How to use VoiceOver on Mac OS X Mountain Lion

Mountain Lion is the latest Operating System (OS) from Apple for all of their Mac products.

This does not mean that any skills you might have learned are obsolete but that new features have be added. The new features are meant to make the computer more accessible using VoiceOver.

The place to find how to use the new improved VoiceOver is on Apple's VoiceOver help website. This is from the Website.
