WWDC, Help for the Visually Impaired, and Other Things

Category : Commentary/wwdcitem.txt

I may be able to go to WWDC this year. It looks like it may be interesting. But I have still four more weeks before I need to decide.

Here's an article that says, Apple is building help for the visually impaired into the next revision of OS X. It's going to be called Spoken Interface. In the time-honoured Apple way, its name alone is enough to tell you what it does. (Compare Rendezvous with Sun's JXTA). Also, in the time-honoured Apple way, it's going to be made available as a framework, so that all Cocoa applications will get access to its functionality with very little extra work.

So that is Apple's way of doing well by doing good.

Apparently Apple does listen to its user base. So, this is my wish. We've had HP people, DEC people, Sun, and now IBM people running Apple Singapore. When are we ever going to have Mac people running Apple Singapore? Maybe some food for thought.
