# Developers will now have access to the "Metal" interface (in QT and iChat) via new GUI feature in all Jaguar tools. It will be available in all frameworks.
# Universal Access improvements includes full zoom support, offering users the ability to zoom into any part of the screen with support for rollovers and transparency as well as full motion DVD video. A new Screen Reader preference (in the Speech Control Panel) allows the computer to speak any text the mouse rolls over for improved navigation access. Jaguar will also include new visual notifications. All of these will have Developer APIs, allowing new applications to take advantage of the new Universal Access improvements. (Jobs did remark that Apple "was in the market for some good text-to-speech technology" after the data Victoria voice was used to speak text for the Screen Reader technology demonstration.)
A few other details: AppleCare (Apple tech support document) searching will be shipped standard with Sherlock 3; streams will no longer need any prebuffering; Palm syncing to Address Book promised "by the end of the year."
