macs are accessible to the blind.

there are two ways to access them.

If you use outspoken, you can use a mac through version 9.2 of the operating 
system.  If you have osx, you can use a mac but it is currently a bit tricky 
and will soon change.  You can also use osx through a remote log in and you 
have all the good stuff from the unix text console available to you and you 
can add more if you like.

**No, but the number cited is a mainstream figure.  It includes three
percent of mac's, which are not accessible to the blind.
