Mac user for almost four years. All this time, I've been using a Windows machine and JAWS - because I have a job that required me to carry out advanced word processing and to create and update a number of spreadsheets.
I've spent today using the new Pages and Numbers apps. Although it is still early days, I am willing to go on record with my opinion that the mac has now come of age for VoiceOver uses and is no longer just a lea lea leisure and lifestyle device but can now be used in anger.
The speech offered in Numbers compares favourably with that of the latest version of JAWS. I don't know enough about Numbers to say if it could be used by the sort of people who have really massive Excell spreadsheets, but it is plenty enough for me.
Tables in Pages work a dream and again, the speech offered is easily the equal of JAWS.
I didn't believe this three years ago, but the makers of JAWS should be very worried in my opinion.
Of course, in over 90% of the real world of business Windows and Office still rule the roost, but you have to wonder how long that is going to last with the way Microsoft has been run recently.
