Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today we are going to be taking a look at a really simple way that we have for quickly turning on and off VoiceOver. Now for those of you that might not know, VoiceOver is Apple's 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 the information that is on our screen, and that is pretty fantastic.
All right, if we're new to our Apple TV, we're really going to need to know some basic VoiceOver gestures, and these are the gestures that we will use for navigating through our Apple TV. If we don't yet know these gestures well, it's our lucky day because we just so happen to have an Apple TV video called Beginning VoiceOver Gestures, so we are really going to want to check out that video as well.
Ed Haines: 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?
