Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today we're gonna take a look at a really great way for quickly turning on and off VoiceOver. Now for those that might not know, VoiceOver's Apple screen reading software, and a screen reader gives a person with a visual impairment the ability to totally use their device, and it does this by speaking the items or information that's on our screen, and, I tell you, that is pretty fantastic. Now, the fastest way to turn on and off VoiceOver is by using Siri. So how about we jump right in and check it all out?
Now, we're using our iPhone in today's workshop. However, all of this will work pretty much the same whether we're using our iPhone or our iPad. All right, all we have to do to start Siri is to just say, "Hey, Siri," and then we'll say, "Turn on VoiceOver." Siri will announce: Okay, VoiceOver's now on. And, I tell you, it really works just that fast. So how about we give it a try?
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you: your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry: everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on, plus it connects you to the Hadley community and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts like me. Now, where were we?
