Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today we'll be looking at using a rotor gesture. You know, the rotor is probably my favorite gesture because it makes it possible for us to move through our text by characters, words and lines, and even web items such as headings, links, and form fields. Yeah, you gotta love the rotor. So let's jump right in and check it all out. All right, so how do we get to our rotor?
Well, we have our rotor gesture. Now it really helps to think of our rotor gesture like maybe the same motion that we would use when we open a bottle or a soft drink cap. Now we'll need to place two of our fingers on our screen, and it doesn't matter which two fingers we use, however, most people seem to prefer using their thumb and their index finger. So to start our rotor, we'll just place our two fingers on our screen.
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?
