Thanks for your reply. I am making inquiries for my brother who is blind. He lives in Rockhampton, Australia, but there is no help for blind users. He has an Apple Mac with the Voiceover facility, and is quite adept at using the laptop for writing, but there's no one to ask if he experiences problems of any kind. Accessing the internet for instance is very difficult because of pop ups and adverts etc. I would like to know if there's anywhere online that specifically caters for problems encountered by blind users? Many thanks

We do here, and do not have ads ect. We support people on all ranges of Mac and other problems.So as long as he is able to use the computer, ie with the voiceover then we will be able to help him here, there would be no issue with this.We can even call him if needed when fixing a problem.

Best he does this himself as then replies go to his email address.
I would recommend this.
