I think my email didn't get through. If it did, sorry. I am noticing many more 
apps and screens jumping around on swipes and just touching. Now that Apple has 
stopped showing things under your fingers unless focus is in that area swiping 
is the only way to get around. When swiping the screen will jump all over, 
especially to the top making it necessary to swipe again to where you were 
before it jumped. Sometimes it even won't let you get back to that point. Was 
this a problem before the roll out of 14 in the betas? Is it worth calling 
Apple Accessibility to alert them? Thanks.

Re: Restoring hidden pages

2020-09-22 Thread regina alvarado
Maria, find an app flick up to edit double tap and find where it says page one 
of whatever and double tap on that that brings up the hidden pages and also the 
pages that are on hidden. Look through them and unhide those that you don’t 
want. It really works and all of the apps on that page will be back on the 
page. They may not be in the order you had them though so you may have to edit 
where they are. Hope that helps. Sorry, I’m not a very good dictator. Hope you 
understand what I’m talking about.

Squirrelly VO

2020-09-22 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, finding more and more apps and pages where VO doesn't focus and flips 
around. Was this a problem in the betas? Is it worth a call to Accessibility to 
alert them? Really annoying. Hope this one is fixed before anything else.

Alan, I am so glad that your phone is fine now. What a hassle you went through. 
It seems that even though there is a beta testing sequence when the final

Re: trouble turning Iphone SE on

Oh good idea. I forgot that I once had a person from Apple Accessibility show

password then the phone is an on. That’s another way to know. Thanks for that 
you just reminded me of that little gem.

Re: trouble turning Iphone SE on

2020-09-19 Thread regina alvarado
I can barely see the lights sometimes, but I can't always see them. After I 
turn off the phone and wait for a minute or two I push and hold the side button 
for about 5 seconds or so. If I don't hear it ping right away I leave it alone 
for a t least 2 minutes and then try again. Another way to see if your screen 
is on is by trying the mute button on the left side of the phone If it says 
nothing when you push it toward the back of the phone you know the phone is not 
on. The mute mute button is the indented switch on the left side of the phone 
at the top that you can move toward the back of the phone and then toward the 
front of the phone. 

Your second question was the re-boot that you want to avoid unless absolutely 
necessary. It is push and release the volume up button, then volume down button 
and then push and hold the side button on the right of the phone. Hope this 
helps.

Re: Is there an alternative way to access the iOS 14 App library screen?

2020-09-18 Thread regina alvarado
Donald, if I’m understanding what you want, possibly not, you want them 
alphabetized, right question if you tap on search it will take all your apps 
and alphabetize them. At the very edge of the right hand of the screen is an 
index as you would have with your contacts that you can flick up and down and 
go to the letter you want. I hope this is what you were talking about

Speak Screen will read the screen without VoiceOver being on if you do the two 
finger swipe down from the top of the screen.
Also, Speak selected text can give speech that may help or not,, they can try 
it and see.
The one advantage to speak screen is that if you start it speaking with 
something lengthy like a book in the Apple Books app, you can lock the screen 
and it will continue reading until you stop it.

How does speech work on the iPhone, without VoiceOver?  Can you have the phone 
read the screen?  Does Siri talk to you?  Does Siri work the same way as with 
VoiceOver on?  My ZoomText student is using his phone visually, and having a 
little speech available would help him a lot.

2020-07-20 Thread regina alvarado
I got this app yesterday and really like it. However, interesting they do not 
have a cardinal among the birds. Maybe it's called something other than 
cardinal? Still exploring and love all the sounds. Not many songbirds near me 
in FL.

In 2009 I bought the first iPod Touch with VoiceOver, the 3rd generation.
At that time, the normal battery life was maybe 5 hours of use.
But, if you were listening to audio, while the device was locked, you could get 
40 hours.
I tested that very soon as I had ripped most of my CD collection into iTunes so 
I had probably 60 hours of music.
I select songs, shuffle all, and started it playing.
I plugged in headphones, so I wouldn’t hear it all the time while I was 
working, etc.
I checked the battery after 36 hours and it was at 20%.
 
That is still true.  If you are playing audio, or video for that matter, and 
lock the phone, you get far greater battery life.
 
Whether that has to do with the screen brightness or not, I don’t know, but 
probably not as having the device locked does more than just blank the screen.
 
I know with my new SE 2020, with screen brightness set to auto and leaving the 
screen curtain on, I get a full day and more depending on usage, but I use it a 
lot every day for books, email, reading news, searching the web, etc.
Yesterday, from 100% in the morning, it was at about 50% when I went to bed.
It doesn’t lose much at all over night, maybe 1 or 2%.

Hi, On the Applevis newsletter there was a game called Home Quest. I know from 
looking in different places that people are playing it successfully. So, I must 
be the dumbest player ever to try this game! Can anyone get me started on the 
game please? I understand what I am supposed to do just not how to achieve it. 
Everything is grayed out, and what workers and population I have inadvertently 
gotten are starving. Please be specific on what I need to do. Thanks for 
helping me save my game.

Home quest

2020-07-04 Thread regina alvarado
In the applevis newsletter there was a game called Home Quest. I know sometimes 
my ability to understand immediately understand what you must do to play the 
game is not very quick, but for the life of me I cannot figure out what I am 
doing or supposed to do. When I tap on a button that is not grayed out it then 
grays out and I cannot use it again to do anything to help my civilization. It 
says I need more population and more wood and stone to build farms to grow more 
food, but I wait almost a day before they are not grayed out again. Is this 
normal? Am I missing something? Is there somewhere I can go to get instructions 
for the game? On Applevis, obviously people know what they are doing since they 
write about fighting others and building more. Is there a tutorial for dummies? 
Thanks.

I recommend buying the adapter from Apple that matches the type of memory card 
you have.
The below link is to the Apple store for one for SD cards, but at the bottom of 
the page there are links to a USB adapter as well as others.
Since iOS 13, you can use these adapters for any files through the files app to 
copy files to or from the card.
The descriptions only mention cameras, but it works with any files.
You have to plug your lightning power cord into the adapter, and the card, then 
the adapter has a short cable that plugs into your phone lightning jack.
That way your phone is powered, otherwise the phone cannot copy files to and 
from a card.
They are all around $39.

To Richard, making certain correct device

2020-06-30 Thread regina alvarado
Richard, a problem. The link went to the Canadian apple store if that makes 
sense so I couldn't use. I have the apple store app. Just to make certain I 
will get all the pieces, I am looking at a lightning to sd card reader. Is that 
correct? Will that write to the card from files? It says nothing about an 
adapter so making sure. Thanks for your excellent help!

Re: Siri problem

I use Samantha for Siri and Tom for voice-over, but I would sure like the Paul 
voice from Jaws to be available. For me that was the easiest to understand. Tom 
is not bad, though. Siri is working fine by the way on my SE2.

Talkback is the most common Android one; Voice Assist is one for Samsung. I

I like Siri and Samantha, so haven't tried any of the other ones for my iPhone. 
I've heard Douglas Walker's male voices on his phone on the Hadley videos, and 
they don't appeal to me. It is better though, that we have the choices to make.

Re: VO’s assigned gestures transferrs to new phone?

2020-06-01 Thread regina alvarado
I am assuming you are talking about special gestures you set up to do a gesture 
that is hard for you to do. I set up my SE by putting the phone next to my old 
phone. The transfer was flawless and all settings and my changes transferred 
over perfectly. Not sure if you use your last iCloud backup, but I would think 
things would transfer fine. Definitely not sure about itunes, never used it.

Re: Having Trouble Getting Text Tone to Work

I also sometimes don't get the tone. I have determined for me this happens most 
often if I am doing something else in another app or on internet. Wish it could 
be changed, but perhaps this was done on purpose by Apple to not bother someone 
on another task? I don't really think this is the reason, but it is the only 
one that makes sense to me. Maybe someone else knows?

Blank emails

2020-05-15 Thread regina alvarado
Richard, it’s fine now. I did reboot my phone, but it seemed once I got rid of 
all the messages that were blank ““ that Gmail must’ve righted itself. A friend 
of mine has been telling me that she’s getting emails from me that are 
supposedly videos only I am not sending them. She told me to change my Google 
password, and I have done this twice now. Wondering if this could have been 
someone trying to hack. I just don’t know what to do about this. The password 
is so long that I have to put it in keychain. I know keychain is encrypted so I 
have no idea what’s going on. However, it’s better now so I guess I will just 
leave it be for the moment.

First is there anyway using voice over to know when your remote needs to be 
charged and I know there is a cable inside the box so question is can you use 
your wall plug for your phone to charge the remote.
Where would I find the place where I update all apps and check for software 
updates or is this something the Apple TV will just do on its own from time to 
time.
When I first started to use my Apple TV I noticed that you could swipe up to 
close apps as you do on your phone but all of a sudden it is telling me to use 
the actions rotor to close everything how do I revert back to the original way 
of swiping up to close the app switcher.
Are there any other VoiceOver settings or even other settings for the device 
that would be helpful to change to make the experience easy for a voiceover 
user.
Finally I know about the main stream apps Disney+ prime Netflix etc. but are 
there any games or apps for fun which are available and that are accessible 
that you all enjoy.
Thanks for your help.

Re: A new user to Apple tv 4th generation with some questions

2020-05-07 Thread regina alvarado
Jen, I was curious about knowing when to charge the remote too, but not to 
worry. The TV will tell you. When you turn on" the Apple TV if the remote needs 
juice you will immediately tell you. As for using your phone charger or cable, 
you can. I'll let others tell you, and me, about games.

Hi I just received an Apple TV fourth generation today end it is set up but I 
have some questions.
First is there anyway using voice over to know when your remote needs to be 
charged and I know there is a cable inside the box so question is can you use 
your wall plug for your phone to charge the remote.
Where would I find the place where I update all apps and check for software 
updates or is this something the Apple TV will just do on its own from time to 
time.
When I first started to use my Apple TV I noticed that you could swipe up to 
close apps as you do on your phone but all of a sudden it is telling me to use 
the actions rotor to close everything how do I revert back to the original way 
of swiping up to close the app switcher.
Are there any other VoiceOver settings or even other settings for the device 
that would be helpful to change to make the experience easy for a voiceover 
user.
Finally I know about the main stream apps Disney+ prime Netflix etc. but are 
there any games or apps for fun which are available and that are accessible 
that you all enjoy.
Thanks for your help.

Re: Fast charger ipHone8+

2020-05-04 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, to use USBC charging do you need both a USBC charger and a USBC cord? Would 
the SE2020 be set up to accept USBC charging? 

Reggie Alvarado 

On May 4, 2020, at 4:55 AM, Malcolm Parfitt  wrote:

Hello,

Your iPhone8 has some basic charging profiles.

Firstly, the charger that came with your phone has an output of 5 Volts at 1 
Amp.  This gives you a total output of 5 Wats and is the slowest charging 
method.

Some chargers and power packs are rated at 5 Volts and 2 Amps that is 10 Wats.  
This is obviously twice the power of Apple’s charger.

Some chargers are rated at 5 Volts and 2.5 Amps giving you 12 Wats of power.

The fastest charging method is to use what is known as a USB Power Delivery 
compatible charger.  This charges at 9 Volts at 2 Amps giving you 18 Wats of 
capacity.  There are also power packs that deliver this rate of charge too.

All of the fast chargers 18 Wats have a USB C socket that will power your 
device and also charge the power pack too if that’s what you’re using.

So to fast charge your iPhone you will need a charger with a 9 Volt and 2 Amp 
rating or higher.  Your iPhone will control the power it draws so a higher 
rated charger will not harm it.

So to achieve a fast charge you will need a USB C to Lightning cable too.

The fast charge will charge your iPhone from flat to about 50% in half an hour. 
 This does not mean your iPhone will be fully charged in an hour though.  As 
the battery is charged to 50% it will gradually reduce the charging rate.  This 
is governed by the Battery Controller and has nothing to do with the charger.  
At around 80% your phone will be on a trickle charge.

Anker chargers, power packs and cables are generally well thought of.

Hope this is of use to you.

Re: Turning screen curtain off?

2020-05-02 Thread regina alvarado
You can also set up another gesture that is not being used by one of the iPhone 
gestures to do the  three finger triple tap for the screen curtain. I used one 
finger quadruple tap. 

 Reggie Alvarado

Mitch,
A two or four finger double tap have nothing to do with the screen curtain.
The original question was to help someone who cannot do the three finger 
gesture, so it comes down to Voice Control, which is there to make it possible 
for someone without use of their hands, or at least not effective use of their 
hands to access everything on an iOS device with or without VoiceOver.

Impressions SE2020

2020-04-29 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, I decided to get an SE2020 because it is a smaller phone and would fit my 
smaller hands. I received it on Monday. These are my observations so far. 

The setup was wonderful and very easy. I put the two phones together when it 
was asked if I wanted to transfer data from my old phone. It was perfect except 
I had to download an update which at the end put me back in the hello screen. I 
could not find the English hello so I called Apple Accessibility and they told 
me to shut off my phone and bring it back up. When I did so it asked for my pin 
and when I had put it in I again was asked for my apple ID password. Once typed 
in there was the whole screen with my folders and apps, some loading. 

The fingerprint and home button has been a challenge to remember as I had 
gotten used to the haptic swipe. However, the fingerprint is really snappy and 
quick. The loading of pages and opening of apps is also snappy. Of course the 
phone is much easier for me to hold. At the moment I don't have a case, but 
that is on its way. I am hoping it will not make the phone too much bigger. 

All in all, this has been a great change for me. It looks very much like Apple 
will not go back to the smaller phones so it will be my phone for as long as 
possible before I need to get a new one which will likely be much bigger.

Frankly, I'm probably turning threading off again since 1. You cannot delete

Re: The app switcher and the iphone ten r. "

2020-03-13 Thread regina alvarado
Though I do the same gesture as Carolyn, I know it works with assistive touch. 
It puts it in a list of things to have the phone do and you swipe to it and 
double tap. Much quicker with the swipe and pop-pop.

1. Place finger at the bottom of the screen.
2. Flick up until it bops twice.
3. You're there. Flick up with three fingers to close aps. I do it all day 
long. 

I am so thankful to have had the information about how the newer phones worked, 
studied them, and never had a problem. My husband was so relieved, because he 
knows less about each newer phone that comes out. I did not need his help.

Hi Everyone!! 
Does anyone know of an easy way to access the app switcher on an iphone 10  r? 
Or is it possible to add or to access the app switcher from the assistive touch

Ok, thanks in advance for the help.

Hello friends.

I apologise if this topic has been discussed but I have a particular reason for

If you will allow me to explain.

I was recently admitted into hospital where I was diagnosed with 
Pyelonephritis, and sepsis.  During my stay in hospital I was also found to 
have an atrial fibrillation.  They are not sure whether the heart issue was 
caused by the sepsis and I have to undergo further tests.

a totally blind person to check blood pressure.

I would appreciate your recommendations and thank you in advance for them.

Re: Language Learning Apps

2020-01-20 Thread regina alvarado
I would think you would tap the one you think is correct. After that first 
lesson the pics stop. I do remember seeing words that could have had pics by 
them, and I just guessed at it. Also when you are going into a lesson there is 
a tips item. Tap on that to get hints for the lesson. By the way, I admit I had 
some previous understanding of Spanish so maybe I was ahead of the game. I 
would also suggest sending complaints to developers. Duolingo is quite aware of 
blind users, but perhaps they have not thought of totally blind users. I will 
also add my email to others emails. However, I know these pesky pics disappear 
after a certain number of lessons. I am much further along so I never get them 
now.

I don't think you get what I'm describing, so I'll try again. The app speaks

is water?" with a list of words that can be clicked. I have been told by 
someone I show the app to that each word has a picture beside it and you must 
chose the word associated with the correct picture. I assure you this is the 
Duolingo app and I have confirmed with multiple sighted people that this is how

Re: 01 Spanish Basics Lesson 1 Duolingo

2020-01-19 Thread regina alvarado
Penny, I have been using Duolingo for at least 2 years now. I use it as a free 
app, though you need to go past some ads to keep it free. Not sure what things 
you get extra for subscribing or how much it is. I didn't think the description 
of what they gave you to subscribe was worth whatever the subscription was 
since I can do what I want to as a free app. The app can be a bit flaky at 
times, but if you are patient with it the content and lessons are extremely 
good. If you miss a lot in a lesson you will continue to give you the same 
material until you master it. Like any learning app you get things for doing 
the lesson such as a streak of days, hearts to do lessons, and crowns for each 
series of lessons you do. You can open these things to explore what they can 
buy. I currently have 272 days learning Spanish. There are also Spanish stories 
you can listen to to get familiar with listening to Spanish. They also give you 
credit. You will need to do two lessons in a day to get experience you have to 
have 20 points per day. Stories that you read give you all the experience you 
need for the day. I hope this helps a little. You just have to get into the app 
and explore. Sometimes it helps if you turn off the writing part of it and just 
pick your sentences from the words that show up in a list. I found this much 
easier, though you still have to write sometimes. I would put Spanish in your 
browser and go to the keyboard that way. It has all the accents. As I said I 
hope this helps some. If you have any other questions right on the list and 
I’ll try to help.

Re: What is the expand speaking bar and how do I disable it?

2019-12-25 Thread regina alvarado
I have really learned to like the vertical scroll bar. When there are multiple 
pages just flicking through them is much easier than flicking with 3 fingers to 
get there. Sometimes it gets in the way, but I find if I go out of the page I 
am on and back in I can move it a little. These minor problems are not worth 
the loss of the bar in my opinion. It is like the index in contacts to move to 
a letter. Very handy to put you close to what you want in a list.

So, write both accessibil...@apple.com and go to the www.apple.com/feedback

But don't confuse the vertical bar with any particular setting as it appears 
all over the place.

The other option is to learn to use it to get more or less of the screen into 
view.

I have no idea if that is there for sighted users.

Actually, that is from the speak selection setting. 
If you never want that, go to Settings, Accessibility, Spoken Content, and turn 
it off.
In there is also the speak screen where you can have it read to you without 
VoiceOver.
The hints/explanations are just after each item there in settings.

2019-12-22 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, a friend is a prolific FB user. All of a sudden she got a message stating 
that suspicious things were noted on her account. I assume she was hacked. Is 
there anything she can do to save her account? We went in and changed password. 
However, now she is locked out until later tonight. I told her to wait and try 
the new password, but I am really frustrated because I just don't know what to 
tell her, and she thinks I am a computer whiz, not!

Re: notifications repeating

2019-12-20 Thread regina alvarado
Well, this is only my experience. I have tried every part of the screen, every 
kind of Z and even an up and down motion for as long as I have been using 
iPhone which is since 2013. I only ever got it to work about 4 times in that 
span of time. Maybe my shaky hands? I don't know, but thank you Apple for 
giving me the ability to assign another gesture to it. With mail it has been a 
fantastic thing. When I finish a conversation I just scrub with 3 fingers 
tapping 3 times and I go back to the inbox and can swipe up to delete. Of 
course then there is using it to dismiss notifications, hoping very soon it 
goes back to dismissing itself like before 13. Just so glad we have options!

It’s not done in any corner of the screen and in fact it’s probably one of the 
most forgiving gestures because you can do it just about any which way as long 
as you move 2 fingers across the screen in a zigzag or Z-shaped sort of way.
Start left to right, right to left, up and down, down and up, it all works.

The scrub gesture is done in the left corner of the screen. It is a three line 
movement back and forth. I have done it successfully only about 4 times. That 
is why I changed the scrub to another gesture which we can do in 13.3. I now 
tap with 3 fingers 3 times and the scrub is done and the notification is gone. 
Works beautifully with the new gesture, but I sure couldn't do it with the 
gesture Apple gave it.

Notifications problem

2019-12-19 Thread regina alvarado
Just talked to Accessibility. The engineers are working on this, and I put in a 
request for a fix. The person even said he has experienced this with VO on. He 
said it would just continue and I agreed so if away from the phone it was very 
annoying.

close all apps and reboot the phone or, if it really is serious, do a Reset 
Network Settings to see if that helps.

In the beginning mine did not drain any faster, but I've noticed this week that 
it has been draining a little faster. Last night when I was asleep I saw 
battery use of two percent per hour. So not sure what's going on with that.

 Dave, that Amazon comment was very ignorant and entirely inappropriate.
 Kiruna is from India and you may want to remember that not everybody knows

 I am in Canada and I get lots of people who ask me where I got my guide

Carolyn, I am so sorry. The setting is in the control screen for your aids 
where it shows how the mics are set. At the top it says streaming to right and 
under that streaming to left. Toggle them off and on. Sound effects will be 
back in the aids.

Hi,
sorry I can’t be much help. I have had nothing but trouble since updating to 
IOS 13. Eventually I have been able to re-pair the aids to the phone. I have a 
case with Apple the problem is that when I stop using BO or hang up from calls  
 my aids take about 2 minutes to return to normal use so I can hear properly  
The noise around me. I believe the problem is in the bluetooth as I can not 
pair a digital tool via bluetooth to my phone. I have been able to do all these 
things till IOS 13. 
Frankly I am not a happy camper at the moment.  
I have expensive hearing aids and a relatively expensive tool, neither I can 
use to there full potential. 
Are your hearing aids Made for iPhone? If so I probably be able to help.

Re: Pairing with Bluetooth.

2019-11-02 Thread regina alvarado
 
Carolyn, Don't unpair and re-pair. Go to audio in accessibility, and it should 
show toward the bottom sound to right and sound to left, not sure of the words 
but it is obvious. Toggle both of these, and after toggling off and back on the 
sound effects are back where they should be. This is at least what happened 
with my aids. Hope it happens for you also. I will check the words and send the 
correct ones back. Didn't want to lose the email. Give me a couple minutes.

Notifications don’t leave

2019-10-30 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, wondering if it is only my phone. Just annoying so if I have to do what I 
have been doing so be it. Just curious to know if anyone else has noticed this. 
When I get a notification it no longer leaves the screen after a couple 
seconds. I actually have to dismiss it. Sometimes it gets in the way to 
continue to do what I wanted to do. I am running 13.2 on an XR.

Re: If you like Overcast it seems you now need iOS 13

2019-10-13 Thread regina alvarado
What I have heard second hand is that developers are having a lot of problem 
going to 13. A lot of them are just doing what a lot of users are doing and 
waiting for fixes to help them. Only what I heard, not saying it is true for 
all developers. A lot of overhauls in 13 and so on. All in all, I have had 
minimal difficulties with 13 and so on.

Hi Mary,
 
Maybe whatever version of Overcast one has on a device running iOS 12 will 
continue to work, but maybe then you won’t get updates.
I am actually not just spreading an idea with no basis in fact, I was simply 
repeating what it said in the “What’s New” for the latest update from 2 days 
ago which I am quoting below and which you can read for yourself in the App 
Store description for Overcast:
 
What’s New - Oct 11, 2019 
Version 2019.10
- Dark Mode support
- Fixes for iOS 13
iOS 13 is now required.
 
A bit further down in the app description it says:
Compatibility
Requires iOS 13.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
 
Best regards,
Sieghard

So a few minutes ago I was on the phone with someone using my ear pods. When I 
hung up the call, voice over was there, but it was very soft in my left ear. I 
turned voice over on and back off and it came back just fine. So this phone

The quickest and easiest way is to do a hard reset although I did two calls

that time after I hung  up my book resumed playing and Voiceover was fine. I 
have to do this a few more times to see if this is actually a work-around for

Hi, i am using an XR with 13.1.2. I was very surprised when problems with MFI 
began showing up. Wonder if it is just the older phones? I have had no problem 
here. Everyding seems to be working. 

Carolyn Hawes, I spoke with a friend of yours last night, Donna Corson. She 
said you were extremely knowledgable on all things hearing and hearing aids. 
She told me I want to use a program outside that is closest to analog aids so I 
can hear all around me. Any thoughts on this? On the Oticons I have an all 
around program. Is this the same thing? Is that the program to tweak for 
outside? Thanks for thoughts.

How to delete mail conversations

2019-09-29 Thread regina alvarado
With all the questions roiling around I think my question got lost so I will 
ask again. I have an XR running 13.1.1. When in mail, I tap on the conversation 
I want to read. I find the first message and read it. Now, when I swipe up or 
down on the message I have a number of choices. I can reply, etc. One of these 
options is trash. On my phone this does nothing. Any way to make it delete the 
message or let me go through the messages and trash altogether? If I begin 
reading a conversation and keep deleting at the botom of the page sometimes the 
delete gets hidden by parts of the conversation. I have to go back to the front 
page and reenter where I was reading. Thanks for any help on this.

Re: App updates:

2019-09-28 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, hope this helps. Go to the app store. Next, with one finger double tap and 
hold on the icon for the app store. When you hear a quick ascending sound pick 
up your finger. Now there will be a list of options. Swipe to updates and 
double tap. You are placed in your account and about two-thirds of the way down 
the screen it will say something about update. For good measure to make certain 
all updates ar  visible, I do a three-finger swipe down to refresh the screen. 
Now all updates will be visible by swiping to the right. You can skip any you 
don't Want to update.

Hi! Folks:

I just downloaded the new iOS 13.1.1, and noticed that there is a difference in 
the area where are you update your apps when you go into the settings app on 
your main screen of your iPhone. I find it a bit confusing as there was an 
indication where you could tap on for updates which would give you a list of 
what apps need to be updated.

My question is, how do you know which apps to update as I find new apps that 
are not on my phone yet are mixed in with the ones that possibly need to be 
updated. It seems that the original update section has been either changed or 
removed and amalgamated into a different set up.

Can someone please give me some information on this so I do not download apps 
that I do not need or want. Thank you so much in advance.

Trash option in messages

2019-09-28 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, i have a question about the native mail app. When you open the app and find 
a conversation and double tap on it and read the first message  you flick up 
and there is a trash option. When I tap on this it does nothing. Is there a way 
to get this to work? Sometimes the delete at the bottom is not very easily 
touched. The screen seems to jump around. Can i fix this? Thanks.

Re: How to enter my Apple ID password on the Apple Watch with the Watch OS 6.0

2019-09-25 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, if it truly works like Apple TV, try to flick down on the iPhone where it 
shows the keyboard. I should say there is some kind of a message on the 
keyboard on the iPhone flicked up-and-down on their app and it will to ask you 
if you want to use it and double tap and it’ll bring up The Apple keyboard on 
the phone. Sorry I’m dictating, and I’m not used to dictating. What I’m trying 
to say is that some kind of a message comes up on the screen of the iPhone 
flick up and down on it and there should be an option to allow you to bring up 
the keyboard on my iPhone. Then you can type in your Apple ID there and it will 
automatically bring it up on the watch. I haven’t upgraded yet on my watch, but 
I’m sure I’ll see the same thing. It took me a long time to learn that I’m 
Apple TV, button down I can use it the way it supposed to be used. I don’t do 
it often, but it really works. Hopefully it will work on your watch also. Good 
luck.

Re: Slide keyboard and Apple Pay and Apple ID charging

2019-09-24 Thread regina alvarado
I guess I can’t explain properly. You have not had it happen to you apparently. 
I can see the keyboard sometimes and it will turn off on its own. May be fixed 
with the upgrade. I have used it four this whole email and it works fairly 
well. It will take a little time and practice, though. Thanks for the help. Oh, 
when you type you don’t have to put in spaces, only when you put in 
punctuation. Pretty neat.

Hi Reggie,

I am not sure I understand, do you want to turn it off permanently or do you 
want to use it? If you haven't turned it off then it is as I said, you don't 
have to do anything to use it except what I explained, when you are in an edit 
field and the on-screen keyboard is there, find the first letter of the word 
you want to type, wait for the little tone and then start sliding your finger 
to all the letters.
If you have a word with a double letter, as in the double t in "letter" you 
just slide to the T, then move on to the last 2 letters, E and R, it will still 
predict the word and insert it correctly.

This will be a feature you either love or hate, there will be many who won't

Slide keyboard and Apple Pay and Apple ID charging

2019-09-23 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, two questions. First, I have slide keyboard set in settings, general, 
keyboards. How do I bring it up when I want to use it? I saw I could put it in 
rotor. Is that the only way to bring it up? 

Second, I have my card in the apple ID. I do not want wallet or apple pay. Does 
my card in apple ID have anything to do with apple pay? If it is correct in 
apple ID it will continue to charge the things like apple music etc. Even if 
apple pay is not used? Thanks for any help with these two things.

Re: IOS13 are some rotor ems grayed out or?

2019-09-21 Thread regina alvarado
Hi, I noticed language also grade out in my iOS 13. I also noticed that braille 
table was grade out. To my way of thinking, it would be more important to gray 
out language than braille table. I would like to take braille table out of my 
rotor. I think a lot of what Apple has done is to make the rotor Show links and 
visited links or whatever you have in the rotor at the time that it is needed. 
I changed the gesture to do the rotor to make it easier for me and also so I 
could teach a friend of mine how to finally get rotor options. I think it is 
going to be a real help to her. She has never been able to use the rotor. I 
always did, but this makes it much easier for me.

The Language has always been dimmed. I believe the Braille Table is new, and 
yes it is also dimmed or grayed out, whichever you prefer.
I haven't tried to move them in the order for a long time.

Re: How do you8u turn off two factor authentication?

2019-08-03 Thread regina alvarado


Hi, where can you access your two-factor verification in settings. I want to 
add to my numbers, thank you Mark. I have forgotten how I accessed this. Thanks 
so much.

Reggie Alvarado 

On Aug 3, 2019, at 5:45 PM, M. Taylor  wrote:

Hello Chris,

Your comments don’t make sense to me.

First, in order to setup 2-factor authentication, you must also add at least 1 
rescue SMS phone number contact to your profile.

Second, when you are required to verify your account, in the same prompt, the 
dialog box includes a link that says something like, didn’t get code?  If you 
click on that link, then the code is sent to your SMS number.  Once this is 
done, you need only open the text message and, more often than not, the code 
will be automatically entered into the required field, for you.

By the way, you can have as many rescue SMS numbers associated with your 
2-factor authentication profile, as you like.

In my case, for example, i have 3 telephone numbers in my profile.  I can have 
the verification code sent to any of them at any time.  This eliminates the 
need to cary multiple Apple devices at all times.

I’m not suggesting that 2-factor authentication is perfect but I am arguing 
that it is a necessary evil in a world were thieves live and breathe to rob us 
of our identity.  Also, I prefer 2-factor on Apple to that of Google’s system, 
by far-and-away.

Re: Anyone who uses hearing aids, please read

2019-07-27 Thread regina alvarado

Hi, I am extremely interested in being in the meeting if I can. Earlier this 
year I tried a new pair of hearing aids that my Audiologist thought would be 
fantastic as I could control the programs and she could send me tweaks to my 
program also. It ended up to be a disaster. Accessibility just was not there. I 
gave up after 2 months and decided to keep my old set. However, these are 
coming to their end as it has been 8 years or so. I would buy a new pair if I 
could be assured of accessibility. I went to the link but only found an email 
address for contact. How do I find the form you are talking about. I would be 
happy to contact them. A question, however, do audiologists work with only one 
or two companies? I have so appreciate all the understanding and help my 
audiologist has given me, and I don't want to stop going there. I will try to 
find the form again, and I really, really hope we can meet with this company. 
Sounds like they would make some money if they helped us.

Hi,
 
I am a long-time hearing aid user. I have had resound hearing aids in the past. 
The lack of accessibility and commitment to fix it has been a long-standing 
problem. Last year I purchased new hearing aids from Oticon. Not only does the 
sound quality blow Resound right out of the water, the accessibility of their 
app is considerably better.
 
When my audiologist was helping me select new yearing aids, she mentioned that 
she had attended a conference where there was limited discussion regarding 
accessibility of apps for individuals who are blind/visually impaired and using 
hearing aids. If my memory serves me right, she mentioned that Apple was 
working with several hearing aid companies to make sure pairing of the hearing 
aids went as smoothly as possible. May i suggest you contact Apple 
Accessibility to see which hearing aid companies they are working with on this 
project.
 
Best,

Re: Ending a call with Siri?

2019-06-12 Thread regina alvarado

This is an interesting and timely problem. I have a friend who got her screen 
curtain on but could not do the three finger triple tap to get it off. I know 
this was anxiety and perhaps a little frustration mixed in because when she put 
down the phone overnight just like that the next morning she tried on a whim 
and it went off. However, during the time she was having trouble because she 
had put on assisted touch I began trying to figure out how to make a new 
gesture for her in assistive touch. When I called Apple Accessibility about the 
problem,after I failed myself to help, they told me assistive touch is not 
hooked (wrong word, but not sure what the word is, to VO. It didn't make sense 
to me because people who are blind sometimes have difficulty with their hands 
just like sighted people. They told me there was no way to help the situation, 
but when I pointed out the problem she said she would absolutely put the 
problem of assistive touch to the engineers. So, no way of knowing if there may 
be a solution, but at least they are looking into it. The rotor and the twist 
is another really hard gesture to do for people with bad hands, shaking or 
wrist problems. I myself can do it, but I cannot turn back. I have to go 
completely through my rotor settings after using one to find a previous one. No 
understanding of why. My wrist just won't go left. Anyway, if they work on this 
problem and hook the answer to VO I think it can only make the iPhone 
experience even better for more people.

If you cannot double tap with two fingers because of a tremor disorder, maybe 
kissing the phone twice is a good way to go.
Maybe, just maybe, with iOS 13 Apple will finally allow switch controls with 
VoiceOver.
I've complained about this from day one as some of our clients cannot use 
iPhones because of tremors and switch controls are out because they also have 
to have VoiceOver.

Hi, question about pluto TV. How do you get the sound of the movie or TV turned 
off so you can hear what you are swiping past?

Hi!
I use Pluto, but the secret is, is to press enter on watch movies and TV shows 
at the bottom right of the phone or tablet.
I cannot figure out how to watch channels live either.
It is so much better to just swipe through all the movies and shows, and double 
tap on one, and then explore the screen up toward the right hand corner for the 
media player.
Also, there is Tubie TV, which is much more accessible, and has a lot of the 
free stuff that Pluto has.
You will like Tubie a lot!
Next, is film rise. It has a lot of TV series and is accessible, but you have 
to work at all of these apps.
You have to do a lot of feeling around the screen, you cannot just swipe.
Also, I use Popcorn Flicks. It works well, but again, you have to feel back and 
forth on the screen. Swiping is pretty much useless with these apps.
Also, there is Free TV, another app.
Those are the free TV apps I use the most!
Have a great one!

Re: Questions regarding a recent upgrade

2019-06-09 Thread regina alvarado


Anna, I too just got a new phone. When I spoke to my carrier they also said I 
would have to unpair from my old phone and then re-pair with the new one. My 
transfer from iCloud went flawlessly, proud of myself, so I erased the old 
phone after activating with my carrier with the new one. At that point I 
suddenly remembered my watch 4. [I was not wearing it as it was later at night 
when I did the transfer.) Anyway, the next morning I picked up my watch 
expecting a necessary search on how to handle the mess on it, but when I opened 
it up and put in my code it opened. I was ecstatic, and believe it or not 
everything is where I had it. I did not unpair, though I am assuming it 
unpaired when I deleted all settings on my phone as directed by my carrier. I 
am interested to know two things. If I didn't unpair it from the other phone is 
there danger in not doing so? I would need to set up my old phone again and 
don't want to. Since I did nothing and everything is where it was and working 
fine do I now need to re-pair with the new phone? I know these are probably 
stupid questions, but I want my watch paired with my new phone correctly. 
Thanks for reading this long post and for your help.

Hello Jim,

If I understand you correctly, you did nothing special to your watch when you 
got your new phone. If that's the case, you need to unpair it from your old 
phone, if you still have it, and then re-pair with the new one. The reason for 
unpairing if possible is that the old phone will back up your watch. When you 
pair with the new phone, you should be able to restore from that watch backup. 
If you no longer have the old phone, you'll need to erase the watch and then 
pair it with the new one

best,
Anna

Re: Question re Assistive touch menu

2019-06-02 Thread regina alvarado

Hi, I have a friend who uses assistive touch because she is struggling with the 
swipe up to go home or to close an app. She also got her screen curtain on and 
couldn't get it off. I called to see if there was a gesture I could put in 
assistive touch so she could just tap on it to raise the curtain. She just 
couldn't do the 3 finger triple tap, though this morning she did it finally 
because she left it alone and she was relaxed this morning. Sometimes just 
better to put things down when frustration is high and try later.

Anyway, the Apple accessibility guy told me it was better if she tried to learn 
VO gestures as assistive touch is not made to work with VO. She couldn't put in 
a gesture because the sighted person taps on a little circle to make the custom 
gesture work. He said the menu goes all over the screen and sighted folks using 
it just drag it out of the way of what they are doing. There is no gesture 
connecting it with VO. I would say if there are a lot of blind people wanting 
to use this feature to its fullest that they write to Accessibility so Apple 
can make VO work with it properly. Though I have not seen her have problems 
going home with the assistive touch, he also told me that often the gestures we 
use with VO will not work quite correctly causing unnecessary re-doing to get 
where you want to be. Yes, our gestures are, or can be, difficult, (took me 
almost 2 months to do that blippy thing from the bottom of the screen, but 
persistence and practice pay dividends. For me now face ID and the blippy thing 
work most of the time. When they don't, one more try seems to do it. Have no 
idea why Apple didn't think blind people could have problems with their hands, 
but this is what I was told.

Re: Voice Dream Scanner

2019-05-07 Thread regina alvarado


I truly have never been as excited about a scanning app as I am Scanner. Even 
with hands that sometimes drive me nuts with their shaking (from medication) I 
am able to raise the phone from a page and it reads completely. Sometimes I 
need to do a second scan, but most of the time what I get is enough to realize 
I need it or it goes in the circular file, now mostly square files. LOL! Best 6 
dollars I have spent on an app and worth much more!! Even Seeing AI is not as 
good on documents, and Seeing AI blows KNFB out of the water. Anyone on the 
fence on this one because of price, spend the 6 dollars! It's a gem. Richard 
and anyone else who knows Chen can pass this along to him. Not sure where to go 
to tell him, and writing a review in app store can be a bear sometimes. Thanks.

Reggie Alvarado 

On May 7, 2019, at 9:51 AM, Cook, Steve  wrote:

The below article is from the May issue of Access World

Voice Dream Scanner: A New Kind of OCR 

There is a new player in the optical character recognition (OCR) space, and it 
comes from an old friend: Winston Chen, the developer of Voice Dream Reader and 
Voice Dream Writer, both of which we’ve reviewed in past issues of AccessWorld. 
In this article we’ll start out with a brief conversation with Chen. Then we’ll 
take a look at the developer’s latest offering: Voice Dream Scanner. Spoiler 
alert—it will probably be the best $5.99 you’ll ever spend on a text 
recognition app!

AccessWorld readers who use their phones to audibly read e-Pub books, PDFs or 
Bookshare titles are likely already familiar with Voice Dream Reader. It works 
so well with VoiceOver and TalkBack, it’s hard to believe it wasn’t developed 
specifically for the access market. But according to Chen, “I just wanted to 
build a pocket reader I could use to store all my books and files so I could 
listen to them on the go. No one was more surprised than me when I began 
receiving feedback from dyslexic and blind users describing how helpful Voice 
Dream Reader was for their needs and making some simple suggestions to improve 
the app’s accessibility.”

Chen’s second offering, Voice Dream Writer, was also directed at the mainstream 
market. “Sometimes it’s easier to proofread your document by listening to it 
instead of simply rereading the text,” says Chen. At the time, Apple’s 
VoiceOver cut and paste features and other block text manipulation capabilities 
were,shall we say, not quite what they are today? The innovative way Chen 
handled these functions made Voice Dream Writer equally useful to users with 
visual impairments.

Reinventing the OCR Engine

“I’ve been wanting to add OCR to Voice Dream Reader for a few years now,” says 
Chen. “It would be useful for reading protected PDF’s and handouts and memos 
from school and work.”

The hurdle Chen kept encountering was finding a useable OCR engine. “There are 
some free, open source engines, but they don’t work well enough for my 
purposes,” he says. “The ones that do work well are quite expensive, either as 
a one-time license purchase with each app sold or with ongoing pay-by-the-use 
options. Either of these would have raised the price I have to charge too much 
for my value proposition.”

Last year, however, Chen began experimenting with Apple’s artificial 
intelligence (AI), called Vision Framework, that’s built into the latest iOS 
versions, along with Google’s Tesseract, TensorFlow Lite, and ML Kit.

“Instead of using a single standard OCR engine, I combined the best aspects of 
each of these freely available tools, and I was pleasantly surprised by the 
results.”

Instead of making OCR a Voice Dream Reader feature, Chen decided to incorporate 
his discovery into a separate app called Voice Dream Scanner. “I considered 
turning it into an in-app purchase, only there are a lot of schools that use 
Reader and they aren’t allowed to make in-app purchases,” he says. As to why he 
didn’t simply make it a new Reader feature, he smiles, “I do have a family to 
feed.”

Chen has been careful to integrate the new Voice Dream Scanner functionality 
into VD Reader, however. For example, if you load a protected PDF file into the 
app and open it, the Documents tab now offers a recognition feature. You can 
now also add to your Voice Dream Reader Library not only from Dropbox, Google 
Drive, and other sources, including Bookshare, but using your device’s camera 
as well.

To take advantage of this integration you’ll need both Voice Dream Reader and 
Voice Dream Scanner. Both can be purchased from the iOS App Store. VD Reader is 
also available for Android, but currently VD Scanner is iOS only.

Of course you don’t have to have VD Reader to enjoy the benefits of the new 
Voice Dream Scanner.

A Voice Dream Scanner Snapshot

The app installs quickly and easily, and displays with the icon name “Scanner” 
on your iOS device. Aim the camera toward a page of text. The app displays a 
real-time video image preview which is also the “Capture Image” 

Re: Voice Dream Scanner.

2019-04-08 Thread regina alvarado
I just tried VDS. Wow, is all I can say! Compared to other scanners out there 
it outshines them all. I just took a piece of paper, put phone down in the 
middle, lifted it up to where the tone was fairly steady and took the picture. 
First try, great OCR! Never before on any of these apps did I even come close 
on Ocr the first time! My hands shake too much. However, VDS was immediate! 
Impressed.

And who really cares if KNFB Reader ups their game or not. It’s a free and

Scanner $5.99. KNFB Reader was developed by the NFB and I assume they do get 
grants and such whereas Voice Dream Scanner is developed by a guy who I assume 
does not. Maybe Winston has other income than that from his various apps, but 
the same applies to the Seeing Eye GPS, at an outright purchase price of $299 
it is pretty expensive especially since Sendero also received a lot of grants 
to develop it.

I did read through some mail this morning but felt that as I worked through 
what I had, there may have been a degradation in scan quality after doing and 
discarding several documents. I tried closing the program and restarting and 
finally got something which identified what I had, but just wondering if anyone 
else has noted this. It might have been that I was set up at my kitchen table 
and I am personally not as comfortable out there as I am in my big chair, page 
in my lap, phone to the center of the document, lifting and positioning 
properly to get picture. I will play with it some more. Overall, impressed and 
pleased and think it will ultimately be useful until or if NFB gets things back 
in action with KNFB Reader.
 
Russ, Thank you as well for that link. That demonstration was clearer to hear,

still functioning as they should, and I’m still getting notifications, just no

Hearing max

2019-03-17 Thread regina alvarado


hi all, I am currently trying out a pair of hearing aids. I am supposed to have 
the ability to run the aids myself with an app called hearing max which I have 
installed. I have my aids bluetoothed to my phone. However, I am having some 
difficulty with the app. Is there anyone who uses this app who would be willing 
to give me some pointers about accessing the features of the app? If so, 
contact me by email or text at:

Thank you in advance for any help.

Re: IPhone X and screen sensitivity?

2019-02-08 Thread regina alvarado


Shermeen, I do not know if this will help. It did for me. I am running an 
iPhone X. Go to settings, general, accessibility, and swipe down to 3D touch. 
Double tap. There is something about 3D touch and right below that is a rotor 
setting for screen pressure for 3D. I set mine to medium, and it helped. Hope 
this helps you also.

Re: iPhone 10 question about no home button

2019-01-28 Thread regina alvarado


Not sure the side button works by pushing the power button. I just tried it, 
and all I can get it to say from locked screen is 8 notifications. Sure wished 
it worked. If I want to read my notifications from that screen I unlock. Hmmm! 
Maybe accessibility needs to get this suggestion.

Re: iPhone 10 question about no home button

2019-01-28 Thread regina alvarado


Holly, in settings on the X there is a setting in accessibility to be able to 
just tap the screen. It will take you to your notifications and if I remember 
correctly it will give you the time or you can swipe to it. Screen is still 
locked however, and face ID is necessary to read any notifications. Please 
someone correct me if I am incorrect where this option is. 

Speaking of that screen when you tap the locked screen. I found a way to give 
light to face ID on this screen as it has a difficult time with face ID in 
darkness. If I turn on the flashlight in the lower left corner it will give 
enough light to unlock the notification screen. When I hear it unlock I turn 
off the flashlight again and swipe from the bottom of the screen to go to the 
home screen.

Hello group:

I am considering upgrading to a IPhone 10.  I now have a iPhone 7.

One thing I was wondering about is the fact that the 10 has no home button. I 
like to take my phone to bed at night and keep it under my pillow.  I enable 
the 'do not disturb' feature from the time I go to bed until morning, so I 
won't get any alerts or calls.

When I wake up during the night, I can just find my phone under my pillow, put 
it under my ear and hit the home button to hear the time announced. This way I 
don't disturb my sleeping spouse.

If I got a 10, what gesture would I have to make, or what button would I press 
to hear the time announced?



Thanks in advance.

Hello Mark,


Thanks for your post regarding the recent turbulent post on this group.

I do not normally get involved in what I shall call the politics of any list.  
I have moderated lists in the past and it can be a thankless task as you know 
only too well.

In the hope of giving a balance to recent events I must say this list has been 
a joy to be a member of over the years as well as being informative.  I doubt 
berry much if I would be as a proficient iPhone user were it not for this list.

None of us are perfect and he who has never made a mistake never made anything.

I find you to be a reasonable man and list moderator.  No doubt others will 
disagree and criticise me for saying so.

If I unsubscribed from every list where I have disagreed with a post or 
moderator’s action my inbox would be a quiet place.

So from one list member who intends remaining as such accept my thanks for a 
job well done.

Gmail app questions

2019-01-28 Thread regina alvarado
Question: Having some frustration with the native mail app. People who are 
using gmail: how do I set the app to do conversations? Also, I have gmail set 
so no matter what device I use it will delete email on all devices when deleted 
on the device being used. Is this a function of website or the app itself? 
Thanks in advance.

Re: Help from Amazon Fwd: Your Amazon.com Inquiry

2019-01-09 Thread regina alvarado

I am hoping Amazon is on the problem with the app. I just spent about an hour 
on the phone with 3 different people. The last person sent a form up hopefully 
to app developer with the problem. In the meantime the workaround is to turn 
voice over off when focused on the use this address button and touch the 
screen. It then goes through so it is Amazon's app working with VO that is the 
problem. It would be interesting to know if same is true for Droid users, at 
least to me. LOL. Anyway that is our workaround for now. Hope that helps anyone 
who wants to use the amazon app.

Amazon app again.

Nothing is working. I share a prime with a friend, and I cannot change either 
billing address or shipping address in Amazon. Any other ideas? What is the

How to change to a different shipping address in Amazon app

2019-01-07 Thread regina alvarado
This is a very strange problem considering I bought a lot using my amazon app 
at Christmas. I am actually asking for a friend, but I found out myself it 
doesn't work for me either.

So, I put something in my cart. I go to place my order. I go down to billing 
address and tap on my name. Now I check my card and continue. Now my shipping 
address I want to make different from my billing address. I tap on billing 
address and it takes me to addresses on my app. I find the one I want, check 
it, but when I tap where it says use this address as a button it goes nowhere. 
My only option is then to edit address or cancel and continue shopping. I have 
reinstalled the app, the same. Does anyone have any ideas? I use Amazon a lot 
so any thoughts would be very helpful. Thank you so much.

you can use accent marks with the standard onscreen keyboard. If you leave your 
finger on the letter for a while, you should hear a tone and VoiceOver should 
say alternative characters available. For example, I've written Mexico after 
this sentence using the accented e. México.
I am not sure if that is the correct accent mark, but the iPhone didn't say it 
was misspelled, so hopefully it was the correct one.
When the phone says alternative characters available, slide your finger left or 
right to see what accents you can use.

Re: really struggling with the home button on the 10 r

2018-12-15 Thread regina alvarado


There is really a big learning curve to no home button! Hang in there. Many 
times I wanted to trade my X. Practice, practice and more practice. Two things 
to remember:

1. Go to very bottom of the screen to find the haptic, and I mean the very 
bottom. Now, there are three different pressures for your finger. The lightest 
touch is where you get haptics to open. The second touch is 3D touch which is a 
little harder. Of course using that touch you need to focus on an icon like 
messages before you can use it. So you run your finger lightly along the bottom 
until you feel a jump or hear it or both. I had to turn my finger 90 degrees to 
the screen to find. When you get the feedback you gently and lightly push up 
with your finger until you feel the jump again or hear it or both. That opens 
the screen. From the top you can do the same thing and get notifications and 
one more jump gives control center. Warning: I may have this backward, but the 
motion is same. Now too automatic until I get the wrong one! LOL. It is just 
such a light touch. After a while your muscle memory will remember. 

2. Now when you have the motion down, remember it shortens your screen when 
doing something on the phone. Many times I have closed off apps or gone back to 
home by getting down too far on the screen. No problem, but takes practice 
also. Other frustration for me was face ID. Again, practice is what is needed. 
I had to learn what level to hold my phone for it to recognize. I have never 
seen a camera so looking at it is foreign. I always listened to voices when I 
was in a pic. Apple has made it easier for us to not need attention to the 
screen, but it still is not an easy thing to get used to, at least for me. Hope 
this helps in some small way.

In my eyes, i am doing everything as advertised, swiping up, holding
my finger on the screen.  The phone just keeps going click click click
click click click click,  click click click.  It's very much hit or
miss.  I'd say out of 12 times i try and unlock the phone i may get it
once.  I've never struggled with something like this this bad.  What

Re: IT REALLY WORKS AND A CAUTION

2018-12-01 Thread regina alvarado


Oh yes it works! My condolences for the embarrassment! I have had my watch call 
emergency services um maybe three times! It even called when the watch was off 
my wrist! I called AccessibilitY, and they told me to turn all the settings off 
and back on and then hard reboot the watch by holding the crown button and the 
side button. They also routed my watch info to Apple for the engineers to 
monitor. Well, it has been almost three weeks since the watch has called 
emergency. So, you might try those things. I am left handed and my watch is on 
that wrist. You also may want to try putting it on your opposite wrist from the 
one you are using for conducting. This I have not been successful doing, but it 
is a thought. Now if I can stop calling SOS on my phone ... Think I am not 
catching the little dunk when I am turning off my phone because of my hearing 
loss. So, I avoid turning off my phone but for dire need. LOL. I am getting to 
be known by Zephyrhills finest in more ways than just phone or watch, story not 
Apple related!

Hi all,


Here's a quick story which should get you all laughing but it has its serious 
side as well! Yes, it is about the use of the emergency callout following a 
fall! ...


The trouble is, in my case it wasn't a fall but an attempt to act as conductor 
at our evening song practice. There I was sitting on an arm chair, beating time 
vigorously, and then the watch on my wrist came into action. Yes, I was through 
to emergency with a number of friends listening in! 


I have realised that I must never use my left hand as a drumb whilst wearing my 
watch.


Be careful, everyone, but be prepared to explain (or not) about the music 
practice which resulted in such an action!

gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend all 
day on a couch with a resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirits of a 
broken heart." So God made a dog.
