Hi folks,

If anyone has tried this you will realise that we don't really support the  
VoiceOver screen reader for Mac. We want to change that.

Opera has a beta-testing program where you sign a Non-disclosure  
agreement, and you can get advanced builds and some access to the bug  
tracking system. Right now we are looking for Apple VoiceOver users who  
are interested in having a bit of a play as a way of helping us to get the  
system right.

You will need to enter into a formal non-disclosure agreement - we have an  
accessible system for doing this. We don't have much of a sense of humour  
about people breaking the agreement because our customers value our  
ability to maintain confidentiality, so if you are looking to review it  
for a blog or newspaper be aware that there will be limits on what you can  
say (for now, nothing...). You must be 18 years old and "legally  
competent", and we want to know a bit more about you - a quick explanation  
of your background in accessibility and testing, where you live, and who  
you are working for/with (either paid or as a volunteer).

You also need to be able to handle english well enough for email, and to  
have a bit of patience - as anyone who has ever tried testing early  
versions of products will know.

If you're interested, please let me know and I will explain how to start  
the process...

Cheers

Chaals
