Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today we will be looking at how to use our built-in magnifier. Now, our magnifier uses our device's back-facing camera to view images that we can then enlarge on our screen, and I use it for everything from checking the temperature on my thermostat to reading price tags, and even things like reading the items on a menu in a restaurant. I tell you, I really do use my magnifier for just about everything.
Now, we're using our iPad in today's workshop. However, all of this will work pretty much the same, whether we're using our iPad, our iPhone, or even our iPod Touch. So let's jump right in and check it all out.
To demonstrate all of the features in our magnifier, we will be using our "Hadley Headlines" newsletter. All right, our magnifier app is right here on our home screen, so we will just tap it to open it up.
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?
