aloha, dave!

what browser slash browsers are you using on leopard?  safari, iCab, 
Opera, FireFox or something else altogether?  if you use more than 
one, are there differences?

can you confirm the rumors that VoiceOver now has support for 
refreshable braille displays?  does anyone using a mac running
leopard also use a refreshable braille display?

actually, feedback from anyone using any kind of refreshable braille
display on any operating system with any user agent and AT would be 
extremely welcome...

thanks, dave, for the feedback, gregory.
