Yes...this is all true and very well explained, Adam - thank you!

Take a look at how beautiful the Macintosh reverses everything for  
the Blind...here is a page from DocumentMaker the way it looks on the  
Mac, when you choose to reverse your screen...I like it so much  
myself I reverse my screen sometimes just to see everything reversed  
it is so beautiful to look at! (see attached)..

I would be happy to raise the money to get a Macintosh for Andre just  
so his life could be easier - imagine how wonderful to be able to see  
everything on your computer, Andre, with no struggle...

It is done with one keystroke - you can toggle back and forth and  
everything on the screen reverses without any special programming...
