    Question voice recognition forblind person
    A new employer wants me to hook up a employee who is blind with a new
    mac which I have touted. Any one with suggestions on some soft ware to get this hooked up or do I need to hit an Apple retailer.....Rather do it here.
    Thanks

    Tim

    its built in, all you need is a mic, internal/external depending on the mac, click apple menu>system preferences>speech>speech recognition tab>set it all up there. just make sure that in sosund prefs, you select that mic as an input device. theres also Viavoice , which is very useful.
    if you have more questions, or need help, come back, and welcome to the forums.

    Tiger will supposedly have much improved "spoken interface" features designed specifically for blind users.

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/tiger/voiceover.html

    I'd suggest you try that out whenever Panther ships.

    10.3 Has a limited text-reading capability (In the Speech pane of System Preferences, under the Spoken Interface tab) and keyboard navigation (In the Universal Access and Keyboard panes.)
