  Hello Jeff,

  Welcome to the Blind-Apple list.

  I also created a batch file for launching a disk image. I find a batch file to be more convenient than typing the command at a dos prompt every time I want to use the emulator.


  You might be able to extract a .tz file using the free 7-zip utility. It can open/extract many compressionformats.



  Disk images can be found online from various sites. For example:




  These disks probably won't boot up talking. However, it is possible to add TexTalker and the necessary Hello program from a talking disk onto a non-talking disk using a utility called CiderPress. I have not yet figured out what TexTalker/startup files need to be copied between ProDos disks to make ProDos disks talk.

  My name is Jeff Weiss and I just joined the blind apple list.

  I used to publish a disk magazine for blind Apple users originally called

  Apple Talk.

  Due to a problem with licensing Dos for the magazine, I later changed the name to


  First, how do I read the archives?  I downloaded some files that end with .gz.  I guess this is some type of zip file, but where can I get the program to unzip the files?


  My next question is how do most of you boot your apple disks on the pc?  I have started launching mine with batch files, which makes the process much easier than typing out the entire launch commands.


  Also, I think Jason said that there are additional disk images available.  Are they available for download, or directly from Jason?


  That's enough for now, and I look forward to comments from other list members.

  Jeff Weiss
