Thank you for this video. I do volunteer work with kids at our local court. The woman who mentored me has Parkinson's and since she sees me as the "computer guy", I've have been trying to help her use the Mac's accessibility features so she can continue working. As I'm getting into the topic of accessibility I'm finding good quality tutorials are few and far between. I'd encourage you to do more, as you have a knack for it.

Hi Patrick, thanks for the kind words. Yes, We should do more around accessibility.
