    Good news article. Although I use Zoom and white-on-black to view this blog, the existence of VoiceOver was the selling point for me to get an iMac. It is my understanding that if a third party application uses the Cocoa framework, then that application is pretty much VoiceOver capable. In the future, WebKit should have enhanced accessibility support (Apple is contributing here), so those applications (like Safari) that use the WebKit rendering engine will have better VoiceOver navigation. Lioncourt.com is a good source for this type of information.

    I have read with interest your articles on Snow Leopard, and hope you will provide additional coverage in the future.
