Welcome to the Mac!
Author Janet Ingber has updated her guide on Apple Macintosh computers running the Yosemite Operating System. Intended for all blind users, it explains how to use VoiceOver (Apple's onboard screen reader), learn the keyboard layout, choose preferences, navigate text, surf the Web, and use many of the standard applications that come with the Mac, such as Apple Mail, Safari, iTunes, and TextEdit. Read the table of contents here.
