I'd like an experts recommendation on the best webpage-authoring software for the Mac and a recommendation on email software that allows easy access to multiple email addresses.  Also, what's the state of voice recognition with the Mac and what's the best software to use for this?

For your first question, I'd recommend Adobe PageMill 2.0. Good WYSIWYG interface, easy to use, although a little slow when typing. (I'm completely sold on Adobe products.) Barring that, I'm quite happy knowing a bit of HTML, using a text editor with Search and Replace capabilites, and a browser such as Netscape to test my pages.

If you have a PowerPC, Netscape Communicator enables multiple users, and may accomplish what you want. I simple change my Mail and News preferences to access different email addresses.

Given Expert's Exchange policy of one question per post, I'll go for a grade having answered only 2 of your 3 questions. (Actually, I don't know that much about voice recognition on the Mac!)

Hi,
1.I think you should go for NetObject Fusion, a bit expensive but it have true WYSIWYG, and you are able to move text and graphics like in Quark Xpress.
2.Apple Cyberdog supports multiple acounts, you can check ten acounts in one session.
3.Apples Speech recognition enables you to open apps, shutdown the system etc

My 2¢ worth trying to gain back my 40 pt lost from clicking "back" button.....

Claris Homepage generates better script then Pagemill, also you can set the pref to display in which ever typeface you want, rather than 12pt times. For best result, I am currently testing "insta.html" a plugin for Freehand.... it converts rather convincingly

Claris Emailer is currently the only email client taht handles multiple accounts. You can do it with Eudora but requires fussing.

About Voice Recognition software. Saw Casper demo years back... I don't think we are anywhere closer to the promised land yet. There is a huge software for Wordperfect... something like "Power secretary" that apparently is the best you can get.
