Hi everyone. Subject line pretty much sums it up. This comm hasn't been updated in awhile, and I'm wondering if the mods could include http://www.applevis.com as a possible resource? This is a website that discusses Apple's accessibility features for those of us who are visually impaired. I registered on there a year or so ago and have found it to be very good for the most part. Not everyone on there uses a Mac though, which I suppose is a bit of a drawback. Additionally, there's a certain user on there who says she wants to help out but her spelling is atrocious. She's actually posted stuff on there before with no errors, which makes me think she is being careless. Nobody in this comm though.

To that end I also have a question. I've been experiencing an issue on my MacBook where the amount of free disk space has decreased rather drastically. When I first got this computer as a Christmas gift in 2013, it had 120.11 gb of free space. I got a SuperDrive about a year ago for Christmas, which I was using to import my vast CD collection into iTunes. That whole process went very well, but once everything was complete I noticed something a bit odd. That is, the amount of free disk space had gone down to about 6 gb. I deleted some things on here in hopes of getting more free space back, including some voices used for the on-board screen reader. That seems to have helped a bit, and now I'm at about 27 gb free. In addition, I noticed a few days ago that the maximum on here is now 120.12 gb. I think I'm finally going to try and bite the bullet and take this machine into my local Apple store, if and when someone can go with me at a time that works for everyone. But I'm wondering if anybody here knows of any other tricks I can try. Someone mentioned audio formats as a possible cause of the memory decrease, but I can't figure out a way to verify that or anything. I do still have all or most of my CDs handy, so I could always re-import them if I had to. This is a mid-2013 MacBook Air running the latest build of OS X El Capitan.
