My 75 year old father in law is natively smart (Princeton grad) but has no experience at all with computers & has trouble reading real small print on paper. Any suggestions as to setting him up on a simple Mac interface that may be voice driven. Mainly would use for: listening to audio news etc., emails to grandchildren, writing notes to friends etc.

Please advise.

ListenDo! from http://www.macspeech.com is a program that uses voice commands to open stuff in the finder, select menu items, push buttons, run applescripts, type text macros and more. I beta tested it, and it is a wonderful program.

You didn't see the release of IBM's ViaVoice, did you? :-O)
