Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today we will be checking out our Speak Screen feature. Now Speak Screen is meant to be used by those of us with low vision, and this is a super nice feature that can really help to reduce eye fatigue by reading aloud everything that's on our screen. So if we happen to find that we're having eye strain, headaches by the end of the day because we've read too many emails or maybe articles on our favorite news site, then Speak Screen is a must-have feature.
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 out our Speak Screen feature.
All right, we will first need to turn on Speak Screen before we can actually use it, and we will turn it on from within our Settings app.
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?
