MT-NewsWatcher is a Usenet client for the Mac. Based on John Norstad's NewsWatcher application, it adds a few enhancements to make newsreading faster and more enjoyable. These features include message filtering, spellchecking, speech recognition, and multithreading, which allows you to perform several different commands simultaneously.
